Everyone’s favourite festive tradition has just started. No, it’s not carol singing or mince pies, but Spotify Wrapped. Take a deep dive back through your favourite tracks and artists of the year and answer the question – does Spotify Wrapped include December?

Because if so, well, let’s just say most of our stats will be looking very Christmassy in 2021…

What is Spotify Wrapped?

Spotify Wrapped is a round up of your listening habits throughout the year, based on data collected by Spotify.

This includes: how many minutes you’ve listened to Spotify, your top five artists and songs, if you’re a top listener for any artists, and your top genres and decades.

You can see your Spotify Wrapped here by logging into your Spotify account. You can also access it by searching wrapped on your Spotify mobile app and it will present to you your Top Songs of 2020. The page also suggests new songs for you through the playlist Missed Hits, as well as podcasts of your favourite music artists called On Record.

The page also examines the top tracks, podcast and artists in your country, as well as worldwide. You can take a closer look at the worldwide data here.

But does Spotify Wrapped include December?

According to this community post previously answered by Spotify, wrapped data only counts from January 1st to Oct 31st.

This means that November and December are somewhat of a music wilderness. You could listen to some of your more embarrassing tracks and it shouldn’t upset your Wrapped algorithm. Maybe get that High School Musical playlist on? Or that classical music you’ve been hiding from your friends?

Many Twitter users have been thinking about how best to start their new Spotify Wrapped for 2021 and have been confused about what months count in the Spotify data.

The good news is that you can listen to Christmas music to your heart’s content this festive season and it won’t affect your overall Spotify Wrapped in 2021.

Many Twitter reactions have also shown the love for Spotify Wrapped as a definitive part of their festive period.
