As the Thanksgiving season comes to a close, December brings holiday spirit and holiday tunes.

The Webb Canyon Chronicle has set out to make the ultimate holiday playlist for you by compiling a few students’ and faculty members’ favorite songs.

Members of the Webb community celebrate Christmas, Hanukkah, New Year’s Eve, and more. 

Aliza Tyndale (‘21) said, “Christmas is about getting together with all your family and embracing the love, which you usually do not get to do.”

Caleb Novak (‘22) said, “Hanukkah is a time to be very thankful. Christmas is more of just having a good time with my family.”

Melissa Mani, Library Assistant, said, “I listen to [Muslim] holiday songs because they uplift my spirit.”

With this playlist, the Webb Canyon Chronicle team hopes that you will enjoy the holiday season all the more. Perhaps when you roam the dorm hallways and hear the playlist playing, it will spark hope in you to power through and celebrate the end of the semester.
