In addition to a good, wintery read, there is something about holiday music that brings the winter months to life. While the holidays may look different this season, we compiled a “Home for the Holidays” list of seasonal songs that will make you want to bust a move to the groove, sing along, mellow your mood, tap your toes, bundle up in front of a fire, decorate your home, or some combination of celebration. Whatever you celebrate, there is a song from you. We tried to keep this list inclusive, knowing that our Libraries serve diverse customers with equally diverse beliefs.
Whether you’re a reindeer, the Grinch or someone who speaks native Hawaiian, we’ve got you covered.
One thing to note, before you get jiggy with your jingle jams, you will need to have your Library card or ONE Access ID number handy to log in and stream this Freegal Music playlist.
