A version of this originally ran in December 2016.
The votes from TBL writers have been tallied. Here is the definitive list of the 10 Best Christmas Songs. Happy Holidays!
#1 White Christmas
What else were you dreaming of?
#2 O Holy Night
#3 All I Want for Christmas Is You
This was the most divisive song on the list. It earned enough votes to make both our ‘best” and “worst” lists.
#4 Carol of the Bells
Unclear how much of a role “Home Alone” played in this decision.
#5 Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas
#6 Silent Night
#7 Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree
#8 Run, Rudolph, Run
#9 Santa Claus Is Coming to Town
For our sports media friends of a certain vintage…
#10 Last Christmas
If you can’t appreciate Wham!, that’s a “you” problem.
