Top 11 Christmas Carols

Take a journey through some of the top Christmas carols, and maybe add a few to your yearly list of songs to listen to this upcoming season.

#1 Jingle Bells

There may not be a carol more recognizable than "Jingle Bells." One of the most fun things that almost always seems to happen when singing this song is a competition as to who can shout "HEY" loudest at the end of the line "oh what fun it is to ride in a one hose open sleigh." With each chorus, the shouting gets louder and louder.

#2 Silent Night

One of the slower Christmas carols sung around this time of year, "Silent Night" reminds us all of the peace and calm that this season can bring. This song helps to reinforce the ideas of what is truly important and encompasses an idea of togetherness and simplicity that cannot be matched.

#4 Frosty the Snowman

Not only is "Frosty the Snowman" a great Christmas carol, but it is a classic Christmas movie that came out in the late 60's. Everyone was always so sad to think that one day Frosty the Snowman would melt, but as the song even states he would "be back again someday."

#5 Santa Claus is Coming to Town

What a thought it is to think that Santa Claus is always watching you. As a child, this song definitely makes you rethink every move you make in fear that Santa Claus might see what you have done and put you on the naughty list. Although it does bring with it some scary connotations, it is too catchy of a tune not to sing around this time of year.

#6 Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer

I think it is safe to say almost everyone remembers singing this carol around Christmas time and interjecting different phrases into the song, such as "LIKE LINCOLN", or "LIKE MONOPOLY!" One of the classic interjections during the song would be, "and if you ever saw it you would even say it glows....LIKE A LIGHT-BULB!"

#7 Hark! The Herald Angels Sing

Although most people only know and sing the first verse of this carol, "Hark! The Herald Angels Sing" has five verses in total. Something fun to do this year would be to learn another verse of this carol and surprise the family by continuing singing when everyone else stops.

#9 O Christmas Tree

One of the most anticipated activities to do around the Christmas season is to put up and decorate the Christmas tree. So, it only makes sense that there would be a carol in regards to this long-awaited, holiday tradition. I think it only makes sense that during the decorating of the Christmas tree this year, this carol be sung in conjunction to make the most of this holiday experience.

This may be one of the most unique carols to be sung around this time of year.

#11 The Little Drummer Boy

The story that this carol tells is destined to pull on the heartstrings of all that hear it. The Little Drummer Boy is of poor means but still wants to give like everyone else, even if it is only through his music. This idea of complete and total giving of all that one has embodies the spirit of the Christmas season and makes this song a must-hear for this time of year.
