I really love this time of year. Amid all the holiday parties and sugary joy, December is also a key time for me to hunker down a little bit, find quiet in my life and reflect on the year that’s coming to a close. I can feel myself making time to listen and dream and hope and drink hot cocoa more. And while I sometimes think I could never tire of Santa’s Workout Playlist, I still need music that I can carry with me into the cold and bleak days of January.
So, I made a Wintry Mix that is hopefully much more enjoyable than the weather version. (My dad jokes are getting worse and worse.) These are the songs that’ll be keepin’ my spirits warm until Spring. As always, I’ll add more as the season goes on. Until then, I hope this first batch keeps you cozy.
