Season's Greetings

The day after thanksgiving my Christmas music is on, my decor is up and I am watching Elf. The holidays are here and I couldn't be happier. Whenever I am homesick I listen to Christmas music, so I'm glad I actually have a legitimate excuse to listen to it haha. Like the past few years, for the whole month of December my playlists will be Christmas/winter music - from classics to indies. And if you're like me, the songs will make you feel all warm inside, but most of all remind you of being home for the holidays with family and friends (a rewarding thought during finals!)
1. Men of Snow – Ingrid Michaelson
2. Baby, It’s Cold Outside - Leon Redbone & Zooey Deschanel
3. Blue Christmas – A Fine Frenzy
4. White As Snow – Jon Foreman
5. Once In Royal David’s City – Sufjan Stevens
6. White Christmas – Dean Martin
7. Season’s Greetings – Robbers on High Street
8. I’ve Got My Love to Keep Me Warm – Frank Sinatra
9. All I Want For Christmas – Matt Costa
10. All My Bells Are Ringing - Lenka
Above is a picture of the tree in my bedroom at home. Its a huge silver tinsel light up tree with sparkly ornaments on it :)

Lenka and Zooey Deschanel - so adore! Your Christmas tree is cuter than cute - and ELF! I went through a phase for three whole months years ago where I answered the phone saying "Erika the elf, what's your favorite color?" Sad but true! :)
