I love eggnog. I know that grosses some of you out, but I’m a fan. Not eggnog flavored things, but the real thick Christmas eggnog. I only drink eggnog at the holidays, preferably with liquor. Even though I have been drinking eggnog my whole life (the liquor part is a recent addition, don’t worry), I always overserve myself and overdo the whole eggnog/holiday cheer thing. There is too much of a good thing, especially where dairy is concerned.

I feel the same way about Christmas music. Initially, I’m amped. I want all the songs—Mariah on repeat!!! Then I’m like, “Whoa this is insanity, and it’s still early December.” Again, there can be too much of a good thing. I have no solution for my eggnog problem aside from just drinking less but what’s the fun in that. 🙂 For holiday playlists I do have a solution:

My recipe for a solid holiday playlist

1/3 Christmas songs
1/3 songs you love from the past year
1/3 classic party jams

I feel STRONGLY about this recipe. It keeps your holiday parties from drifting into some weird holiday drama rom-com movie and keeps them light and lively. Also, it guarantees you will have some Drake on your playlist and everyone needs Drake at their holiday parties.

Happy holidays!

Jessica Blackstock moonlights as a deejay, during daylight hours she girlbosses over at Thrive Consulting Group.   Want more beats? Your Week Curated is another playlist I, well, curate. I add four newly released songs to the list every Monday.
