Merry Christmas to all, and to all a good night! Deck the halls with boughs of holly this Christmas season with the joyous sounds of holiday cheer. The children love songs of Santa and the presents and joy he brings with the winter season. Here are three songs from the jolly man himself to put the children in the right spirit!
Santa Claus is Coming to Town
You better watch out, you better not cry… you know the rest! A classic song sung by all ages, this cheerful tune is one of the most iconic Christmas songs of all time. This song fills children with the wonderful fantasies that Christmas brings, like Santa Claus landing on the roof in his sleigh, coming down the chimney with his bag full of presents for everyone. Here is a very familiar version of the song “Santa Claus is Coming to Town” for you and your family to sing along with!
.I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus
…Underneath the mistletoe last night! From the innocent eyes of a young child witnessing his mother kissing Saint Nick, this song is another popular song sung during the Christmas season. We all heard this song when we were kids and imagined our mothers kissing the man with the belly like a bowl full of jelly by the fireplace on Christmas night. Some of us even sneaked downstairs in the middle of the night on Christmas Eve just to see if we could catch our mothers in the act! A great rendition of this song was covered by none other than the Jackson 5, bringing an upbeat and catchy tune to the song we all know and love.
Jolly Old Saint Nicholas
A very old but still very popular song during the winter holiday season, “Jolly Old Saint Nicholas” tells the tale of Santa’s visit on Christmas Eve and of a child telling Santa Claus what he/she wants for Christmas this year. The song begins by describing how Santa brings the presents and then goes on to tell of which stocking the child wants him to place his/her presents. This is the perfect song for teaching children about what the idea of Santa Claus is all about. Below is a sing-along version of the song.
No matter if you decide to sing one of these songs or all of them, they will all surely bring you and your family many tidings of great joy this holiday season. ‘Tis the season to be jolly… and sing, too!
