#WinterWonderland: An Alternative Christmas Playlist for When You're Tired of the Traditional Tunes

I love pretty much everything about the holiday season: houses decorated with twinkling lights, gift-giving, cold nights and warm drinks. Because the holiday season puts me in such a great mood, I usually begin celebrating way earlier than socially acceptable. This means I usually start listening to Christmas music by Nov. 1 (at the very latest).

However, I admit that traditional songs can get old or feel a little cheesy. If you're anything like me, and you love Christmas music, but you are tired of listening to the same carols on repeat, this playlist is for you.

"A Very Alternative Christmas" is a playlist of holiday-themed music by alternative rock or indie artists. The songs are either original songs or covers of traditional ones in an alternative style.

You can listen to the playlist here. It includes 25 songs total and is approximately one hour and 24 minutes long.

Here's a sample of some of the music on the mix:

  1. 1. White Winter Hymnal by Fleet Foxes

  2. 2. Last Christmas by Jimmy Eat World

  3. 3. Pretty Paper by The Lumineers

  4. 4. Christmas Wrapping by The Waitresses

  5. 5. Just Like Christmas by Low
