• Hmm… I usually prefer instrumental Christmas music, but a lot of these are super fun to bop around to while I bake my pie and stir, stir, stir the fudge! 🙂

  • Love your blog! I was wondering where you got those cool woven pots for your snake plants? I’ve been looking all over and I can’t find them anywhere!

  • wrapping presents…thanks for the music! all of my good old christmas tunes are on vinyl or tape and I have no players left! The horror!

  • YAY! Christmas is here!!

  • Hey girls, I just wanted to let you know that half the time (most of the time?) abeautifulmess.com doesn’t load! I click on a post in my Bloglovin’ feed and it gives me a “server not found” error. And I know it’s not just Bloglovin’ because going straight to abeautifulmess.com gives the same error.
    It might be just my connection for some reason, but I don’t have this problem with any other blog. Are you guys just sooooo popular that your server can’t handle it? LOL
    P.S. I’ve never experienced the problem with Everyday Elsie or Emma.
    Just thought you should know! 🙂

  • Love that photo!! Especially the oversized light bulbs. Christmas music is the perfect way to get in the holiday spirit…. one more week!!


  • So many of my favorites on this list! Listening now. What a great pick me up toward the end of my day. Thank you ladies 🙂


  • I’m not a big fan of traditional christmas music, but there are a lot of songs in here I do love 🙂


  • Hoping to do Christmas baking tomorrow and this will be the perfect companion. Thanks for sharing your favorites.

  • Not a fan of Christmas Music (10 years as a Hobby Lobby framer will do that to you, that frame shop just ECHOES the songs). I usually create a seasonal track of songs that remind me of winter.


  • I suggest listening to any and all Christmas songs recorded by The Ronettes. You just can’t beat Phil Spector’s wall of sound!

  • How awesome! Between all those holiday recipes, DIY and outfits that’s been on every blog, I’ve been missing this. Such a great playlist. Love it ♥

  • I would add some Michael Bublé, but I still think it’s a great holiday playlist 🙂
