Christmas isn't complete without music, but Mariah Carey isn't for everyone. Here are some alternative Christmas anthems to rock out to.

If you're a regular person, welcome to Christmas season! If you're a content marketer, welcome to month five of Christmas.

We get it, after campaign planning back in July, promotion beginning by September, and new year preparations already in full swing, you're probably completely over the C-word by now and have zero desire to watch the John Lewis advert. We've all been there.

So, to keep your spirits high in what can be a completely underwhelming time of year for those in marketing, we've invented the alternative Christmas. 12 whole days of alternative Christmas content to spread some anti-festive cheer.

And with Mariah Carey coming out of hibernation to take pride of place on every playlist, there's no better time to release our alternative Christmas anthems, packed with songs that have no reference to Michael Bublé.

Don't forget to save the full Spotify playlist for the run-up to the big day when things all get a bit much):

Let's take a dive into some of the best hits...
