You are walking down the streets. It’s a few days past Thanksgiving. December. Christmas is coming, you can see it everywhere. The shops have put out Christmas trees with beautiful ornaments and decoration. On a street corner, you spot an elderly man in a red cloak and with a white beard. It’s Santa, and he wishes you happy holidays. The scent of gingerbread men and Christmas baking, cinnamon, and baked apples is in the air…
Christmas is the most colorful and joyful holiday of the year. It’s a time spent with those you love, your family and friends, a time of contemplation and peace. But Christmas is also the time to thank the people around you with little presents and make their days worthwhile. Christmas Eve is not quite there yet, however, but that doesn’t mean that you can’t find some tranquility in preparations! Wrap your presents, do your Christmas shopping in time, and start baking Christmas cookies!
Great Background Music For Your Christmas Baking
Baking is a nice and calming task, even though you do have to pay some attention to the right timing and the oven clock. And it’s best done in company! Grab your children or siblings or invite your best friend over and bring out the baking supplies!
For this task, we have some nice background sounds that will not disturb your concentration, interrupt your conversations or adds to the radio or music playing just wonderfully.
Sounds of Christmas
What are the sounds you typically associate with Christmas?
- A howling snowstorm?
- The ringing of tiny sleigh bells?
- The happy chatter of a family gathering?
- Footsteps in the snow?
- Or a crackling fire?
Whatever ambient noise and background sounds you associate with Christmas, you can surely find some ambient atmospheres that get you in the right Christmas spirit here: Sounds of Christmas
You can either play an atmosphere with a Christmas tune from your laptop or mobile app or use the sounds of sleigh bells and soft wind to turn the music of your favorite CD into a festive soundtrack for your Christmas baking session. Just play the mix you like in the background.
Relaxing and Meditative Sounds
Finally, the Christmas shopping is done! You come home from a stressful shopping trip where you got the last presents and ingredients. But now, you have to start baking.
Don’t let the stress of the outside world affect your holiday spirit. Pour yourself a cup of hot chocolate — because we all know that chocolate can make you happy — and slip into comfortable clothes. Now, all you have to do is turn on some relaxing music and the baking chores will become a laid-back and calm activity.
Here are some nice examples:
- Soul Meditation (Tip: Mute channel 3 for a more calm atmosphere)
- Forest Getaway
- Transcendent Loop (Tip: Mute channel 6 to get rid of the occasional voice-over)
- Vivaldi and a Fireplace
- Hikari’s Garden
Rain, Fireplaces, and purring Cats
To many people, the sound of rain has a relaxing effect. The same is true for the crackling of a fire that can make you feel all homely. Add the purring of a cat and you have the perfect mix of a relaxing atmosphere.
Not everyone has an open fireplace at home and the weather is not always in your favor. Maybe you are also not allowed to have a cat, or you are allergic to them? All of this should not keep you from enjoying a rainy atmosphere!
