Who doesn’t love December? I’ve yet to meet a person who doesn’t have a reason to look forward to this awesome month. For many folks, December is the one month they look forward to the most—and I can’t blame them. I have my own reasons for loving December, and baking cookies every day ranks at the top. I love me some cookies!

No wonder many people put on a few extra pounds between all the celebrations that happen in December. But it never hurts to indulge yourself a little bit. After all, you’d put “exercise daily” on your New Year’s resolutions list, right? We both know you’d probably forget about it sooner than later.

But something that will stick with you for a long time are the countless songs about December. You probably haven’t given any thought about this, but so many songwriters have written songs that have to do with December in one way or another. Some sound obvious as they have the word December in the title. Others, however, might not be readily apparent, especially if you don’t pay much attention to the lyrics.
