Everyday is Christmas (If Sia Says So)

Christmas is my absolute favorite holiday, and the music is one of the greatest parts about it. My deep love for this season is what fuels my desire to preserve and keep Christmas in its place. If we play Christmas music from October to January, then it’s not really Christmas music. Rather, it’s just fall/winter music! If EVERY DAY is Christmas, then NO DAY is Christmas. Or at least, that’s what I thought, until Australian singer-songwriter Sia blessed 2017 with an early Christmas gift.

Sia released her new Christmas album, Everyday is Christmas, on November 17, 2017, and the only thing better than a new Sia album, is a new Sia Christmas album. If Sia, one of the greatest artists of this generation, says its Christmas, then it is Christmas, no questions asked.

The album has as many fun festive songs as it does slow jams. “Candy Cane Lane” will make you feel like you’re in elementary school again, putting out cookies for Santa. “Santa’s Coming for Us” is another fun one that reflects some of Sia’s earlier, pre- “Chandelier” work. It also has the perfect feel for a music video featuring Maddie Ziegler, who is on the album cover. “Snowman” is the kind of slow ballad I can imagine Michel Bublé featuring doing a cover of. It’s the perfect song for a slow dance by the fire place in a room sparkling with Christmas lights.

The album doesn’t have any classic songs on it, which is challenging for a Christmas album, but if anyone can make it with all original material, it’s definitely this Grammy-award winning artist. So, put on your sweater, grab a cup of hot cocoa, and rejoice in the fact that Everyday Is Christmas!
