If there’s anything that instantly puts me in the holiday spirit it’s a good old-fashioned Christmas carol. Whether it’s instrumental versions or modern renditions of the old classics, playing Christmas music is one of my favorite ways to celebrate the season. This year the holidays will be more difficult than usual because so many of our staple traditions will have to be postponed. So to cope with the changes of this season, I’ve been playing Christmas music for the last few months (yes, I started before Thanksgiving) and it’s really helped me get into the holiday spirit. 

If you’re been feeling lackluster about the upcoming holidays, or just want to get an extra dose of Christmas cheer, I’ve rounded up some of the best Christmas song lyrics that’ll remind you just how special this season can be.
