“It’s Beginning To Look a Lot Like Christmas” by Michael Bublé

The house is starting to be adorned with Christmas decorations everywhere. The lights are on the house, and you come home to your mother putting ornaments on the tree. What a better way to get in the spirit by having Michael Bublé serenade you.


“Blue Christmas” by Elvis Presley

Presley is a classic, and him humming a classic Christmas song is sure to make anybody feel in the mood for the holiday. It’s especially great when you think about him singing it to you personally since he is such a beautiful soul.


“Where Are You Christmas” by Faith Hill

Watching The Grinch makes any teenager feel like a kid again. This song from such a wonderful movie certainly knows how to make somebody yearn for the long awaited holiday.


“Chestnuts Roasting On An Open Fire” by Nat King Cole

This song always puts you in the mood to drink hot chocolate and sit by the fire with your family. It’s perfect to turn on while decorating the Christmas tree.


“Baby, It’s Cold Outside” by Leon Redbone & Zooey Deschanel

The weather is beginning to be below freezing, and you have frozen toes just walking from your car to first period. Elf had the best version of this song with the perfect pairing of voices to make you feel like the winter season is really here.


“Holly Jolly Christmas” by Lady Antebellum

Lady Antebellum gave this old song a facelift making it as happy as ever. It’s sure to put a smile on your face when you’re feeling down that Christmas isn’t quite here yet.


“Let It Snow” by Frank Sinatra

While in Texarkana the odds of it snowing are highly unlikely, we can still dream, right? Snow adds to the entity of the spirit and Frank serenades you perfectly while you greatly wish it would actually snow this year.


“Have Yourself a Merry Christmas” by Idina Menzel

While Idina was first famous in broadway shows, her voice became distinguishable to most people from Frozen. Her voice always makes me happy especially in such a song where you’re being encouraged to have a great holiday season.


“All I Want For Christmas Is You” by Mariah Carey

If you haven’t heard this song, you either hate Christmas or live under a rock. The holidays aren’t complete without Mariah singing about this man she wanted 20 years ago. Feel free to blare this song in your car especially if you’re having some relationship troubles.
