t’s beginning to look a lot like Christmasssss!! (2020 version of course!) With such a hectic year getting into the Christmas spirit might be the last thing (or first thing) on your mind. Either way, Christmas is a time to appreciate the little things, connect with your loved ones, and try to bring joy and happiness to what is otherwise a crazy time. While getting into the Christmas spirit can be rough with Corona, the one thing that will never fail to get us up and grooving is some good old fashioned Christmas songs! If you want to get into the spirit yourself and you’re looking for a great way to get your mind off of this interesting year. Here are 5 of the best Christmas songs to dance to!
1. Carol of the Bells by Candice Boyd
Starting off with a classic; this reimagined song is sung with spirit, soul and everything in between. The added element of a new beat drop adds dimension to the song. This added flavour will definitely make you excited to hear more! With already knowing and loving the original, this version by Candice Boyd makes it a great song to get into the groove of Christmas.
Added tip: great song to get everyone in the mood to start your Christmas decorations!

3. Last Christmas by Wham!
Once of my all-time favourites, this song brings back many memories of Christmas shopping and lots of hot cocoa! If you would like to jam to some throwback songs, Last Christmas by Wham! will definitely get you feeling nostalgic and fill your heart up with memories of loved ones, friends, and of course your furry friends!

4. Mistletoe By Justin Bieber.
Now I’m not going to lie, this is a guilty pleasure of mine. When Justin came out with this song in 2011, it was definitely on repeat ahaha. Needless to say, this song is really cute and will make you smile from ear to ear! Grab your significant other, your mother, or your best friend and jam to this song like it was 2011 again! Trust me you will have the time of your life!

5. All I Want for Christmas is You by Mariah Carey
And last but certainly not least, probably the most iconic Christmas song of all time, All I want for Christmas is You by Mariah Carey. This song is a Christmas staple and the second you hear her opening vocal you already know this song is going to be danced to! If you really want to amp up a party (always keeping it corona safe of course) even if it’s just you and your doggo in your living room, this song will get everyone jamming and singing at the top of your lungs (including your dog ahah).

And there you have it! The best Christmas songs to dance to through this very interesting Christmas holiday! While Christmas is a time to spend with loved ones and appreciate everything you have. 2020 has definitely challenged us this year. And while some of us are blessed to be able to spend the holiday with our loved ones, it might not be the same for others. So take the time to appreciate the little things in life, spend time with your loved ones in a safe way, through facetime, or phone calls if you cannot see them in person and help others when they need it. At STU Arts we believe that the safety of others should always be a priority so they can enjoy everything we have to offer! We wish you a warm holiday season and hope this can brighten up your day a little through what is otherwise a crazy year.
