The one thing I love about Christmas besides the colorful decorations and kids enjoying the holiday season is the music. This time of year, Christmas songs are inescapable. You can here them blaring from the department store speakers. Here are my five favorite Christmas songs of all time.

This Christmas

"This Christmas" by Donny Hathaway is my all-time favorite Christmas song. It is soulful, touching, and warm. This tune never fails to put me in the holiday spirit. Playing this song every Christmas has been a family tradition for many years. Donny Hathaway’s voice serenading my apartment on Christmas makes it feel magical. I have heard other versions of this song, but this one is the best!

The Christmas Song

"The Christmas Song” by Nat King Cole is synonymous with Christmas Day. I often pictured myself relaxing on a comfortable wooden chair in front of a fireplace when I hear this song play. I feel like I am in a room with Nat King Cole as he serenades me when his beautiful voice. “The Christmas Song” is Christmas music at its finest!

All I Want for Christmas Is You

"All I Want for Christmas Is You" by Mariah Carey has become a contemporary holiday standard. The song makes Christmas Day fun and romantic. Mariah Carey’s voice has a unique way of making listeners fall in love with the holiday season. What makes “All I Want for Christmas Is You” special is because it still appeals to both the young and old generation. Everybody can relate to wanting to spend time with someone special on Christmas.

The Little Drummer Boy

“The Little Drummer Boy” by the Temptations is a great Christmas song that gets the party started. The music makes me want to dance and think about the excitement of Christmas. I often pictured the Temptations singing this song on the corner of 125th Street in front of the Adam Clayton Powell Building. “The Little Drummer Boy” was also my grandmother’s favorite Christmas song, which makes it sentimental to me.

World Christmas

“World Christmas” by R. Kelly is a modern Christmas song full of passion and emotion. It is a beautiful song. I enjoyed listening to this soulful Christmas song during the holiday season. “World Christmas” is one of the greatest Christmas songs ever recorded.
