With Christmas approaching, many are caroling or listening to their favorite holiday songs. There is a big debate about which albums are the best albums to listen to over the holiday season. After questioning many people the results were clear. The top four albums were Justin Bieber’s Under the Mistletoe, Mariah Carey’s Merry Christmas, Nat “King” Cole’s song in Christmas Song Expanded Edition, and Michael Buble’s Christmas.

The best way to celebrate and engage in the festive spirit is to dance and sing. “The best way to spread Christmas cheer is to sing loud for all to hear” from Elf comes into play. With the top albums by Bieber, Carey, and Buble, many know every word to the songs. Seniors Emma Grace and Sarah Klug both voted for Under the Mistletoe, the album by Justin Bieber, Emma said that her favorite song on the album is “Under the Mistletoe” and that she can listen to on repeat for hours.

Senior Annarose Alemayehu voted that her favorite album was the Christmas Song Expanded Edition, and her number one song on it was by Nat “King” Cole. Although Cole has his own album The Magic of Christmas, Annarose still believes that the album with various artists is better. Many artists make collaborations for the holidays or join in on albums that contain various artists, creating an even better selection for Christmas songs.

These are all albums that are older but definitely still great to listen to. They are by well-known artists and are sung in a way that is unique with each artists different singing style.
