Guest Post: Ultimate Christmas Playlist

I was going to start this post off very  formal, something like: “hello everyone, my name is Sarah” LAME. It’s Christmas, in fact, we have 8 days until Christmas (WE ARE IN THE SINGLE DIGITS). So let me start this off right….


My name is Sarah Ripley and I’ll be your guest today.

<——— it me.

First of all, I absolutely adore Ashley and this blog and I am completely honour to be apart of her blogmas this year. 

I decided that I’m going to talk about something that I am very passionate about, and that is music. Music is the universal language. Music brings people together, and coincidentally that’s how I met Ashley. I love that there’s a song for pretty much anything. I have a playlist for every mood… you name it, I got it. In the spirit of getting festive, I’m going to name my Christmas playlist MUST HAVES. 

Without further ado…


Sleigh Ride – Pentatonix

This song is an absolute jam. You can’t listen to this song without moving your body to it. Its so fun and it’s perfect to brighten up a cold, winter night. 

Drummer Boy – Justin Bieber

Im a 23 year old woman, and let me tell you, this song will ignite your inner rapper. Impress your friends by knowing all the words. 

Let It Be Christmas – Alan Jackson

Since I was a little girl, this has been my moms favourite Christmas song, and she kind of passed that love onto me. It reminds us that Christmas is much more than presents and I absolutely love that. 

That Time of Year – Cast of Frozen 

I HAD to add this song, it’s so adorable! Last year, they played a 30 minute Frozen Christmas special before the movie Coco and this song was apart of it. It’s just a goofy and extremely catchy Christmas tune. Trust me, just listen to it.  

Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas – Sam Smith

Let’s slow it down a bit, this is an absolutely beautiful song. We all know Sam’s voice, it’s so powerful and this song is a Christmas classic. It gives me chills EVERYTHING. 

Hoping For Snow – The Vamps

A completely underrated song. An original song by The Vamps and it tells a very cute story. I have also loved The Vamps for their storytelling and they don’t disappoint. 


 Shake Up Christmas – Train 

I saved the absolute best for last. Ever since the Coca Cola commercial back in…. 2010? I have been obsessed with this song. It’s the first song I listen to every year to signify the start of the Christmas season. It tells a great story and never fails to make me smile. 

These are just a few of the many amazing Christmas songs. You can find these and many more on my Spotify playlist:  

Thank you so much for checking out this blog post and a huge thanks to Ashley for asking me to be apart of her blog. I am currently in the process of creating my own blog because of lots of encouragement from Ashley.

Merry Christmas everyone! 


PS: The best way to spread Christmas cheer is singing loud for all to hear!
