Find the best Christmas songs this year
One of the best ways to celebrate the holiday season is to sing Christmas songs. Regardless of your singing ability, belting out a good old Christmas tune is one of the best ways to spread holiday cheer.
Nothing lights up the eyes of a child like a funny children's Christmas song. Here are some songs you might want to introduce your kids to this season:
- "I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus"
- "All I Want for Christmas Is My Two Front Teeth"
- "Rudolph, the Red-Nosed Reindeer"
- "Jingle Bell Rock"
- "Jolly Old Saint Nicholas"
- "(I'm Gettin') Nuttin' for Christmas"
But don't forget about the range of equally entertaining traditional Christmas songs. Next time you're in the mood for some Christmas music, try the following familiar tunes:
- "Joy to the World"
- "Do You Hear What I Hear?"
- "O Come, All Ye Faithful"
- "Little Drummer Boy"
- "Angels We Have Heard on High"
Christmas Song Lyrics
The Internet is a great way to look up Christmas song lyrics. You can also check out sheet music from a bookstore, library or your local music store. Be sure to check out copyright restrictions before making any copies. If you want to skip purchasing CDs, try to stream free Christmas songs online. You could also look into trading CDs online. The Internet is also a good resource if you want to (legally) download Christmas songs.
Christmas Concerts and Caroling
The holiday season provides a great opportunity for you to take in concerts. Check out community message boards for local and affordable performances. But rather than just sitting back and listening to Christmas music, why not try a new approach to holiday music? Maybe you could organize a sing-song at your house. Invite friends and family and have them bring lists of their favorite songs. Ask any musicians you know to bring along their instruments. You could even turn it into a potluck event and serve up some tasty Christmas cookies. Or, perhaps you could organize caroling in your neighborhood. While you're at it, you could collect food for your local food bank, or contact a local nursing home to see if you could perform for the residents.
Singing Christmas songs also gives you the opportunity to teach your children about the real meaning of the holidays. This exercise provides a fun and entertaining occasion to teach your children important moral lessons. The holiday season is a great time to celebrate the simpler gifts in life: family, friends, and of course, music.
