Christmas songs, for many people, are a touchy subject, I would say.
That might sound a little odd outright, but hear me out.
Christmas music is absolutely an essential component to the holiday, but I would argue a lot of us have mixed feelings about it depending on how early we start hearing these songs, and further, how often we’re hearing the same ones. I know I get a little irritated when radio stations begin playing Christmas songs before December even rolls around, and it also irks me a wee bit that a lot of stations tend to play the same ones on repeat, despite the fact there’s a shitload to pick from.
That’s just my stance on the matter.
There are, though, a few Christmas songs that I always look forward to hearing once that time of year presents itself, and I thought I might share them with you. Whether or not you care, or agree with me for that matter, is entirely up to you, but I’m going to tell you them anyways.
Without further adieu, some of my favourite Christmas tunes include:
- Run Run Rudolph (my preferred versions of this one are by Chuck Berry and Kelly Clarkson)
- O Holy Night (by either Mariah Carey or Homefree)
- Hark the Harold Angels Sing
- O Come All Ye Faithful
- Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree
- Do They Know Its Christmastime
- Jingle Bell Rock
Although I may get a little tired of Christmas songs by the time the holiday itself arrives, these songs are some of which I rarely get tired of. I believe them to be classics, as many others do, and they’re ones I always catch myself singing along to no matter who is singing them.
