Something to punctuate the Christmas evening by matching the background music with the highlights of this festive moment.
The Christmas aperitif playlist
The aperitif marks the start of Christmas Eve and therefore of the actual evening festivities. It is also the moment that generally marks the reunion of the various guests and the arrival sometimes a little later of some. It is therefore advisable to make a gentle introduction by providing a soft and cozy atmosphere. There’s nothing like choosing Christmas carols in the background, sung by the warm timbre of Elvis Presley singing his Blue Christmasor by the captivating crooner voice of Michael Bublé taking up tunes as traditional as let it snow Where White Christmas. The volume remains reasonable to give pride of place to conversations. A gentle introduction to pleasantly put the guests in the atmosphere of the Christmas party.
The Christmas dinner playlist
It can also be very pleasant to accompany the entire Christmas Eve meal with background music, taking care, however, not to always turn the volume up too high. The guests must indeed be able to discuss and exchange quietly without their words being drowned out by the music or they being forced to speak too loudly. The Christmas Eve meal therefore deserves a Christmas playlist that unrolls the greatest traditional classics of the end of the year celebrations. Here again, we opt for soft and suave voices like that of Frank Sinatra singing Have yourself a merry little christmas or, for a slightly more rhythmic touch, John Lennon and his Happy xmas war is over. Guests will be able to enjoy their festive meal while enjoying a warm atmosphere that will delicately envelop them in the Christmas spirit.
The Christmas party playlist
The moment of the Christmas dessert, which traditionally takes the form of a delicious log, is also that of the end of the New Year’s Eve meal and the beginning of the evening which follows it. In many families, it is also the long-awaited moment reserved for the opening of Christmas presents. The festive atmosphere therefore reaches its peak, especially if you have children who still believe in Santa Claus. The latter have indeed waited throughout the meal, waiting to discover the surprises that await them at the foot of the Christmas tree. The music will then be more catchy, and the volume can also be increased. While the traditional Small Santa by Tino Rossi can be sung with the family to precede the unwrapping of the presents, more rhythmic Christmas tunes will follow. It is therefore impossible to ignore the very famous All i want for christmas is you sung by Mariah Carey, or the no less famous Last Christmas of George Michael at the time of the Wham group or Santa Claus is coming to town of Bruce Springsteen, without forgetting the Jingle Bell Rock by Bobby Helms. These songs are indeed inseparable from Christmas celebrations and a successful Christmas playlist. These Christmas songs invite guests to sing along and sway their hips in your living room. The perfect Christmas playlist for a friendly and festive Christmas Eve.
