It’s that time of year again where you’re stuck with relatives you wish you didn’t have to see, hometowns you’d rather forget, and old classmates that make your skin crawl. But luckily for you, music can always be a companion, and the music on this exclusive holiday playlist will definitely bring a smile to your face. The title is a bit misleading, because, excluding from maybe 1 (or 2?) songs, this playlist has fuck all to do with Christmas. They’re a handful of piano-driven songs, some love songs about longing for that special someone, and euphoric moments that beg you to forget about the world…so that’s close enough right?

This is the 405 Exchange Xmas Episode, enjoy.
