As the year winds down, things slow down at the office especially for those unfortunate souls who didn’t bank enough vacation days to take time off before Christmas and between Christmas and New Year’s Day. That leads to conversations outside of our normal construction industry-related banter.


 


A few of the editors from some of your favorite Benjamin Media Inc. publications started discussing our favorite holiday songs and a playlist was born. Not a group known for keeping things to ourselves, and in the spirit of giving that the holiday season is all about, we wanted to share the list with you.


Some are old, some are new and some are just plain funny. As one of our esteemed colleagues noted, “We’ve put together quite an eclectic mix!”


Presented in no particular order are our favorite holiday songs to add to your party playlists. As the holiday approaches, kickback with your favorite seasonal brew, a spiked eggnog or hot cocoa if that’s your thing, wrap some gifts and give this playlist a spin.
