‘Tis the season to be jolly! And as proof that the holiday season is upon us, one must hear certain songs that really get you in the mood. Yeah, we know that Brenda Lee has that “Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree” song and it is like one of the most popular holiday jingles out there, only recently being bounced out the number 1 spot by Mariah Carey’s “All I Want for Christmas,” but ain’t nobody playing those songs in the hood. We most certainly are not thinking about them when we are in a yuletide way.
Check out these ten songs that we have compiled for our Christmas playlist and tell us if we got it right.
