Holiday Song Lyrics

The thing that I love about the holidays are the songs that are played on the radio. All the Christmas classics that make me feel all warm and fuzzy inside – best time of the year!

It wasn't until recently while visiting my parents, however, that I realized I actually don’t know any holiday songs all the way through.

I started singing the song “Have a Holly Jolly Christmas” while making breakfast. As I start flipping my pancakes, the lyrics come out of my mouth in this way: “Have a holly jolly Christmas! It’s the best time of the year…..mmmmm mmm mm mmmm mmm mmmmmmmmmmmm mmm. HA~AVE a holly jolly Christmas!” And then the cycle repeats.

4 times.

My mom, after listening in the corner for a while, suddenly asks, “Do you actually know the rest of the lyrics to that song?”


And the sad thing is, there are many other holiday songs that I don’t know all the way through, like:
  • “I’m dreaming of a White Christmas, just like the ones I used to know…..” and then what?
  • Oh the weather outside is frightful and the fire is so delightful/ and since we’ve no place to go, let it snow, let it snow, let it snow! ….” and then what?
  • “Sleigh bells ring, are you listenin’? in the lane snow is glistenin’! …..” and then what??
  • “It’s the most wonderful time of the year!!!…” yeah, I don’t know how the rest goes
  • “I’ll be home for Christmas…” that’s all I got
Am I crazy? I can’t be the only one who only memorizes a few lines in holiday songs, right?  Let me know if you actually know the complete lyrics of a holiday song!


  1. haha don't worry! i don't know all the lyrics to christmas songs too :P

  2. this is so true! Especially about the humming haha it's like you just go along with the tune!

  3. Aha I'm the same way! I know the chorus but nothing else!


  4. Haha I think this is a universal thing - Some songs I know all the way and others not at all!

  5. you have a greta blog! yes same with me ;o i can sing the chorus but that it! haha

    xx Lotte

  6. Haha this is so true! And it's the same for me. I do know a lot of Christmas songs but I don't know the lyrics of any of them, just the chorus.

  7. Ha! I genuinely laughed out loud at this... I'm exactly the same!


  8. Even though we don't celebrate Christmas in my country,when I am in shops like Marks and Spencer or other ones,I hear these Christmas songs like we are celebrating it.It's kinda awkward to me but nice to hear those too hehe

  9. I' m totally agree with you!



  10. This is too funny- and true for me, too! I know the opening lyrics of some songs, but then sort of can only hum the rest until the chorus! :)


  11. ahaha xD
    That happens to me with most songs, not only holiday's ones :p

  12. Bahaha!!! This post made me laugh so much! Sadly, I know almost all lyrics to all holiday songs. But that is because I was in show choir & honors choir in high school. It's kind of like Glee lol. So I've done like five Christmas events in a row. There are some that I don't know though! My husband is totally the same way. He knows NO lyrics so he usually just hums haha.

  13. I'm pretty sure I no none of the lyrics beyond the main chorus, pretty silly really as they are played non stop all season!

    Hmm maybe...

  14. hahahaha! Dont worry....I dont know the rest either :D
