Holiday Love Songs For After Reaching Your Mariah Listening Limit

Christmas playlist

If you couldn’t tell from StoryLove’s previous playlist, “Wedding Reception Songs Your Guests Aren't Tired of Hearing,” I’m not someone who enjoys listening to the same song on repeat. Sometime around 2015, I reached my quota on how many times I could listen to what is arguably the greatest Christmas song of all time, Mariah Carey’s “All I Want For Christmas Is You.” It’s a fantastic tune and an A+ love song, but even with the 11-month break, I can only hear it a few times each season without wanting to put on something else.

So, this year, I’ve put together a list of non-Mariah holiday songs that still celebrate, what else, the love between two people. I firmly believe December festivities beat Valentine’s Day when it comes to romance. All the magic of the year-end paired with cozy days of winter makes coupling up all the more appealing.
