Let's party

Let's party

Do you like how I named this "Christmas Edition" like I write a Travelin' Tunesday post every Tuesday? I know, genius. I won't even attempt to say that I'll keep this up, but who knows, maybe I will. I couldn't resist the title though. For THIS Travelin' Tunesday post, I decided to give you my all-time favorite Christmas/New Years songs! I'll NEVER tell you my top 10 favorite songs or albums of 2013 though. Top secret. Hint: It does not involve Lorde (gasp!) (just kidding it does) (maybe). Ok, here we go. Feel free to be judgey:

  1. Hard Candy Christmas - Dolly Parton
  2. Last Christmas - Wham
  3. Christmas Wrapping - The Waitresses
  4. A Christmas to Remember - Dolly Parton and Kenny Rogers
