Christmas Songs List2Picking out the correct Christmas party songs for your event is one of the most important items you can check off your list. Everybody loves to get together for the holidays as it is often the perfect time for friends, family, and even co-workers to grow their relationships in a relaxed atmosphere. Make sure you've got a great music list made out before that key date arrives because nothing will make people leave your party early like bad music.

The songs that you pick out will play a key role in how successful your party is and whether people will come to the next one you have. Most people like to play Christmas or Christmas related music during the holidays so I have compiled a diverse list for you to choose from.

Often some of the best Christmas music is performed by artists you normally wouldn't associate with Christmas.  One of my favorite Christmas albums is Christmas In the Heart by Bob Dylan.  It's really a lot of fun to listen to by the fire.

Here's how the list works, if you need instructions:  The songs themselves are in bold, while the singer appears after. There may be more than one artist after the song as there are often many artists that have sung a particular song. I have tried to pick the best rendition of each song, but I couldn't list them all (they're way too many).

If you don't see your favorite song played by a particular artist, you can go to Amazon, iTunes, etc. and punch in the song. You'll probably get a whole page of people who have performed it.

I hope the list below makes your Christmas party a memorable one.
