With holidays rolling around, it’s finally time to again listen to some phenomenal holiday music. While some Scrooges feel like Christmas music can be played too early, it’s never too soon to listen to some merry tunes.

Holiday music never fails to lift the moods of listeners.  Whether you like traditional, merry songs or upbeat, fun songs, there is something for everyone in the wide array of holiday music.

Senior Anna McLean said, “I love Christmas music. Everything to do with the holidays makes me happy because it’s my favorite time of year. At my house at least, it’s a time for traditions, family, and love, and Christmas music represents that.”

Senior Courtney Berry prefers the Pentatonix Christmas album. “They have transformed the music while still having the traditional tune.”

Senior Grace Von Elten said, “I love all Christmas music so much. I definitely like the classics more.”
