A Christmas Playlist

I have to admit, I started listening to Christmas music around Halloween...what can I say? Holiday spirit has been in abundance this year. There is something about Christmas music that brings me back to my childhood, and fills me with an excitement and eagerness to create my own holiday traditions as I grow older. 
One of my favorite memories from being a kid is Christmas Eve. My dad would read my siblings and I The Night Before Christmas and then my sister and I would put out the milk and cookies and hide the Baby Jesus somewhere for St. Nicholas to find; we would then make our way upstairs and turn on the radio (back when we used radios, right?) and found the 24/7 Christmas station. We had separate rooms so we put the radio in the hall on the floor and fell asleep listening to the melodies of all our favorites. We still carry out this tradition every year, and it is one of the things I am most looking forward to when I return home in two weeks. 
These are my favorite Christmas songs, tried and true. 

Christmas Canon by the Trans-Siberian Orchestra

What will you be listening to this Christmas season? Do you tend to stick to the classics or do you like to discover new favorites each year?
