Sam: Chrismas Carols with a Quirk

That special time of year has finally come around. Comm Ave. feels like an icy wind tunnel, holiday decorations are popping up around the city and Christmas music is constantly playing no matter where you go.

No offense, card-carrying carolers, but listening to the same tunes every year drives me totally bonkers. If you’re like me and want a change, you’re in luck! Below is a playlist you can jam out to all season long.

(Full disclosure: Sam is 100 percent Jewish, just really likes warm n’ fuzzy tunes)
