Contribute to Our Ultimate Holiday Playlist!

Laughing and telling stories around a crackling fire with loved ones.  Trudging through powdery snow, your nose pink from the cold.  Warm drinks at the neighborhood bar. Dancing under strings of twinkling lights.  Whatever your favorite holiday memory is, there is a song to go with it… music takes a moment and turns it into magic. We want you to help us put together a holiday playlist full of all your most magical moments – here’s how:

Tweet your submission @freepeople with the hashtag #fpholidayplaylist. We’ll compile your submissions and share the playlist a week from today!

My submission: “Golden” by My Morning Jacket. This song captures the feeling of nostalgia present during the holidays so perfectly for me.

I can’t wait to see your submissions!

  1. Willie Nelson’s “Christmas Blues” is lovely and so very mellow. Sweet and a little sad. Just like Christmas.

  2. -somewhere only we know- Lily Allen
    -snow in California- Ariana Grande

    Or any old, retro Christmas song. So excited for this playlist!

  3. It’s Christmastime again by Peggy Lee is great and, and May Everyday be Christmas is a beautiful reminder to keep the warmth of Christmas all year long. Love it. And the entire What a Wonderful Christmas album by Louis Armstrong
