For starters, the earlier history of this British carol is still unclear. It has several versions from famous artists like The Weavers, Roger Whittaker, The Kingston Trio, etc. Playing this music at home during the Christmas holiday is sure to uplift your little ones’spirits. This is also a cheeky way of ensuring your child wishes you a merry Christmas.
“Jingle Bells” ranks among the most popular Christian Christmas songs for kids ever produced in recent times. Personally, it was my favorite classic Christmas melody as a child. Armed with their Disney Princess and Superman costumes, children can dive right into the holiday season with Jingle Bell fun.
When kids hear the name Santa Claus, they immediately start dreaminggifts. Although this song has been re-done by more than 200 artists, it is the Mariah Carey version that stands out. In this track, Mariah’s voice is like a sharp Samurai blade cutting through backed up by the cheerful sound of kids. You’ll definitely know that Christmas is around when you hear ‘Mrs. Christmas’.
Fourth on our list is a funny Christmas song for kids to perform, “All I Want for Christmas is My Two Front Teeth”. This song is all about a toddler who lost two front teeth, hence can’t wish anyone a Merry Christmas. I know most elementary school-going children will love singing this song because they can relate to it.
Released in 1953 by the then 10-year old GaylaPeevey, this novelty classic undoubtedly deserves some degree of recognition. It is a simple tune that is sung confidently and sweetly. It is believed that it was recorded during a fundraiser to bring the Oklahoma City Zoo a hippo named Matilda. The hippo lived for about 50 years, and Peevey is now 73.
This Christmas track recounts a fictional tale of a particular snowman, Frosty. He is given life by a magical hat that a group of kids found and place on Frosty’s head. He goes on to enjoy a walk around the town with the kids. It has a sad ending, however, because Frosty had to leave but promises to come back someday. The later versions of this music attribute Frosty’s departure to the hot sun.
Released in 2008, “The 12 days of Christmas” talks about the grand gifts given during the 12 days of Christmas season, including the Christmas day. This song is said to have French origins, although it was first published in England in the 1970s as a rhyme or chant. Other artists who have recorded this track include John Denver (The Muppets), Roger Whittaker, Seth Everman, Connie Francis, etc.
Mariah Carey just can’t stop singing, huh? Released in November 2010, “Mary Christmas II You” is a great song for older children; let’s say six years and above. It is part of the “Holiday” collection,which boasts of 13 Christmas tracks, including the popular “All I Want for Christmas is You”. Maybe you can even download the entire album for the whole family.
You may have heard the phrase “Deck the Halls” during the holiday season. The simple meaning for it is to decorate for Christmas. Moving forward, “Deck the Halls” (Originally Deck the Hall) is a traditional Christmas and New Years’ carol that has Welsh origin dating back to the 16th century. A Scottish artist, Thomas Oliphant, wrote the first English version. Technically, this song is about the New Years’ party but has since been incorporated in the Christmas celebrations as well. I’m pretty sure your kids will enjoy singing along to this tune.
Indeed, there is no better feeling for toddlers than to wait for Kris Kringle to come rolling down the chimney on a Christmas eve with gifts. The excitement even gets ‘wilder’ if you play this joyous and upbeat carol as you prepare them for the arrival of the man with white beards and a red suit. Apart from Gene Autry, other artists who have recorded this track include Bing Cosby, Doris Day, Elvis Presley, and many others. The latest version is by Pentatonix that was released in 2018.
