Another popular Christmas song is “White Christmas.” Originally written by Irving Berlin and popularized by Bing Crosby, this timeless ballad has become a staple of the holiday season. Its evocative lyrics and beautiful melody capture the essence of the season, making it a favorite among many.

We can’t write about classics and not mention “Silent Night“, the Christmas song that has been around for many years, and was one of our Christmas Songs Explained.

The song is a beautiful and peaceful ode to the night when Jesus was born, and it is often sung in churches and homes on Christmas Eve.
