My Top Christmas Songs

Christmas is so soon! I haven't felt in the spirit until maybe the last week or so. I think it was right around when I started actually buying presents and Amanda started wrapping. I was looking over last years posts and realized I hadn't done a post about my favorite Christmas songs. Since music is such a big part of my life, I want to talk about that.

In no particular order:
Dominick the Donkey - Lou Monte
I didn't believe this song existed when my mom told me about it a few years ago. I had to look it up, and then I immediately bought it on iTunes! This song is hilarious! I have this on my every day playlist, but I have to listen to it more as Christmas approaches.

Feliz Navidad - José Feliciano
I sang this for choir in elementary school and have loved it ever since. I'm not even Spanish, or any variation. I just love the song. It's so upbeat and does a great job getting me in the Christmas spirit.

Mary Did You Know? - Pentatonix
This wasn't originally by them, and it might not be a "Christmas" song. I just love their rendition and it always puts me in the Christmas mood. Plus it was on their Christmas album so I'm adding it here.

Hallelujah - Kate Voegel 
This is also not technically "Christmas" music but I don't care. I love this song. I like a lot of different versions, but the Kate Voegel one is the best.

Silent Night - Pentatonix
Is this a "Christmas" song? Maybe. I know there are a million versions but this is my favorite.

Maybe This Christmas - Shane Dawson
This is an original by Shane. I don't watch his YouTube videos often, but I love this song. *Warning* Language. This is not a kid-appropriate Christmas song! It's Shane Dawson after all.

This Christmas Life - Shane Dawson
This is also an original. The audio is fine, so if you want to download this, it's certainly kid friendly. It's the video that isn't kid friendly! But like I said, it's Shane Dawson lol.

Kidnap the Sandy Claws - The Nightmare Before Christmas
This is a song from the soundtrack of the movie. Not technically a "Christmas" song, but it's about Santa! And I consider the movie a Christmas movie.

Making Christmas - The Nightmare Before Christmas
This is a good song for Christmas, but I love the video. It's obviously a clip from the movie. I love how they show them "making Christmas" in Halloweentown and in Christmastown. The juxtaposition is great! Seriously a phenomenal movie.

That's my list of the best Christmas songs. What do you think of the songs? Did you know or love any of them already? Did I show you a new awesome song? Let's chat in the comments!


  1. I didn't know Shane Dawson did music. I'm friends with his cousin, ha. I'm not sure if that's something I dare watch!

    1. Haha yeah, he has a few songs. The videos aren't too terrible, just not appropriate for kids, lol.
