For this month’s Beekeeping mixtape, we had the pleasure of working with Jean-Philip Grobler of St. Lucia who put together one helluva holiday playlist.  The following words are from Jean-Philip:

“When I think of December, or the holidays, I think of feeling warm and fuzzy. I put this playlist together to reflect that, but also to reflect that little bit of melancholy that one can feel when thinking of the year that’s gone by. Patti and I love great Christmas music, and the cheese that goes along with feeling warm and fuzzy, so here it is in all its glory. There are a lot of Christmas classics, but also a lot of the songs that I discovered over the last 10 years or so that give me that warm and fuzzy, but also slightly wintery, feeling. Listen to it in order if you can.”
