Songs of the Season

Holiday songs play an integral role in Christmas festivities. Singer Brena Lee’s song Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree has supplanted Beyonce’s All I Want for Christmas is You on Billboard charts as the No. 1 favorite in 2023. It was recorded 65 yrs. ago when she was just 13 yrs. old.

The first song associated with Christmas dates back to the 4th century. It was a hymn entitled Jesus Refulsit Omnium (Jesus Light of all the Nations).

The following are just some of the favorite Christmas songs whether you’re caroling or just need a playlist.
