Christmas Music Playlists: Indie, Rock, R&B and Chill

I love Christmas music, and I have been building my main playlist for years. It’s now nearly 375 songs or almost 22 hours. For 2017, I promise to get it over a day’s worth!

For 2016, I spent some time splitting out the styles, so now I have an “Upbeat Christmas” and a “Pretty Christmas” playlist.

I was joking on Twitter that I put a lot of artists in my Christmas playlists that I don’t normally listen to – but I draw the line at Jimmy Buffett. Besides him, who am I missing? Continue reading…

Photos from Denver Zombie Crawl 2016 – Creepy Fun on 16th Street Mall

It’s that time of year again! We are close to Halloween, which means Zombie Crawl takes over Denver’s 16th Street Mall with some really outrageously creepy costumes. Given the state of our election, I expected an onslaught of Trumps, but only saw a few and they always had a Hillary on their arm. The zombie zeitgeist this year was full-on Day of the Dead, with multiple examples up and down the mall.

It’s the 11th anniversary of Denver Zombie Crawl and this year it also fell squarely on founder Danny Newman‘s birthday. Personally, I can’t think of a better present than tens of thousands of costumed creatures taking over downtown.

Best Christmas Music Playlist Ever! (300+ Songs)

Many people know I just moved to Spotify from Rdio, and imported a ton of playlists on the way. I have been cultivating my Christmas music for years now, so I was glad to see almost all the songs came over and I’ve spent the past few weeks polishing it up and adding new tunes from 2015. Clearly, I love the holidays, and holiday music!

I am not bashful about how much I love my holiday music playlist, either.

Win a $150 Gift Certificate for Zazzle Holiday Photo Cards!

I say this all the time… but Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday. It’s all about love and food, two of the best things in the world. And there used to be a time when I spent a big chunk of the long weekend addressing our Christmas cards and getting them ready to mail. I fell off that tradition over the past few years, but Zazzle is helping me get my mojo back.

Have you heard of Zazzle? In general, they allow you to created personalized gifts from photos. Specifically, they have really lovely options for holiday cards. They have given me $150 to spend at their store and actually get some cards out this year. My mother will be utterly thrilled.
