December is the time when everything slowly comes to a close. You worked hard throughout the year and now it's time to chill.
We wanted to make this time extra special, so we give you a new way to think about the all-time holiday favorites.

All I Want For Christmas Is You by Mariah Carrey

🎶 I don't want a lot for Christmas

There's just one thing I need

I don't care about the presents

Underneath the Christmas tree🎶

Of course there is just one thing you need, and Christmas is no exception. All you want is that paycheck for the hard freelancing work you did.


It's The Most Wonderful Time Of The Year by Andy Williams

🎶 It's the most wonderful time of the year

With the kids jingle belling

And everyone telling you be of good cheer

It's the most wonderful time of the year 🎶

You are done with 100 Christmas-themed projects and you can finally relax. Being of good cheer has never been easier because you can take some time off and enjoy the holidays.


Let It Snow by Dean Martin

🎶 Oh, the weather outside is frightful

But the fire is so delightful

And since we've no place to go

Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow 🎶

As a freelancer, you don't need to trudge the snow to reach the office every day. You work from home and enjoy the winter scenery from the comfort of your home.


Silent Night by Frank Sinatra

🎶 Silent night, holy night

All is calm, all is bright 🎶

Like many freelancers, you are probably most productive at night, when everything is quiet. You get to sit down and produce great work, free of distractions.


Santa Tell Me by Ariana Grande

🎶 Santa tell me if you're really there

Don't make me fall in love again

If he won't be here next year

Santa tell me if he really cares

'Cause I can give it all away if he won't be here next year 🎶

That awful feeling when you really like your client but he tells you there is only one project he needs. All of us freelancers really hope for is a client we get to continue working with.


We hope you liked our mini freelancer Christmas playlist. If you have another song in mind, let us know below and spread the love. From everyone here at Deel, we wish your next year is even more productive and fruitful.

Happy holidays!
