The Ultimate List Of Christmas Songs

Christmas is right around the corner and a lot of people wait until after Thanksgiving to celebrate it.

However, Christmas music can be enjoyed all year round so I made the ultimate list of Christmas songs to listen to even when it's not ~officially~ Christmas time.

So, it's time to sit back and listen to some Christmas music to uplift our spirits while we wait for the snow to come.

All I want for Christmas is You — Mariah Carey

Giphy

This song tops the charts every holiday season and is the ultimate Christmas bop.

White Christmas — Bing Crosby

A little slower compared to some of the newer pop Christmas songs, but still a classic.

Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas — Frank Sinatra

c1.staticflickr.com

This is another slow one but the message of the lyrics are still ever so sweet.

It's Beginning to Look A Lot Like Christmas — Michael Bublé

Honestly, I love Michael Bublé no matter what he sings but his soothing voice is perfect for Christmas carols.

Believe — Josh Groban

upload.wikimedia.org

From one of the best Christmas movies, The Polar Express, which I personally watch every Christmas.

Rockin' Around The Christmas Tree — Brenda Lee

c1.staticflickr.com

I wasn't the only one that had to dance to this song during elementary school Christmas performances, right?

Besides, it's so catchy and is one of the most upbeat Christmas songs.

Mistletoe — Justin Bieber

Every one misses Justin Bieber when he looked like this and this pop song will help you relive those glory days.

I mean, how often can you say that you listen to a Christmas song with the word "shawty" as one of the main words in the chorus?

Jingle Bell Rock — Glee

You might be able to get over seeing this song in the iconic Mean Girls scene if you listen to this cover.

To be honest, I actually often like the Glee versions of songs more than the originals.

The Christmas Song — Nat King Cole

c1.staticflickr.com

This song has some of the most recognizable Christmas lyrics.

Baby It's Cold Outside — Idina Menzel & Michael Buble'

Giphy

The meaning behind this song has been controversial over the past couple of years but the music video is just so cute.

Plus, this version is a lot more friendly than the original version's lyrics — you can literally grab one of your friends and sing the duet through and through.

Here Comes Santa Claus — Gene Autry

Giphy

Another upbeat classic that reminds you of your childhood.

Last Christmas — Wham!

c1.staticflickr.com

Honestly, this is kind of a sad one but you definitely need to listen to it to get over your Christmas blues!

Let it Snow! — Dean Martin 

c1.staticflickr.com

If it's freezing outside then we might as well sing in hopes that we will get snow.

Holly Jolly Christmas — Lady Antebellum

upload.wikimedia.org

Another Christmas carol that everyone can dance to.

Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer — Burl Ives

Giphy

Everyone knows these lyrics so it's a great song to listen to so everyone can sing along.

Christmas (Baby Please Come Home) — Michael Buble'

Another great one if you're spending the holidays alone plus you can't go wrong with Michael's soothing voice.

Hallelujah — Pentatonix

Giphy

Everyone loves a great a cappella song and you won't know if the chills are from the song or the chilly weather outside.

Blue Christmas — Elvis Presley

Giphy

Another sad Christmas song but Elvis has a sound like no other so you can't go wrong.

Santa Tell Me — Ariana Grande

Giphy

Honestly, she's been the Queen of Pop lately and this original song tells you why.

You're a Mean One Mr. Grinch — Nashville Cast

Giphy

This is another TV show cover but we have to add this song to the list especially with the new Grinch out in theaters this year.

I saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus — Jessica Simpson

upload.wikimedia.org

Truly a weird Christmas carol but we like to keep things interesting during the holiday season.

Santa Baby — Ariana Grande

Giphy

This is another oddly sexual Christmas carol but it's been covered by a variety of artist and, again, Ariana is currently the Queen of Pop.

Sleigh Ride— Fun.

upload.wikimedia.org

Another one that has been covered by a variety of artists but this cover is especially unique.

Winter Wonderland — Lady Gaga & Tony Bennett

Giphy

To end the list, another Christmas duet because what better way to celebrate Christmas than by singing with someone!

6 Questions To Ask Yourself When Cleaning Up Your Room

This holiday break is the perfect time to get away from the materialistic frenzy of the world and turn your room into a decluttered sanctuary.

Cleaning isn’t just for spring. In fact, I find school’s holiday break to be a very effective time for decluttering. You’re already being bombarded by the materialistically-infatuated frenzy of society’s version of Christmas, Hanukah, etc. It’s nice to get out of the claustrophobic avarice of the world and come home to a clean, fresh, and tidy room. While stacking up old books, CDs, and shoes may seem like no big deal, it can become a dangerous habit. The longer you hang onto something, whether it be for sentimental value or simply routine, it becomes much harder to let go of. Starting the process of decluttering can be the hardest part. To make it a little easier, get out three boxes and label them Donate, Storage, and Trash. I'm in the middle of the process right now, and while it is quite time consuming, it is also so relieving and calming to see how much you don't have to deal with anymore. Use these six questions below to help decide where an item gets sorted or if it obtains the value to stay out in your precious sanctuary from the world.

Why I Don't Write (Or Read) An "Open Letter To My Future Husband/Wife"

Because inflated expectations and having marriage as your only goal are overrated.

Urban Intellectuals

Although I have since changed my major I remember the feverish hysteria of applying to nursing school--refreshing your email repeatedly, asking friends, and frantically calculating your GPA at ungodly hours of the night. When my acceptance came in I announced the news to friends and family with all the candor of your average collegiate. I was met with well wishes, congratulations, and interrogations on the program's rank, size, etc. Then, unexpectedly, I was met with something else.
