Blogmas #19: Alternative Christmas Playlist!

Aloha my wonderful merfolk!

Today I thought I would bring you a collection of alternative Christmas songs, in case you are simply fed up of all the traditional stuff we hear every year!

I had help from my wonderful housemate with this playlist as I originally only knew of a couple of songs that could be classed as alternative. There are also a few songs on this list that aren’t alternative in a genre sense, but just so different that they couldn’t be classed as traditional. Not all of these songs I personally enjoy however, I have put them on the playlist because others might.

So here it goes:
