Beautiful Christmas Songs

Beautiful Christmas songs are masterpieces which contain lyrics that create stunning visual imagery, a moving melody, and a heart warming message. When these three elements combine, the most beautiful Christmas songs in the world emerge and we can enjoy the holiday magic.

There have been many albums recorded over the years that have contained beautiful Christmas carols. These albums are very similar and the authors seem to have the same idea about what constitutes a beautiful tune. The songs that have made their lists are well received by all and most people would agree that they are beautiful songs. These albums include Bony M.'s "The Most Beautiful Christmas Songs of the World", and "White Christmas: 20 Beautiful Christmas Songs".

The two different types of beautiful Christmas carols are religious and secular. The religious carols are hymns that have a very prominent story of Christianity. Some of the most beautiful Christmas carols fall into this category. "O Holy Night", which describes the birth of Jesus Christ, is considered one of the most beautiful Christmas songs ever written. The lyrics and melody are said to be very moving and hearing this song brings some people to tears. Other religious songs which are considered beautiful include, "Silent Night", "Little Drummer Boy", and "Hark The Herald Angels Sing". These songs have been on compilation albums containing beautiful Christmas songs, by various artists.

Secular Christmas carols can still be beautiful even though they do not directly reference the religious aspects of Christmas. "Oh Christmas Tree", is regarded as a beautiful Christmas song, which describes a lovely traditional tree that had been decorated for Christmas. "White Christmas" also falls into this category, with its lyrics describing a beautiful snowy scene. Another well known beautiful Christmas song is "Winter Wonderland", which depicts the wondrous beauty in the holiday season. Other secular songs include, "Auld Lang Syne", "Jingle Bells", "Blue Christmas", and "Silver Bells", which have all been described as beautiful holiday tunes.

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Some of these songs that are mentioned might not appeal to you in the same way that they do to me, which makes this list open for discussion. The interpretation of beauty is a personal thing and you can be the only judge for what you believe is beautiful. However, whether you agree with this list or not, these songs have stood the test of time and will be around for many years to come.
