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 CareyGiphy
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
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
From one of the best Christmas movies, The Polar Express, which I personally watch every Christmas.
Rockin' Around The Christmas Tree — Brenda Lee
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
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.
Last Christmas — Wham!
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
If it's freezing outside then we might as well sing in hopes that we will get snow.
Holly Jolly Christmas — Lady Antebellum
Another Christmas carol that everyone can dance to.
Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer — Burl IvesGiphy
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 — PentatonixGiphy
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 PresleyGiphy
Another sad Christmas song but Elvis has a sound like no other so you can't go wrong.
Santa Tell Me — Ariana GrandeGiphy
Honestly, she's been the Queen of Pop lately and this original song tells you why.
You're a Mean One Mr. Grinch — Nashville CastGiphy
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
Truly a weird Christmas carol but we like to keep things interesting during the holiday season.
Santa Baby — Ariana GrandeGiphy
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.
Another one that has been covered by a variety of artists but this cover is especially unique.
Winter Wonderland — Lady Gaga & Tony BennettGiphy
To end the list, another Christmas duet because what better way to celebrate Christmas than by singing with someone!
