Silly Christmas Songs

Finding a Christmas song to fit your personality is easier than most people realize. There are so many different types of Christmas songs that can make you laugh, cry or smile. Silly songs that are about Christmas seem to be the most fun out of all the holiday tunes.

Silly Christmas songs are usually aimed at children and speak from their point of view. These are fun for the youngsters to sing along to as they get excited for Christmas morning. These songs don't have very much substance and are mostly just for enjoyment. "All I Want For Christmas Is My Two Front Teeth", written by 1946 by Don Gardner, tells the silly story of small child who has lost his baby teeth and can't wait for his adult teeth to emerge. A lisp is usually used when singing this song to add to the humour. Another silly Christmas song  that children love is "I'm Gettin' Nuttin' For Christmas", which a child sings when they have been naughty and believe that Santa Clause isn't going to give them anything for Christmas. This song is not meant to be serious, but a fun way for a child to tease their parents that they have been bad. "I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Clause", also from the view point of a child, is a silly song written by Tommie Connor. This song describes a child who tries to sneak a peak at his Christmas presents but ends up seeing something that is troubling to him. The child sees his mother kissing a man that the child believes to be Santa Clause, which makes for a hilarious situation. As adults, we can assess that the mother was kissing the boys father, but a child would immediately assume that it is Santa Clause.

Children also love to make up their own silly lyrics to traditional Christmas songs when they are preparing for Christmas, whether it be when they are helping their parents string lights around the house or having fun making Christmas decorations. We have all heard the version of "Rudolph The Red Nosed Reindeer" which describes him as having a shiny nose, 'like a light bulb'  and also who could forget the silly version of "Jingle Bells" which talks more about the popular 'Batman' characters than it does Christmas. 

Silly songs are meant to be enjoyed and not to be taken seriously. Children are not the only ones who need to have fun during the holidays, so remember the silly Christmas songs this year and have a barrel of laughs with your family.
