had a very shiny nose.
And if you ever saw him,
you would even say it glows.”

Deck the halls

“Deck the hall with boughs of holly
Fa la la la la, la la la la
‘Tis the season to be jolly
Fa la la la la, la la la la
Don we now our gay apparel
Fa la la, la la la, la la la
Troll the ancient yuletide carol
Fa la la la la, la la la la”

Jingle all the way
Oh, what fun it is to ride
In a one horse open sleigh
Jingle bells, jingle bells
Jingle all the way
Oh, what fun it is to ride
In a one horse open sleigh”

You better not cry
Better not pout
I’m telling you why
Santa Claus is coming to town
He’s making a list
And checking it twice;”

Frosty the snowman

This is a story about a snow who comes to life as a result of magic. This is a heart-warming story for kids. After coming to life, Frosty plays with the children that built him. But unfortunately, as the days get warmer, Frosty starts to melt.

“Frosty the snowman was a jolly happy soul,
With a corncob pipe and a button nose
and two eyes made out of coal.
Frosty the snowman is a fairy tale, they say,
He was made of snow but the children
know how he came to life one day.”

The 12 days of Christmas

This is a very enjoyable song for kids as it teaches counting and memory skills. This song is about getting 12 different gifts on the 12 days of Christmas. It is very fun because of its repetition and fun gifts.

My true love sent to me
A partridge in a pear tree”

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”
