Music for the Holidays: Family-Friendly Spotify Playlists for this Christmas Season

Christmastime calls for many things. Decorating your house and tree, pulling out your nativity scene, consuming lots of candy canes and hot chocolate, watching fun movies with festive socks, and, obviously, listening to Christmas music!

There have been a lot of additions to the Christmas holiday over the years, and even so, many different places and people still have unique ways they celebrate. Something that brings a lot of people together, though, is music. Some Christmas music reflects on the memories and emotions that Christmas brings, while some Christmas music reflects on the true meaning behind the holiday—celebrating the birth of our Savior, Jesus Christ! Whether you start listening to Christmas music on November 1 or only the week of Christmas, it’s no doubt that Christmas music is a much loved and very impactful tradition worldwide.

Because of the wide variety of Christmas music out there and its ability to bring people together, we’ve created four playlists on Spotify for different Christmas settings you may find yourself in throughout this time of year. We hope these will bring you both joy and truth this season!
