With the holiday season fast approaching, here are some Christmas songs I believe don’t get enough attention:

“Christmas Tree Farm” by Taylor Swift

I had to put this one in here as a converted Swiftie. Plus, it’s a really fun song to listen to that doesn’t get the outside credit it deserves.

“Grown-Up Christmas List” by Amy Grant

For some reason, this was one of my favorite Christmas songs growing up, and I still think it’s worth listening to.

“Mary, Did You Know” by Pentatonix

Pentatonix has so many great Christmas songs! It’s hard to pick just one, but their version of this song sounds so good with their mix of voices.

“River” by Olivia Rodrigo

I love Olivia Rodrigo’s version of this song. Her voice goes so well with the lyrics, and despite its sad tone, it’s very peaceful to listen to.

“Under The Mistletoe” by Kelly Clarkson and Brett Eldredge

This is a much more upbeat song than many on this list. I think this one is a fun, modern addition to your Christmas season.

“Christmas Shoes” by NewSong

This song is definitely a bit sadder than most other Christmas songs, but it is well worth a listen because the storytelling is superb.

“You Make It Feel Like Christmas” By Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton

When you put together two entirely different artists, you get this catchy song that will stay in your head for weeks after the 25th of December.

“Believe” By Josh Groban

This one might be a little bit more mainstream, but it is such a great addition to any Christmas playlist.

“City of Silver Dreams” BY Sugarland

This is one of my more recent finds because it was recommended to me by a friend. I enjoyed it enough to add it to my Christmas playlist.

“Hallelujah” By Carrie Underwood and John Legend

Not the song you might be thinking of, but this collaboration between these two powerhouse singers is a song that I have on repeat throughout the whole season.
