It is not called the most wonderful time of the year for nothing, the very sense of Christmas, the anticipation and the annual traditions and coming together makes for the happiest season of all. A lot of the credit for building and retaining the excitement and jollity can be placed at the door of Christmas music which has for almost a century has kept us in good spirits over the 12 days. So our collection of happy Christmas songs pulls together the cream of the canon of boisterously assembled Christmas songs. And what better place to start than Bing’s jaunty ‘Christmas Is A-Comin’ with its joyful lyrics such as ‘and the more you give at Christmastime the more you get’. Such wise words and when sung by Bing it sounds like something we should abide by.

If you are a fan of Christmas songs then you probably already own Andy Williams’ 1963 classic ‘The Andy Williams Christmas Album’, the first and best of his numerous Christmas collections. And housed within the album’s snowy contents is one of the most cherished jolly Christmas songs of all time ‘Happy Holiday/The Holiday Season’, which was written by Mr White Christmas himself Irving Berlin. If the spirit has evaded you to date then there is one ready cure and it comes in the form of Bruce Springsteen and his E Street Band’s version of ‘Santa Claus Is Coming To Town’. It may be a live recording but Springsteen is steadfast in bringing a sense of the season to all within earshot. Just feel his enthusiasm and that of his band as they set the scene for the big man in the red suit. No Christmas experience should pass without giving it at least one play.

Another Christmas heavyweight to grace our collection of happy Christmas songs is Dean Martin who recorded the only version of ‘Let It Snow! Let It Snow! Let You Snow!’ that you’ll ever need. He recorded it for his 1966 album ‘The Dean Martin Christmas Album’ and ensured it was flush with orchestral embellishment and a heightened sense of fun. And the good times just keep rolling as Martin was joined in the mid sixties by an exuberant Frank Sinatra for their duet of ‘Marshmallow World’. The pair were vital pillars of the fabled Rat Pack and their good humour and chemistry just exudes through the stereo speakers on this bouncy Christmas song. Just like it does on everyone’s favourite granddad Burl Ives’s song ‘Holly Jolly Christmas’. There’s hardly a song recorded that can match Burl’s sense of unadulterated jollity, as pure as driven snow and a melt in the mouth example of a song that has entertained families over the holiday’s for many decades.
