Now that winter is in full swing (we’ve gotten plenty of snow here in Minneapolis!), listening to Christmas music is a must. Since we here at Award Vodka are all girls in their 20s with good taste, we wanted to share the best Christmas albums that you need to own if you are a girl in her 20s.
1. Amy Grant: Home for Christmas
Amy Grant takes you back to middle school, making up dance routines, belting these songs with your sisters while mom watched and sang along. Admit it, you wanted to be Amy Grant when you grew up – I mean, who wouldn’t want that hair? I know my 5th grade self definitely did.
2. Mariah Carey: Merry Christmas
Not only is “All I Want For Christmas Is You” the best Christmas song of all time, but it automatically can make you the life of any party. Request it at the DJ booth, put it on your holiday party’s playlist, use 3 credits on your TouchTunes App to play it at any bar you walk into. Trust us, you can’t go wrong with this song.
3. NSYNC: Home for the Holidays
4. Celine Dion: These Are The Special Times
Celine is a goddess we all worshiped, in the 90s, in the 2000s and still today. This album has all the classics with that special Celine touch that will give you shivers every time.
5. Michael Buble: Christmas
Michael makes us feel like classy young women, and who doesn’t love that. While listening to this album, I can bet you are picturing yourself sitting by the fire, in a warm fuzzy long red robe, sipping a hot toddy while Michael and his lovely eyes treat you to a private concert right there in your living room. Swoon.
Runner up: Harry Connick Jr., Harry for the Holidays
6. Hanson: Snowed In
7. Bing Crosby: Merry Christmas
This one only made the list because it reminds us of our grandparents and Christmas of past. No doubt they made you listen to it growing up, or they made your parents listen to it and they passed it down on to you. This is the ultimate classic Christmas album and if it wasn’t included, this list would automatically be discredited.
