With the best holiday of all, Christmas, approaching, I only thought it would only be appropriate to share my top 5 Christmas songs.

In my opinion, the fifth-best Christmas song of all time is “Feliz Navidad” by Jose Feliciano. It’s not the most traditional Christmas song, but it puts you in a happy and excited mood for Christmas. It’s also my overall favorite Spanish song of all time.

The fourth-best Christmas song of all time is “Jingle Bell Rock” by Bobby Helms. This song is super catchy, and if I listened to it just one time, I would guarantee that it would get stuck in my head all day. The tune is perfect, and it gives amazing Christmas vibes.

No. 3 on my list is “Wonderful Christmas Time” by Paul McCartney and Wings. This song gives you everything you need to hear when you think of Christmas Time. It has an appropriate vibe for a cheery and upbeat season.

“Santa Clause is Coming to Town” by Bruce Springsteen is second on my list. This song isn’t like the traditional Christmas song that you hear on traditional Christmas radio; it is more of a rock version of Christmas songs. In my opinion, that makes the song so much better. With one of the best artists of all time, Bruce Springsteen, singing, this song is perfect for my Christmas music.

Finally, the best Christmas song of all time is “Silent Night” written by Joseph Mohr and sung by Pentatonix. This song is perfect for Christmas because it gives you the joy and peace of the Christmas season. Then with Pentatonix singing “Silent Night,” it makes it only better because it is one of the most calming songs you will listen to which is perfect for the Christmas season.

There are a lot of perfect things about the Christmas Season like the vibes, gifting, family time, etc. But listening to these five songs only makes it all better in my opinion.
