The words of Xmas song lyrics can range from traditional, religious, humorous to the complete bizarre! The music which accompanies the songs can range from solemn to romantic to unbelievably quirky! An example of all of these types of Xmas songs and music have been included for your enjoyment. We have also tried to include some unusual graphics to compliment the Xmas songs and music. After all, the imagery that accompanies our view of Santa Claus in a red and white outfit, enhanced by the lyrics to Xmas songs, was only introduced in the last century - prior to that time he was depicted in all sorts of colours! Xmas songs without the mention of reindeers and snow just would not be the same, however, these concepts were only introduced following the publication of "Twas the night before Christmas" ! We hope you enjoy the nostalgia of the Xmas songs and music that you will find in the above pages!
