Do: Shake Up the Classics

There could never be anything wrong with listening to Bing Crosby sing "The Christmas Song" for the rest of our days. But variety is the spice of life, and if you're really just chomping at the bit for the opportunity to show off your excellent, eclectic taste, this is it. Pretty much everyone you can think of who's ever touched a musical instrument has put out a Christmas album for extra cash at some point, so go nuts. Or, you know, just crib from our foolproof L Magazine holiday playlist. Whichever.

Don't: Blindly Trust Novelty

Did I ever tell you about the time I picked up that Yuletide Disco album on a whim? Nightmarish. Vet your music wisely.
