their parents play in the car. Kids enjoy making silly dances up, doing karaoke using the Christmas songs, and even changing around a few of the songs to make them funny, especially Rudolph the Red nosed reindeer or Frosty the Snowman. Everything from the Christmas trees with all the lights, Christmas decorations, Santa’s helpers, Christmas desserts, up to Santa Claus himself fascinates every young child today. A child may not comprehend the full meaning of Christmas, but the smile on their own face when they hear a Christmas song or see Santa Claus is priceless.

Religious Christmas Songs

Christmas is the most sacred of Christian holidays. People who don’t attend church at every other time of year are often seen gracing the pews on Christmas Eve. Some of the greatest music ever written can be found in the lyrics and arrangements of songs like, “Silent Night,” “O Holy Night,” and “Hark the Herald Angels Sing.” Songs such as these bring out the spiritual feelings that unfortunately lie dormant for much of the year. Religious songs tell stories such as, “We Three Kings” and “Oh, Little Town of Bethlehem.” They remind us of the reason for the season.

Mainstream Christmas Songs

For those stores that wish to keep Christmas music non-secular, there are plenty of great songs to put shoppers in the mood to spend a couple bucks during the next fourteen days. Everything from “Jingle Bells,” “Sleigh Ride,” “Winter Wonderland,” “Let It Snow,” “Rudolph, The Red Nosed Reindeer,” to “Santa Claus is Comin’ to Town.” These songs also fill a vital role in getting folks in the Christmas Spirit. While not religious songs, they are songs about being together, about being nearer to each other. “The Christmas Song,” and “White Christmas” are timeless classics. They’re the songs we sing together in a car as a family on the way to Grandma’s house on Christmas Day.

Deck the Hall

This perennial favorite dates all the way back to the 16th century, with some help from Mozart in the 18th century.
Deck the hall with boughs of holly
Fa la la la la, la la la la
‘Tis the season to be jolly
Fa la la la la, la la la la
Don we now our gay apparel
Fa la la, la la la, la la la
Troll the ancient yuletide carol
Fa la la la la, la la la la
See the blazing yule before us
Fa la la la la, la la la la
Strike the harp and join the chorus
Fa la la la la, la la la la
Follow me in merry measure
Fa la la, la la la, la la la
While I tell of yuletide treasure
Fa la la la la, la la la la
Fast away the old year passes
Fa la la la la, la la la la
Hail the new, ye lads and lasses
Fa la la la la, la la la la
Sing we joyous, all together
Fa la la, la la la, la la la
Heedless of the wind and weather
Fa la la la la, la la la la

Jingle Bells

This particular song has a catchy tune and the chorus is easy to learn. This is one of the first songs taught to children at a very early age.

Dashing through the snow
In a one horse open sleigh
O’er the fields we go
Laughing all the way
Bells on bob tails ring
Making spirits bright
What fun it is to laugh and sing
A sleighing song tonight
Oh, jingle bells, jingle bells
Jingle all the way
Oh, what fun it is to ride
In a one horse open sleigh
Jingle bells, jingle bells
Jingle all the way
Oh, what fun it is to ride
In a one horse open sleigh
A day or two ago
I thought I’d take a ride
And soon Miss Fanny Bright
Was seated by my side
The horse was lean and lank
Misfortune seemed his lot
He got into a drifted bank
And we, we got upsot
Oh, jingle bells, jingle bells
Jingle all the way
Oh, what fun it is to ride
In a one horse open sleigh
Jingle bells, jingle bells
Jingle all the way
Oh, what fun it is to ride
In a one horse open sleigh yeah
Jingle bells, jingle bells
Jingle all the way
Oh, what fun it is to ride
In a one horse open sleigh
Jingle bells, jingle bells
Jingle all the way
Oh, what fun it is to ride
In a one horse open sleigh
