A Christmas mixtape

Merry Christmas, everyone!

My family just came back from Misa de Gallo, and I just want to say I am so thankful I got to go again after years of not being able to. You see, this is the first time I am experiencing non-working holidays ever since I joined the workforce almost six years ago. I guess that's another proof that I made the right career choice. :)

I won't make this long and winding. I just want to say that I made you guys a Christmas mixtape. I've been listening to the songs I put here all December and I thought it would be a nice digital present from me to you.  These are really nice songs and I hope you like them!


Do You Hear What I Hear? - Carrie Underwood
O Holy Night - Lea Michele
Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas - Colbie Caillat
Winter Wonderland - Jason Mraz
2,000 Miles - Coldplay
Last Christmas - Florence and the Machine
My Only Wish (This Year) - Britney Spears
Seasons of Love - from Rent

Is it obvious that I also gave much thought on how to organize the list of songs so that they'll somehow tell a story? Ha ha.

Aside from 2,000 Miles (which is depressing as hell but I feel like I really should put it there), all these songs easily put me into a jolly Christmas mood. Yup, even the mellow ones. I especially like Jason Mraz's rendition of Winter Wonderland because it sounds so cheery and happy. As for Last Christmas, pardon me but I couldn't find a copy of the song without the background chatter. It was recorded live and is proof of how powerful Florence Welch's voice is. I am not kidding, she sounds like a superhero! And of course, My Only Wish (This Year) is a big, fat, red hint to Santa and the Universe ;D

I'd like to think Seasons of Love is the nice little ribbon that ties the playlist together - kinda like a segue to next week's New Year celebrations, if you will.

So there! When we wake up later (provided I get to sleep; my Santa belly is filled with too much chocolate cake!) we will go to our relatives for a big Cruz family reunion. How about you?

I wish you peace, love and lipgloss, and I hope that however which way you plan to celebrate this day, I pray you celebrate it with the people you hold most dear. Merry Christmas!
