My Top 20 Favorite Modern Christmas Songs

If you're anything like me, you could use a little holiday cheer to brighten up your day during the pandemic.

During the holidays, nothing makes me happier than listening to some Christmas music. Of course there's the classic "Rockin' Around The Christmas Tree" by Brenda Lee, or Irving Berlin's "White Christmas," but I have decided to make a list of some of my favorite Christmas songs that are a little more modern. I also left out "All I Want for Christmas" by Mariah Carey and "Mistletoe" by Justin Bieber because everyone knows about those songs. If you find that you like any of the songs on this list, go ahead and add them on to your own Christmas playlist! Some will make you want to dance, some might make you tear up, but they will all be worth a listen, I promise!
