I like listening to Christmas music, be it traditional Christmas carols or the classic rock ´n roll and pop music Christmas songs. There’s no better background for Christmas tree decorating than some festive music.
Here is my selection of 12 best Christmas songs:
According to Wikipedia Silent Night was composed in 1818 by Franz Xaver Gruber to lyrics by Joseph Mohr, in Austria. It was declared an intangible cultural heritage by UNESCO in 2011. A true classic.
This is an American song written by James Lord Pierpont and published under the title “One Horse Open Sleigh” in the autumn of 1857. I like the cheerful melody of this old Christmas song.
We wish you a Merry Christmas
It’s a traditional English Christmas carol.
