Best Christmas Songs: Top 20 Holiday Tunes To Spin This Festive Season


The only thing more synonymous with the holidays than giving and receiving gifts is the songs that the season also brings.

While almost anyone can regurgitate their own version of a Christmas carol on demand, HuffPost Canada Music has assembled a list of some of our favourite holiday songs, ranging from traditional crooners (Andy Williams) and 50s rock'n'rollers (Chuck Berry) to punk rockers (The Ramones) and Canadian hosers (Bob & Doug Mackenzie) to pretty much everyone in between (a Bing Crosby and David Bowie duet).

And because 'tis the season of giving, here's an Rdio playlist so you can listen to these songs at home.

Merry Christmas and happy holidays!
