Traveling this year to see family? Driving around to see the lights in your neighborhood? These are the best Christmas songs to put you in the Holiday spirit!
There is just something about hearing Christmas music that instantly puts me in the mood for hot chocolate, gift wrapping, and road trips to see family I haven’t see in a while!
Some of my best memories from the holiday season was the songs and games and (sometimes) snacks we’d have on the way to visit my grandparents. One set of grandparents lived a few hours away, so it was a bit of trip to get there. My mom usually had things planned to keep us engaged and entertained (long before the days of portable DVD players LOL). It kept us all in the Holiday spirit and entertained.
We all had our favorite requests and would some times bicker a bit about the best Christmas songs to play while we traveled.
There are just so many potential songs you COULD listen too while you drive along in your fancy new car (a girl can dream a little, right?), but these are the BEST in my opinion!
Here are 19 of the best Christmas songs to get you singing along.
