Ultimate Christmas Playlist

Today is the day the Welgo family starts decorating for Christmas! 
It is absolutely, without a doubt, our favorite time of the year. So just like a lot of other people we get into the Christmas spirit pretty quickly! 

Throughout the years come up with a list of songs that are my absolute favorite Christmas songs; I have to listen to them every year. They put me in the holiday spirit and they remind me of Christmas’ past when my grandfather was still with us and when life felt simpler. So, basically, they always make me happy.

I thought I would not only share my top 100 favorite Christmas songs with you guys but I would also create and share a Spotify playlist with you so you can enjoy these amazing songs with me!
