Christmas songs will always be a part of the American holiday tradition. However, the classics are the ones that have a place in our hearts!
These Christmas songs remind us of our fondest childhood memories, gathering around the Christmas tree and opening presents with these tunes in the background. Perhaps they were played on our local radio stations or a friend’s dad owned a really old turntable and played the songs in vinyl. Add a cup of hot chocolate with the company of our loved ones in front of the fireplace, and we’re all good.
