Oh my goodness – it's December! And you know what that means? That's right! It's time to put up the Christmas tree, crack open a beer (or pour yourself a glass of bubbles, if you're classy!) and put on some Christmas carols!!
I love Christmas, I really do! I love the atmosphere, and the joy and the frantic rush to get everything done before everyone goes on annual leave. Closely followed by watermelon, cold drinks, lazy summer days, swimming pools and salt-sticky bodies after a day spent at the beach. So, so GOOD!
I love Christmas carols too, but I seriously despise the crappy, over-produced elevator Christmas music soundtrack that's been ubiquitous since Halloween ended. It's truly awful.
So to help stop your ears from bleeding, and welcome the festive season with style, this month's playlist features loads of vintage Christmas carols by Nat King Cole, Ella Fitzgerald and Bing Crosby, as well one single, truly Australian, Christmas song that never fails to make me pause and listen.
Welcome to the festive season, friends! I hope it's wonderful!
