Non-traditional Christmas Songs

Source


Every year we hear the same Christmas carols and traditional songs. It's refreshing to hear music that helps us get into the spirit of the season without being repetitive. Here are some of my favorite non-traditional Christmas songs. Some of them are simply winter tunes, while others mention aspects of the holiday season. Enjoy!

A comforting winter song, White Winter Hymnal makes me want to stay inside in front of a roaring fire, drink coffee and read a good book.

Christmas (Baby Please Come Home) by Death Cab for Cutie


This song is like a modern traditional Christmas song and Death Cab for Cutie gives it a haunting, romantic feel.

The retro sounds of She & Him make this song a modern holiday classic.

Welcome to Our World by Chris Rice


This song is somewhat traditional, but it's not one of the classic Christmas carols sung every year. It is a reverent song that is a perfect closure to this playlist.
