One Big Holiday Vol. 7: Big’s Annual Holiday Playlist

Christmas music can be divisive, right?

Some of us just can’t wait to get into the holiday spirit—local radio stations included—and start listening to holiday tunes on the first chilly day in October. Others can do without all the audible Christmas cheer altogether.

But there’s one thing we can all agree on: It takes teamwork to put together an amazing holiday playlist.

That’s why our entire office has come together yet again for another edition of the One Big Holiday playlist! Each of our employees, from media and account services to content and creative, contributed one song for the cause, and we compiled them conveniently for you on Spotify.

And trust us, folks—this playlist has everything. Boy bands of old, pop stars of tomorrow, golden oldies, country crooners, holiday hip-hop, festive rock ‘n roll. If you like it, we got it.

Take a look below and see what each of us chose, then turn the volume up and press play. Happy Holidays, y’all!
