Rupe 2019 Christmas Playlist

Music christmas playlist
Published: Dec 15 2019

The 10th Christmas playlist. I made the first one by myself. Erin’s helped me with all the rest. And I’ll share a few photos from the year while I’m at it.

This year’s CD felt like a bit more of a struggle. We could not find a lot of good Christmas music that came out this year. So we ended up turning to some older songs.

My original goal was to make 10 Christmas playlists. Put all 10 playlists together and it’s over 11 hours of music. I’m planning on continuing to this annual tradition, but I might drop my requirement of having all new songs each year (though there’s still some debate between Erin and I on this).

We also realize that CD players are things that most people only have in their cars now a days and we want people to be able to enjoy this music in whatever way it’s convenient. You can also listen to the playlist at the following places (note, that most streaming services only have some of the songs):
