Best Christmas Songs You've Never Heard

Best Christmas Songs You've Never Heard


Everyone knows all the original, classic Christmas music but there's other songs too that the radio doesn't play. Many artists have written their own Christmas songs and although they haven't become huge hits, they are still worth a listen during the Christmas season, especially if you're tired of hearing the same few classic songs. Here's a list of Christmas songs you should hear this year! (I know, I rhymed).

1. Santa Stole My Girlfriend

The Maine

I know, it sounds ridiculous.

The Maine came out with an awesome Christmas album back in 2008 and wrote some pretty original songs. This song has been one of my favorites because it's super fun and catchy!

"I wish my old girl, would've never kissed Saint Nick"

If you check out this song, I suggest you check out this whole album! The Maine made many songs that I love to listen to every week. If this one isn't your favorite for the holiday, you sure will find one!

2. 30 Days 'Til Christmas


Unlike The Maine's upbeat, catchy song, this one is more slow and sad. It's super beautiful to hear and helps you think of what Christmas means to you. This song is great outside of the Christmas season too since it's basically a romance song. I can listen to it on repeat all December, such a sweet song!

3. Paper and Pen

Rocky Loves Emily

Just like the NeverShoutNever song, you can listen to this song all year, not just on Christmas. This song is so cute and beautiful I can't help but sing! Another sweet Christmas love song.

"I miss you under mistletoe, and long walks under falling snow"

4. Christmas Must Be Something More

Taylor Swift

Of course it wouldn't be a Christmas song list without some Taylor Swift! Even though she's not my favorite and her genre isn't really the same as these other songs, I love love love this song! It's so powerful and meaningful but also super fun! This is easily one of the most underrated Taylor Swift songs out there and it's been an oversight since it first came out in 2007. So shout out to T-Swift for writing a cool song about the true meaning of Christmas.

5. Christmas With You

Artist vs Poet

This is another song that is nice all year long. They're voices are so beautiful and the melody in this song is intense, like you'll want to sing it out even if you don't know the words. You can literally feel the passion behind this song when they sing. A big fave for me. This was the first year I heard it even though it's 6 years old.

6. Kiss Me Like It's Christmas

This Century

I seriously love this song so much! This song is so upbeat and fun and easily puts you into the Christmas spirit.

"Kiss me, won't you kiss me, kiss me like it's Christmas"

Love the meaning behind it. Though it's a Christmas love song like most of the others, it has a catchy Christmas vibe and tune.

7. Merry Christmas Baby

Brighten ft. The Maine

I've loved this song for many Christmas's now. This song is so chill and pretty. It's acoustic like a few of the others. The best part about this song though, is that it also has John O'Callaghan from The Maine in it! Though the song is acoustic, it gets fast and catchy in the chorus. It's super pretty and upbeat.

Even though Christmas has come to an end, I hope you guys check out these songs and keep them in mind for next season.

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

5 Perks Of Having A Long-Distance Best Friend

The best kind of long-distance relationship.

Sometimes, people get annoyed when girls refer to multiple people as their "best friend," but they don't understand. We have different types of best friends. There's the going out together best friend, the see each other everyday best friend and the constant, low maintenance best friend.

While I'm lucky enough to have two out of the three at the same school as me, my "low maintenance" best friend goes to college six hours from Baton Rouge.

This type of friend is special because no matter how long you go without talking or seeing each other, you're always insanely close. Even though I miss her daily, having a long-distance best friend has its perks. Here are just a few of them...

1. Getting to see each other is a special event.

Sometimes when you see someone all the time, you take that person and their friendship for granted. When you don't get to see one of your favorite people very often, the times when you're together are truly appreciated.

2. You always have someone to give unbiased advice.

This person knows you best, but they probably don't know the people you're telling them about, so they can give you better advice than anyone else.

3. You always have someone to text and FaceTime.

While there may be hundreds of miles between you, they're also just a phone call away. You know they'll always be there for you even when they can't physically be there.

4. You can plan fun trips to visit each other.

When you can visit each other, you get to meet the people you've heard so much about and experience all the places they love. You get to have your own college experience and, sometimes, theirs, too.

5. You know they will always be a part of your life.

If you can survive going to school in different states, you've both proven that your friendship will last forever. You both care enough to make time for the other in the midst of exams, social events, and homework.

The long-distance best friend is a forever friend. While I wish I could see mine more, I wouldn't trade her for anything.

Christmas Of Remembrance Series: My Last Letter

Christmas time is not about the gifts... It is about something far, far more special.


Dear Reader,

Thank you for your time.

This is a series that I have dedicated to those I have loved and lost. It was merely a thought, then an idea, and now a realized creation. Christmas time… all winter really is a hard time for me. It holds this duality in my life of being both my favorite and also my least favorite and difficult time of year. It has been that way for years now.

In a way, this series aids my closure and healing further, and it allows me to tell my story in a way that, to me, is less scary (one of the many great facets of this platform). It was never my intention to write this in order to reach people, or encourage people, or serve as an inspiration to anyone. This was for me and only me. No one else. But, if these pieces of writing do impact someone, somewhere, or make them feel encouraged or inspired in some way or another, or just simply make them feel, then I hope you have enjoyed them. If I can make someone feel, then I guess I have done my job.

The life of an artist is often an uncertain one. The life of a human is a trying one. But life is a journey, and all journeys have their trials. Their tests. Their triumphs and rewards. And they all have their losses. What matters most is what you make of all of it. What lessons you learn. What changes you make. What life you create for yourself. What art you create because of it all. It can be very, very hard. But it can all be glorious at the same time.

At the heart of this series, my words, there is this deep and valuable belief of mine: Christmas (or the Winter Holiday that you may celebrate) is so much more about presents and cooking and shopping and all that other bullshit… it is about family.

The family that is related by blood. The family that surrounds your heart. Your Mom. Your brother. Your dearest friends. The bonds that make life valuable. Worth living. These bonds are soulful bonds, ones that are far more special than any mere trivial object. So… be with them. Forgive. Forget. Heal. Mend what is broken. Reassemble what has been shattered. And stop worrying so much. Laugh together. Cry together. Heal on another. Heal together. And may your new days be better, brighter, and full of love.

Happy Holidays.


A song for you...
