Once you start hearing Christmas songs in the malls, on the radio, and even in the privacy of your own head, you know that the festive season has begun. And though it feels like it begins earlier and earlier each year, it’s actually right after Thanksgiving that merchants and disc jockeys flip through their record collection, blow off the dust from the ones that had been sitting on the highest shelf all year, and joyfully bring back the earworms to create a merry atmosphere to your day. As you’re about to see, it isn’t just the last millennia whose holiday seasons were marked by carols and cheerful ditties. One of the oldest specimens of Christmas songs on our list has its roots hidden somewhere in the 16th century, with the newest addition being that of the sweet-voiced Mariah in 1994. From jazzy arrangement to prog-rock and even metal, there’s truly a festive song for anyone’s taste.
Still not sure about our last statement? Well, then grab a mug of hot toddy, curl up in front of a merrily crackling fireplace (or play a video of a fireplace on your screen), open up a music streaming platform of your preference, and check each mirthful submission on our list! Some of these festive songs will remind you of your childhood Christmases, others will be new to your ears, but they are all guaranteed to make you feel that festive spirit stronger than ever. Don’t forget to tell us which of these carols pluck at your heartstrings the strongest, and don’t forget to share this article with your friends. Even the Grinch himself would have a change of heart after listening to these joyous Christmas songs.
