Christmas Songs

Introduction:We get used to them being played or performed so many times during the Christmas holiday. They are staples and have stood the test of time on their beauty and meaning.........

    The Christmas Song

    Mel Torme wrote it and Nat King Cole made it famous. "Chestnuts roasting on an open fire.....Jack Frost nipping at your nose....Yuletide carols, being sung by a Choir and folks dressed up like Eskimos"

    This is not just a song, it's pure enchantment that most of us learned as children. Mr. Torme and Mr. Cole were native Chicagoans and being from there myself, we get a dose of winter that many don't and yet Christmas is so our time of the year. With this song, it personifies a happy and reflective mood....

    Deck the Halls

    "Deck the Halls with boughs of holly, fa lalalalalalalalala...tis the season to be jolly.... is great to be taught to young children. You feel the energy and the color and spirit that goes into such a season and it's a happy song to sing!

  • 03

    Let It Snow

    Oh the weather outside is frightful
    But inside it's so delightful
    And since we've no place to go
    Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow

    A cute little romantic song. Reminds you of a small cottage and two lovely people about to treck across the meadow back to their homes but hey, the snow can detain that a little while.....they're in love and it does not matter....

    Frosty the Snowman

    Frosty the Snowman
    Was a jolly happy soul
    With a corn cob pipe
    And a button nose
    And two eyes made out of coal

    This is such a fantasy song for young ones and brings back wonderful memories to the older people when they think of ole Frosty. Wouldn't it be nice if he really did dance and sing or didn't he?

  • 05

    Oh Holy Night

    Oh Holy Night
    The stars are brightly shining
    It is the night
    Of our dear Savior's birth....

    For those who celebrate the season of Christmas, this is such a profound and meaningful song on the birth of Christ, the whole reason for the season. It's sang in church, by roving choirs, within friendly gatherings and sort of seals the deal.....but there are so many more.

    Joyful list! Your list is a happy way to begin the day. Congratulations on the front page!

    A very well deserving list! My first list made the front page. I was thrilled! Enjoy being at the top. Congradulations!

    What a great list -- I love how all of the Christmas songs I grew up with are still cherished...

    Christmas songs are what remain intact for a magical tradition that is becoming more business! Good, good point

  • ListMaker 11/26/2010 Flag This Comment

    Christmas songs are always best served in front of a roaring fire when there's a snow storm outside. Love them. Nice list, Penelope and congrats on the front page. You deserve it.

  • JoannaPen 11/26/2010 Flag This Comment

    Congratulations on Front Page. This list has finally found my christmas mood! :O) Well Done xx

  • penelope7 11/26/2010 Flag This Comment

    This morning, when I logged in and out I could see a flicker of MY face and I wondered why. I had no idea my Christmas song list had made it to the front. I tend to be a little 'slow' sometimes :D I feel so proud and so thankful, really I do. Getting noticed this way is encouraging and happened at a very appropriate time: Thanksgiving!

    Stopping by to congratulate you on the well deserved front page spot, my friend! Wonderful list!

  • penelope7 10/31/2010 Flag This Comment

    I love your warm and wonderful response to this. How could I forget Silver Bells? The fact is that I didn't because it's one of my favorites and represents all that is luminous and beautiful about this time of year. There are so many for this delightful, cheery, warm and reflective time. Creating just five seems so unfair. :( Thanks again for your comments!

  • goodselfme 10/31/2010 Flag This Comment

    Nobody, in my opinion sang like Nate King Cole expecially the number 1 on your Listmy5. My list would be similar with Silver Bells on it too. Thank you for your list.

  • JoyceTeresaMann 10/31/2010 Flag This Comment

    A lovely list. Thank you!

  • ponchomeg 10/29/2010 Flag This Comment

    Great choices. There are so many great Christmas songs out there, that I bet it was hard to choose! I would say that O Holy Night and The Christmas Song would be on my Top 5 Christmas songs list too. I especially love performing O Holy Night during the holiday season. It brings a very special, warm feeling to my heart.

  • EmmaRileySutton 10/29/2010 Flag This Comment

    I love Christmas songs! My favorites are "Away in a Manager" and "Silver Bells." Thank you for helping to get me in the Christmas spirit early and for posting this on List My Five.

  • Jeanniemaries 10/29/2010 Flag This Comment

    That's a nice variety of choices! Music really adds to your Christmas celebration!
