Mixtape: Holiday recovery

As the winter semester begins, we reminisce on the highs and lows of the winter break. Many returned home to visit family and friends for the holidays, others stayed behind and embraced life in Montreal. What we all have in common is a shared experience of the holidays in its many forms, the thumping excitement of the yuletide festivities and the sobering mornings that follow.

Compiled is a playlist to reflect that duality of the season. Side A : “Can I Get a Yule-Yeah!” for the energy and chaotic blur of the holidays, and Side B: “Thoroughly Roasted By An Open Fire” for those lonely hangover days that inevitably follow.
