Non-traditional Christmas Songs

Updated on June 27, 2015

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!

Keep Warm by Ingrid Michaelson

This is really just a winter song, but the lyrics are a good reminder to keep our loved ones close during the Christmas season.

I Celebrate the Day by Relient K

This song is my favorite, because it is all about the true meaning of Christmas.

White Winter Hymnal by Fleet Foxes

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.

Death Cab for Cutie

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.

She & Him

Christmas Wish by She & Him

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

A Fine Frenzy

Redribbon Foxes by A Fine Frenzy

This lilting tune is perfect to listen to while gazing at snowflakes falling from the sky.

'The Christmas Song' by Owl City

This is another one of my favorites, because it embodies the feelings of hope and love.

'Welcome to Our World' by Chris Rice

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.
