The holiday season is upon us and Christmas is fast approaching! What better way to celebrate than listening to some classic jams? I guarantee the songs on this list will put you in a happy mood. This playlist is mostly comprised of songs from a Christmas CD my dad had made when I was very young, so these songs are very special to me and they will always remind me of Christmastime. I hope you too can dance and sing along to these songs as you get ready for Christmas!
