Staff Picks: Susan’s Twelve Non-Traditional Songs of Christmas

To close out 2013, we asked library staff members to write lists–of anything they want. Today we feature Susan Wardzala’s twelve non-traditional songs of Christmas.

Susan is a reference librarian and the subject specialist for Social Work and Criminal Justice at Lewis Library.


The winter holidays are full of family, friends and festivity, but they are full of the same songs, so add some new songs to your playlist that keep to the holiday spirit but add some zing.
