Santa's Favorite Christmas Carols

This morning we were in the study going over the Christmas list with Santa, since he has to begin reveiwing the nice and naughty list as soon as possible. Elmir the smaller of our elvin cousins, asked Santa, since he himself had this particular Christmas tune in his head and could not for the life of himself stop humming it, what Santa's favorite Christmas carols were. After rubbing his beard for a while, here is the list he came up which since he said naming just one just wouldn't do. So gather round the tree, or fireplace, or living room and sing these tunes, they are sure to bring joy to all of your hearts.


City sidewalks, busy sidewalks
dressed in holiday style.
In the air there's a
feeling of Christmas.
Children laughing, people passing,
meeting smile after smile,
And on ev'ry street
corner you hear:

CHORUS: Silver bells, silver bells,
It's Christmas time in the city.
Ring-a-ling, hear them ring,
Soon it will be Christmas day.

Strings of street lights, even stoplights,
blink a bright red and green

As the shoppers rush home with
their treasures.
Hear the snow crunch, see the kids bunch,
this is Santa's big scene,
And above all this bustle you hear:


Dashing through the snow
In a one-horse open sleigh,
o'er the fields we go,
Laughing all the way;
Bells on bobtail ring,
Making spirits bright;
What fun it is to ride and sing,
A sleighing song tonight!

CHORUS: Jingle Bells! Jingle Bells!
Jingle all the way!
Oh, what fun it is to ride
In a one-horse open sleigh!

Day or two ago
I thought I'd take a ride,
And soon Miss Fannie Bright
Was seated by my side.

he horse was lean and lank,
Misfortune seem'd his lot,
He got into a drifted bank,
And we, we got upsot:


Now the ground is white,
Go it while you're young;
Take the girls tonight,
And sing this sleighing song;
Just get a bobtailed nag,
Two forty for his speed,
Then hitch him to an open sleigh,
And crack! you'll take the lead.


Here we come a-caroling
Among the leaves so green;
Here we come a-wand'ring,
So fair to be seen:

CHORUS: Love and joy come to you,
And to you glad Christmas too;
And God bless you and send you
a happy New Year,
And Good send you a happy New Year.

We are not daily beggars
That beg from door to door;
But we are neighbors
Whom you have seen before:


Good master and mistress,
As you sit by the fire,
Pray think of us poor children,
Who wander in the mire:


God bless the master of this house,
Likewise the mistress, too,
And all the little children,
That round the table go:


Santa Lying

Silent night! Holy night!
All is calm, all is bright,
Round yon Virgin Mother and Child.
Holy Infant, so tender and mild.
Sleep in heavenly peace,
Sleep in heavenly peace.

Silent night! Holy night!
Shepherds quake at the sight;
Glories stream from heaven afar,
Heav'nly host sing, Alleluia,
Christ, the Savior is born!
Christ the Savior is born!

Silent night! Holy night!
Son of God, love's pure light,
Radiant beams from Thy holy face,
With the dawn of redeeming grace,
Jesus, Lord, at Thy birth,
Jesus, Lord at Thy birth.

Up on the house-top reindeer pause,
Out jumps good old Santa Claus;
Down through the chimney with lots
of toys,
All for the little ones, Christmas joys.

Ho, ho, ho! who wouldn't go!
Ho, ho, ho! who wouldn't go!
Up on the house-top click, click, click,
Down through the chimney with
old Saint Nick.
