“Winter Wonderland” – Leona Lewis, Christmas, With Love 

This new cover of the classic is so much fun. With upbeat music and amazing vocals, it makes for a great sing-along with the fam.

“O Holy Night” – Nicole Scherzinger, A Very Special Christmas

“This Christmas” – The Summer Set, Punk Goes Christmas

This super sweet rock song puts a spin on a typical holiday playlist.

“It’s The Most Wonderful Time of the Year” – Matthew Morrison, A Classic Christmas 

Best known for being Mr. Schue on Glee, Matthew Morrison now has a Christmas album and is putting his own special flare on all of our faves. Light up the fire and blast this. 

“White Christmas” – Bad Religion, Christmas Songs

Bad Religion is out with a Christmas album and it’s full of fun punk-rock versions that will have you jamming out to the songs that used to put you to sleep.

“Santa Baby” – Ariana Grande ft. Liz Gillies

Two of our fave Victorious stars and real-life BFFs teamed up to make a remix that will have you singing along in no time.

“Wrapped in Red” – Kelly Clarkson, Wrapped in Red

Wrapped in Red recently shot up on the music charts and we’re not surprised! This new Christmas tune is a soon-to-be classic. 

“The Christmas Song (Chestnuts Roasting On An Open Fire)” – Pentatonix, PTXmas

We can’t stop listening to Pentatonix’s new Christmas album—and for good reason! This fun a capella version is amazing.

“Fool’s Holiday” – All Time Low, Punk Goes Christmas 

This punk-rock band creates a totally fun new Xmas song just in time for the holidays. We love the lyrics stand apart from some of our other festive faves.

“Please Come Home For Christmas” – Cody Simpson, The Acoustic Sessions 

Fresh off of his new EP, Cody Simpson has wowed us with a new song perfect for this holiday season. It’s not easy to create a hit Christmas song so early in one’s career, but Cody is proving himself to be a top contender.

“Rudolph The Red-Nose Reindeer” – Mary J. Blige, A Mary Christmas

This classic children’s song is given an upbeat R&B feel with Mary J. Blige’s amazing vocals, proving that you’re never too old to adore a children’s classic.

“Winter Dreams (Brandon’s Song)” – Kelly Clarkson, Wrapped in Red

We couldn’t help but put another Kelly Clarkson song on this playlist. This one is loaded with the traditional Christmas bells and sentimental lyrics and worthy of multiple replays.
