As we get closer to the day Santa fires up the sleigh, you can expect more artists to roll out renditions of their holiday favorites (or even some originals for the season).

It’s probably a good time to mention that we’re going to be on vacation next week. So, aside from this being the last new UMC20 playlist of the month, it’s the last update period until September. We’ll hit you with the best of August when we get back the day after Labor Day.
(Don’t worry, though. We’re cooking up some fun for you while we’re gone. More on that later in the week!)
