Last year, my Christmas blogging plans were interrupted by the trauma induced by the sudden death of my beloved iMac of 6 years. It derailed a lot of my Christmas plans. Even though I was only without a computer for three days (I got a MacBook Pro as a replacement), it was such a weird adjustment period (I couldn't watch all my Christmas movies on my TV because my MacBook was too new to hook up with my old TV!) that I scrapped a lot of plans. Those plans included a lot more Christmas blogging and even some decorations DIYs. This year my Christmas blogging as been interrupted by working long hours, laziness, and just generally not blogging much all year.
Lucky for you, though, I'm finally here to post the second half of my Best Christmas Playlist Ever! This list is the best original songs I have. And maybe it's a good thing this list waited a year because I've added a few new songs to the list this year.
***Update: Grooveshark doesn't exist anymore, so there's no playlist here to listen to, but you can look up the songs on iTunes easily!
