Christmas songs - Boston Moms

Commuting to work during the holiday season is a lot more pleasant when I can blare the *NSYNC Christmas album. And holiday-themed dance parties sure have a way of turning a kid’s bad mood around. We’re loving the holiday tunes that are playing everywhere this time of year. Here are some of my family’s favorite Christmas songs — both traditional and guilty pleasure. Give them a listen!

  • “That’s What I Want for Christmas” by SheDaisy
  • “Wrapped in Red” by Kelly Clarkson
  • “Little Drummer Boy/Peace on Earth” by David Bowie and Bing Crosby
  • “Christmas Is Coming” by Miss Piggy and Friends
  • “Where Are You Christmas?” by Faith Hill
  • “The Only Gift” by *NSYNC
  • “Christmas Lights” by Coldplay
  • “A Holly Jolly Christmas” by Burl Ives
  • “It Feels Like Christmas” by The Muppet Christmas Carol
  • “Mele Kalikimaka (Merry Christmas)” by Bing Crosby and The Andrews Sisters
  • “All I Want for Christmas Is You” by Mariah Carey
  • “River” by Robert Downey Jr.
