Best Childrens Christmas Carols

Updated on November 30, 2014

Traditional Christmas Carols For Children

What are the best children's Christmas carols? Best traditional Christmas Carols for kids deserve a page of their own. What do children love to sing at Christmas? Here you will find the very best Christmas Carols for children. Old favorites and new carols too.

The whole business of Santa and Rudolf - lovely as it is - has assumed the status of religion in this secular world. This was the reason I chose to do a separate page for children's Christmas carols. Christmas can be bewildering for children, especially those not brought up as Christians. Out there is a whole beautiful world of song which does not depend on Mummy kissing Santa,or toothbrushes snuggling up to each other. Rudolf is more Disney than Divine and much as I dearly love Jingle Bells it was actually written for Thanksgiving, not Christmas. So here we go with a whole page devoted to Christmas hymns rather than Christmas party songs. Come Advent and I will be happily singing them!

Childrens Christmas Favourites - Songs and Carols for Kids to Enjoy

This music album selection has many traditional Christmas Carols and some favorite childrens Christmas songs.

Why just traditional Christmas songs?

What is wrong with modern Christmas songs.

The sort answer to that is - NOTHING! It is just that as a teacher I became aware that some children were become confused by what Christmas is really about. It kind of came to a head when I found out that a Hindu pupil didn't want to sing Jingle Bells before December in case of "bad luck" and thought that reindeer and trees were religious icons!

I am not some sort of evangelist - far from it - but I think we need to think about the message that gets through!

Best of Christmas Carols Books - A collection of favorite Christmas songs for various instruments

Well known carols in easy arrangements for voice, recorder and piano with guitar chords.

For many children, the first musical instrument is the recorder. This collection of Christmas carols for recorder will entertain children who love to play recorder.

Children's songs which are easier to read because of the big notes. Often children find grown up music books intimidating but big note carols encourage them to practise.

T'Is the Season To Be Jolly - Christmas - Secular or Sacred

Well, do you think the original message of Christmas has become confused by commercialism? Do you think the family fun aspects more important than the Christian message? Here is your chance to say!

Has the message of Christmas become lost?
