Christmas Songs: Cheery Holiday Music
Time to deck the halls once again!
Can you feel it in the air!? The smell of freshly cut pine boughs... warm cookies just out of the oven and the sound of snow lightly falling... and... hmm, something is missing... CHRISTMAS MUSIC!
As soon as Thanksgiving is over, it is officially Christmas time in my family... and the very first thing we do is dig around for all of our favorite holiday tunes. Here are some all time favorite Christmas songs to help you gear up for the holiday season.
The songs have been divided up into 3 categories:
- Religious - hymns, carols, songs typically heard in church
- Secular - can be heard on the radio around Christmas time
- Cheery Christmas Songs - upbeat, favorites of children
In recent studies, some Christmas songs have shown to cause:
- Spontaneous singing and, in rare cases, dancing among those who participated.
- Long-term use of some Christmas songs can cause the song in question to become lodged in the mind.
- Christmas songs can be extremely contagious and be passed to others within a close proximity.
