The Best Holiday Anthem According to your Zodiac Sign

This article is written by a student writer from the Her Campus at U Vic chapter.

Ah, it’s that time of year again, when Michael Bublé and Mariah Carey rise to run the world (or at least supermarket playlists). If you’re looking for other music suggestions besides All I Want For Christmas is You, look no further!


Mariah Carey’s “Oh Santa!” featuring Ariana Grande and Jennifer Hudson is the upbeat song you need to get through those long holiday dinners. 


Lil Nas X switches up your traditional holiday music by incorporating lyrics that spice up the party. Let’s just say “Ho Ho Ho” has a different meaning!


Is your playlist REALLY a holiday playlist without Paul McCartney’s “Wonderful Christmastime”?


I apologize in advance if you are participating in “Whamageddon” this year. 


If you’ve had 90s classics on repeat this year, Destiny’s Child created the absolute banger “8 Days of Christmas” that is a must-have on your playlist this year!


Mariah Carey has been popping off lately with holiday collaborations, with her most recent collaboration featuring Khalid and Kirk Franklin. Prepare for sultry vibes!


Elton John and Ed Sheeran have recently collaborated to create possibly the best holiday-themed music video ever, while still maintaining that classic old-school holiday aura. This song is perfect for your laid-back December evenings!


Train’s “Shake Up Christmas” is an underrated classic, incorporating some light rock themes into your holiday playlist!


To keep everyone on a Taylor Swift listening spree, you need to support your Sagittarius twin by playing “Christmas Tree Farm” on repeat!


In honour of #FreedBritney, Britney Spears has holiday hit that’s a must for your Christmas playlist!


Last holiday season, the Jonas Brothers created their instant classic “Like It’s Christmas” for an upbeat tune while you do some holiday baking!


Idina Menzel and Michael Bublé’s music video for their rendition of “Baby It’s Cold Outside” is a must watch for the holiday season!

Okay, we won’t judge if you add all of these hits to your mixtape! In fact, we have a premade Spotify playlist here for your listening pleasure!
