It’s not that I don’t like Christmas/holiday music. I do. Honestly! But, if you’re like me and work in an office broadcasting Spotify’s Christmas station (with ads) for nearly 8 hours a day, only to take a break and hear the exact same tunes at your coffee shop, you might agree that it’s time for a time out. So, as much as I love Mariah Carey’s impeccable version of “All I want for Christmas” (which is really saying something, because it’s probably my favorite Christmas tune of all time), I’m here to offer a Totally Un-Holiday Holiday Mix, first made by a friend of a friend a few years ago. Obviously, it’s time for some re-gifting. And what’s more un-holiday than re-gifting? Maybe don’t answer that. Anyhow, here you’ll find not one mention of snow, reindeer, or St. Nick. There might be mention of being bad or good, but that’s life. And for that, it’s not coal in your stocking you should be worried about, but karma. I mean, right? Without further adieu, you can stream below, or download here. Enjoy!
