Whenever I think of Christmas, pine needles, colorful lights, and hot cocoa by the fireplace always come to mind. Plopping my happy butt down on the couch to watch Jim Carrey as the Grinch is a tradition of mine, as well as watching the Christmas clay-mations and cartoons. One major thing that makes Christmas as special as it is, is the music. My favorite music to play during this holiday are songs from the amazing show, “Glee”! I’ve put together a small list of their best Christmas covers, including some by the late Cory Monteith... Get these on your Holiday playlists asap!


1. Volume 3: "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas"

Evil yet big-hearted Coach Sylvester (Jane Lynch) saves Christmas for one of the Glee kids, Marley (Melissa Benoist). She thanks the coach by singing a beautiful rendition of this song! The video shows the "Glee" cast spreading love and Christmas joy throughout their families and a local restaurant. Adorbs.




2. Volume 1: "Merry Christmas Darling"

I’m totally a Finchel fan, and Rachel (Lea Michele) sings this song so beautifully. In this season, Rachel keeps breaking Finn’s trust and he’s not ready to forgive her yet! He walks off the stage, and she’s left to sing this song alone in a Winter Wonderland.




3. Volume 1: "Baby it’s Cold Outside"

One of Glee’s power couples takes on this (sometimes controversial) song and kills it. Kurt (Chris Colfer), the first openly gay character on the show, and his boyfriend Blaine (Darren Criss), are seriously the cutest ever, especially in this scene.




4. Volume 1: "Last Christmas"
My absolute favorite!!! I live for the dramatics when I watch TV shows, and the Finchel drama continues throughout this cover. Again, Rachel tries to fight for Finn’s love while they shop for Christmas trees. On repeat. Obsessed.
Happy Holidays, Young Hollywood fans! May they be merry and jolly!
