Our Favorite Christmas Songs

by Ashley Alongi and Olivia Billbrough

It’s that time of year again: blinking lights, tall evergreen trees and the knowledge that if you’re an old white man with a beard, you should definitely not be wearing red. And the music, the music that starts to play throughout department stores in October. Christmas Music is the first sign that the holiday season is beginning. But you don’t have to listen to the same Charlie Brown Christmas CD (however amazing and nostalgic it may be), for there are so many amazing covers of classic songs and even some awesome originals by some pretty cool bands.
