The Best Christmas Songs List: 50 Greatest Hits!

When we are decorating the house for Christmas, we like to play tunes to put us in the Holiday mood. I am kind of particular and only like certain versions in certain voices!  So, I have done the research for you to help you build your Christmas Songs list from my favorites below!

I spent hours looking for the best version of the best Christmas songs of all time!  I hope you enjoy them as much as I do… Merry Christmas!  As you flip through the list and the versions I prefer, I think it will be very obvious that I was a child of the 80s in the South. LOL!

  1. What a fun Christmas song roundup.

    I must say Hard Candy Christmas is one of my favorites. I have many memories of listening to her and Kenny Rogers as a little girl and their Christmas Special on TV. My grandmother loved them!

  2. Wow, so many different ones. I must admit, I’m a huge fan of Bing Crosby and Frank Sinatra, that’s what most of my carols are made up of…takes me back to my childhood before all of the pop christmas songs that are out now.
