Not an exhaustive list.
  1. O Holy Night
    This is the best one. Don't argue with me-it's a breathtaking power ballad that has the effect of Beyoncé's "Love on Top" without any actual key changes which is amazing
  2. The Christmas Song
    It just makes you feel warm and Christmas-y
  3. All I Want for Christmas Is You
    A literal instant classic that joined the hall of Christmas song fame as soon as it was released
  4. Baby It's Cold Outside
    Has some problematic implications but also is so cheeky and lovely to sing with the person you're crushing on
  5. Mistletoe
    Another late-comer to the Christmas song scene that became instantly loved. Idk if anyone's had as much success as Mariah Carey or JBiebs in creating contemporary Christmas songs
  6. Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas
    Especially when sung by Michael Bublé with his voice that sounds like a smooth scotch tastes
  7. Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays
    I take back what I said- Mariah, Justin AND NSYNC were able to make instant-classic-status contemporary Christmas songs
  8. White Christmas
    This goes into the listen-while-you're-drinking-hot chocolate-and-curled-up-with-a-good-book category
  9. Silent Night
    It's pretty, but nothing special if I'm being honest
  10. Santa Baby
    I hate this one so much- I get that it's for the adults that pretend to be Santa for their small children but don't sexualize him pls
  11. Jingle Bells
    If this is your favourite Christmas song rethink your choices
