If you’re an introvert (or just a human in general), the holiday season can be a mixed bag of feels. Winter weather forces things to be quiet and calmer; twinkle lights and candles make it a perfect time for some energy-fueling introspection. At the same time, it’s one of the busiest social seasons of the year: a wonderful chance to spend time with your friends and family.
Still, I find that my favorite Christmas music is, in general, on the sadder end of things. It’s a fun, happy season, but for a lot of people, for many reasons, it can be sad, too. So here’s my contribution to the neverending pile of Christmas playlists. It’s got a whole lot of sad bastard interspersed with some pop and, of course, a sprinkle of wrock.
