As we head into the final week before Christmas, it might be good to take a few minutes away from all the shopping, cooking and baking, present-wrapping, and other chores that come around this time of year.
Instead, let’s talk about holiday songs that embrace the Christmas spirit. Well, in this case, the Christmas comical spirit.
Yes, there are the standard tunes we’ve come to know and love this time of year. Obviously, such popular titles as “Jingle Bells,” “The Christmas Song” (you know the one — “chestnuts roasting by an open fire”), “Santa Claus Is Coming To Town,” and the ever-popular “White Christmas.”
Then there are the traditional religious songs, like “O Little Town of Bethlehem,” “Away In A Manger,” and the very emotional “Silent Night.”
But along with the lists of Yuletide favorites are songs that are of the more comical nature. And who doesn’t need a good laugh, especially at this stressful time of the year.
