As you'll have probably heard from parents, grandparents and older folk in general down through the years Christmas is especially suited for children. And you know these wiser people had a point as nothing beats the excitement of Christmas morning as the brightly wrapped treasure reveals itself from beneath the Christmas tree. Christmas carols themselves are amongst the easiest songs for children to learn and this playlist showcases the best known ones from a variety of different artists and performers.
The biggest thing you'll take from this playlist is how much fun Christmas carols for children are. Whether it be the uncontrolled chaos of the Muppets (with some degree of help from John Denver) on 'The Peace Carol' or the entirely bonkers nature of the cast of Sesame Street on 'The Twelve Days of Christmas'. The common theme throughout are that these are children’s carols to be sung out loud without any fear of being told that things need to quieten down a little because it is only 5am! The reason that classic airs like 'Away In A Manager', 'Silent Night' and 'O Little Town of Bethlehem' have lasted through the ages is because they continue to stoke the imagination of little ones and will do so for an eternity of Christmas times to come.
