15 Christmas Hymns To Fill Your Heart With The Holiday Spirit

Thanksgiving is finally in the rear-view, which means it’s now socially acceptable to get yin the Christmas spirit! So go ahead and decorate the tree, cover the front yard in colorful lights, and burn all the cedar-scented candles you’d like. (No one will judge you.) But if you really want to get in the Christmas spirit, it’s time to hit play on all those old familiar Christmas hymns you’ve been waiting to hear — the ones that bring you instant joy and send you straight back to your childhood.

Sure, songs about Old Saint Nick may get you in the mood to sing, but there’s nothing quite like classic Christmas hymns and carols, which speak to the true meaning of the holiday in all the right ways. From “Oh, Holy Night” to “Come, All Ye Faithful,” these hymns celebrate where it all began — with the birth of Jesus, in a little town called Bethlehem.
