Top Christmas Carols List For Your All Time Xmas Playlist

Christmas Carols List: One thing I can’t forget as a kid is the joy of hearing Christmas songs being played from my grandfathers stereo. The songs on the christmas playlist just had a way of telling me the world was to be enjoyed and lived in happily.

All of us grandkids spent Xmas at my granddad’s so it was always a house full of laughter, play, arguments and of course those blessed songs from his stereo. He had a stellar collection, these were popular Christmas songs and to this day I’m still looking for most of those songs.

But then I thought, why not re-enact that same feel in my own home? Give my family the best collection of Christmas carol songs.🎵

I’m still a bachelor so I spend most holidays with my older sister and her family. Her kids are wonderful.

This year, I’m picking over 120 all-time best Christmas songs, making them into a playlist and taking them with me to the house to give those kids some magical moments, and evoke some nostalgia in my older sis.

Ho ho ho, so here goes the best Christmas songs ever in the history of music. Forgive me, out of laziness, I couldn’t place direct links to the Christmas song titles, but I’m sure you’d manage to search them on Google

  1. Gotta say I’m a fan of whoever puts Bing Crosby’s White Christmas at the top of their list. I just did a blog post about that 2 days ago.

    But I did notice you only chose older songs, what about the newer artists like Pentatonix – Mary did you Know? Josh Groban – Silent Night (that one gives me all the feels!) and the Piano Guys just released an amazing CD with Ode to Joy & Joy to the World.
