This week’s bonus is our December playlist- Hang a String of Lights!
I realize that this month’s playlist is for those that celebrate the Christmas holiday, but I hope you will allow me this one indulgence annually.
Even if you don’t celebrate this holiday, I have tried to find some beautiful tunes that just embrace all the winter feels. Since this week is all about those winter feelings, I couldn’t think of a better pairing.
Today’s post links to all of our past playlists so if you are new to the community, be sure to browse around this post for all of the tunes.
