While at work the other day, I couldn't stop staring at this big, red chair on the set. It reminded me so much of my childhood. Every Christmas we would visit Santa, sit on his lap and make our Christmas wish. I used to always wish for toys but nowadays my wish is to make sure my family is happy, healthy and together ❤️ We don't do much decorating now but one thing that we'll always have is music. My mom would always blast the Christmas songs first thing in morning. My mom is working in the US now so I'm the one that does all the music blasting now 😂 I've saved all my go-to Holiday Hub playlists on Spotify. I love the classic Christmas songs during the day from the Country Christmas playlist and just listening to some instrumentals at night from either the Christmas Peaceful Piano playlist or Instrumental Christmas Hymns. What are the Holiday Hub playlists that you always go back to? 🎄 #workingwithspotify
