One of the things I liked the most about spending time in New York in December were all the Christmas songs playing on the radio. It is something I really miss at this time of the year in Brazil, even though I have to admit that they would not have the same effect without the freezing weather and the snow covering the streets. For those of you who enjoy Christmas songs as much as I do, I compiled a selection of some of my favorite tracks.
