Favorite Christmas Songs

I love Christmas music! It pretty much dominates my playlist from the week of Thanksgiving until the end of December. I remember growing up listening to old Christmas records on our stereo in the playroom of our house. We would sit on the floor looking through the J.C. Penny’s Christmas catalog for ideas for Christmas presents while listening to the Christmas classics. Things felt so much simpler back then. 

As we hit December 1st, I thought I would share my top 10 favorite Christmas songs. Please note these are not in any order, as it was difficult enough just picking the top 10. And while there are so many newer Christmas songs that are excellent, there is just something about the oldies. (Also note…I didn’t include any Christmas hymns, as I could do another list of just those songs.)

  1. “White Christmas” – Bing Crosby
  2. “Christmas Time Is Here” – Vince Guaraldi Trio
  3. “Holly Jolly Christmas” – Burl Ives
  4. “Sleigh Ride” – Boston Pops Orchestra
  5. “Rocking Around The Christmas Tree” – Brenda Lee
  6. “The Christmas Song” – Nat “King” Cole
  7. “It’s The Most Wonderful Time Of The Year” – Andy Williams
  8. “Little Saint Nick” – The Beach Boys
  9. “Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas” – Frank Sinatra
  10. “You’re A Mean One One, Mr. Grinch” – Thurl Ravenscroft
