Did you ever realize that most of our favourite Christmas songs aren’t even about Christmas and don’t even mention the holiday? Actually, most of them are about it being cold outside — which we relate too.
Christmas songs make the holiday experience regardless your background because no matter what the store you step into, you will hear “Let It Snow” and we don’t hate it — at least not always. A lot of holiday songs are fairly non-religious and are fun for everyone to sing along too — and we all get (slightly) sick and tired of the radio at the same time in December anyways.
Working retail ( and, really, existing in November – December) results in hearing the same time ten times a day sung by 7 different people. This normally includes Frank Sinatra, Michael Buble and the respective Glee cover. This is normally okay because, in all honesty, no matter who sings it, “Let It Snow” is our jam.
To make you feel a bit better about listening to Christmas music all year round, here are some tracks that you won’t have to feel embarrassed listening to:
Baby, It’s Cold Outside (Glee Cast Version)
It’s literally cold outside okay, we relate.
All I Want for Christmas Is You – Mariah Carey
It’s never to early to make your wish list.
Let It Snow – Michael Buble
Don’t actually let it snow but do jam out to Buble.
Winter Wonderland – Leona Lewis
It makes us feel better about the inevitable snow.
My Favourite Things – Julie Andrews
Apparently it’s considered a Christmas song. Who knew?
Santa Baby – Ariana Grande
Anything Ariana deserves to be heard all year round.
Fa La La – Justin Bieber
Justin Bieber. Need we say more?
What Christmas Means To Me – Stevie Wonder
It’s never to early to think about what the holiday times really mean to you. Plus, Stevie.
Go Tell It On the Mountain – Pentatonix
Christmas isn’t in the title and it features Mitch’s unreal vocals. Need we need more reasons?
Kiss Me At Midnight – *NSYNC
Really? Are you really going to question why it’s always okay to listen to *NSYNC?
