I’m not going to lie to you guys: I love the holiday season. I love the chill in the air, the pep in everyone’s step, the homes decorated and filled with happy memories made and to be made. There’s just something so wonderful about this time of year.
When I was really considering what songs get me into the holiday spirit for this week’s 5 Fandom Friday, my immediate thought was, ‘this list is going to be completely filled with *NSYNC songs from their Christmas album.’ And I ended up being almost right! The more I thought about it, though, the more I realized there were a couple of others I felt needed to make it onto my list.
A Holly Jolly Christmas by Burl Ives
Baby, It’s Cold Outside by Seth MacFarlane, Sara Bareilles
Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays by *NSYNC
O Holy Night by *NSYNC
Under My Tree by *NSYNC
I love hearing these songs on the radio in a store or blasting from my Spotify playlists during the month of December. They trigger so many wonderful memories every time. For whatever reason, listening to Christmas songs from Burl Ives and Bing Crosby always remind me of the classic claymation movies Rudolph, Santa Claus is Coming to Town, and Frosty. I get so excited whenever they come on TV every year.
And, honestly, who is going to disagree that the *NSYNC Christmas album isn’t one of the Top 3 all-time best? I love it and I was a BSB girl. ‘Nuff said.
What music gets you in the holiday mood? And how do you really feel about the *NSYNC Christmas album? Let me know!
