Christmas Songs to Get You in the Christmas Mood

Nothing puts me in the Christmas spirit, or a festive mood, quicker than listening to Christmas music. There are so many wonderful Christmas songs performed by a variety of talented artists. There are traditional carols as well as modern songs that are non-religious and centered around a celebration theme.

I thought it would be fun to assemble all my Christmas favorites and share them with you just in case you're wanting to get into the Christmas spirit.

When I sat down to begin this project, this list was going to include my top ten Christmas songs. I knew I'd be able to easily come up with ten.

I soon realized I couldn't limit it to just ten.

So, I decided to make it my top twenty list of favorite Christmas songs.

I found I couldn't do that either. There are just too many songs that I like and Christmas wouldn't be the same without hearing them at least once.

So, here is KCC's top 20+ Christmas songs.

Woot! I got here first. Love the Last Christmas song of Wham (sung it once in a singing contest :D) and All I Want for Christmas is You. There's another one - It's Christmas All Over the World Tonight (by Sheena Easton? don't know if I got the right title). This is a great list KCC. Thanks.

Wow! What a lot of good Christmas music. You really helped me on my way to getting in the mood. I wasn't even going to put a tree up. Bah Humbug! But I've changed my mind...making Christmas cookies today and putting up the tree the day after Thanksgiving. Thanks for being a Christmas angel.

Excellent list except the Bruce Springsteen one! I like his music but this one just drives me nuts and they play it every other song on the radio around here from November 1 to December 26!!!!

Great hub and loved the videos!

I've already started playing the Christmas music on my computer, in my defense though it's been 5 years since I was last able to celebrate Christmas.

Emievil: I'll have to look for Sheena Easton Christmas songs. I haven't thought about her in a long time. My 17 yr old daughter absolutely loves "Last Christmas" too. That was her first introduction to George Michael and Wham.

Alekhouse: I'm so glad I got you in the Christmas mood!

Resspenser: I think they overplay some of these songs too, and that can certainly get annoying. Glad you enjoyed the rest of the list.

Scott: This is certainly going to be a very special Christmas for you. May it be all you hope for and more. You deserve it.

Thanks to all of you for stopping by!
