Funny Christmas Songs

The Christmas season is filled with all types of songs and carols that can fit anyone's taste. However, sometimes funny Christmas songs are a favourite to lighten the mood and create a fun and festive atmosphere. 
 
As the years have passed, funny Christmas songs have emerged and in turn have become classic staples along with traditional carols. The most popular funny holiday songs tell a narrative that children most often relate to. "I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Clause", written by Tommie Connor, is one of the earliest songs in this sub-genre, that tells the story from the point-of-view of a child. The youngster in this song awakes to witness his mother kissing the assumed 'Santa Clause' on Christmas Eve. Another song that follows this style is "Grandma Got Run Over By A Reindeer" which hilariously depicts the existence of Santa by recanting a story of how a man's grandmother had a run in with Santa's sleigh. "All I Want For Christmas Is My Two Front Teeth",written again from the child's point of view, is a favourite of many children throughout the holiday season. The Chipmunks have even made the list with their own original song. "The Chipmunk Song (Christmas Don't Be Late)" sung by the fictional group known as The Chipmunks, is now considered a holiday classic. For the naughty child in all of us, "I'm Gettin' Nuttin' For Christmas" will always be on the forefront of our memories.
 
Other funny Christmas songs are in a slightly different style. There are those songs that use the same melody of traditional Christmas songs, but are sung with comical lyrics. Parodies of "Jingle Bells" and "Rudolph The Red Nosed Reindeer" are popular with children who replace the traditional lyrics with silly ones. Comedian, Jeff Foxworthy, has also created his own parody of "The Twelve Days of Christmas", putting his trademark 'red neck' spin on it. Other parody songs that are found around the internet include "I Saw Daddy Kissing Santa Clause", "The Restroom Door Said Gentlemen", and "White Trash Christmas" which are sung to the melodies of "I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Clause", "God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen" and "White Christmas" respectively.
 
Children and adults alike will enjoy these joyful tunes for the rest of their lives. Although these songs lack a certain prestige, they remain holiday favourites because of their fun and carefree approach to the Christmas season.
