There can be some confusion as to what atheists do on Christmas. Typically we decorate trees, have wonderful food, drink and conversations with friends and family, exchange presents and often listen to the wonderful music we grew up with. The following are some of my favorites, and if you’re in my generation, likely many of yours as well.
Bing Crosby and the Andrew Sisters – Jingle Bells (1943)
Clips of this high tempo classic has been played in movies such as A Christmas Story.
Johnny Mathis – Winter Wonderland (1958)
Great story telling in this song. Take a magical walk in the Winter Wonderland.
Judy Garland – Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas (1944)
After returning from the tornado in Kansas to Meet Me in St. Louis, Judy Garland introduced this great song.
Burl Ives – Rudolf the Red Nosed Reindeer (1964)
Great rendition and immortalized in the classic TV special
Nat King Cole – The Christmas Song (1961)
A definite classic and a favorite Christmas song of many
Elvis Presley – Blue Christmas (1957)
Just figured I’d include something from an obscure artist you probably never heard of.
Eartha Kitt – Santa Baby! (1953)
Julie Newmar is my favorite Catwoman, but Eartha Kitt owns this classic.
Brenda Lee – Rockin Around the Christmas Tree (1958)
Beautiful song featured in the movie Home Alone.
Bobby Helms - Jingle Bell Rock (1957)
Another upbeat classic.
Frank Sinatra - Let it snow (1950)
Great voice, great band, great fun
Wham! – Last Christmas (1985)
Throwing in an 80s classic as it is the best rendition of this song.
I hope these selections brightened your day. Have a wonderful Christmas.
