The Christmas season is fast approaching and there are only a few weeks left until Christmas. While some people debate how early it is appropriate to celebrate Christmas, one of the best ways to get ready for the holidays is by listening to music. Here is a list of some of the best modern Christmas carols to celebrate the holiday.

Aptly titled “Almost Too Early for Christmas,” Jimmy Fallon and Dolly Parton released this song on November 4th, 2022. In the song, Parton and Fallon sing about wanting to start celebrating Christmas even though it’s still fall.

“It’s almost too early for Christmas/ Too early to sing that song/ There’s still Halloween decorations/ And haters will say it’s wrong/ Let’s turn on the lights for Mariah/ Tell Rudolph to have his.” Shine your nose/ It’s almost too early for Christmas/ But why do we see how it goes”, the two sing in the chorus of the song.

On October 28, 2022, Alicia Keys released “December Back 2 June” as the lead single from her Christmas album santa baby.

The original song is both a Christmas song and a love song, with Keys singing about how fun it is to celebrate Christmas with her partner. However, Keys also admits that her partner’s love is enough for her “any season” of the year.

“For this Christmas (Yeah) I don’t need no wishes (Yeah)/ Not since I met you (Yeah, a-no-no-no, it’s just Christmas time, yeah)/ Any time of the year (What?) I will.” Giving reason to love you (What?) / From December back to June, uh, uh, uh,” Keys sings.

Originally released in the 1940s, “Baby, It’s Cold Outside” is a popular Christmas carol. It has been covered and re-released numerous times over the years.

In 2014, Idina Menzel and Michael Bublé released a cover of the song on Menzel’s 2014 Christmas album holiday wishes.

Menzel and Bublé’s version of “Baby, It’s Cold Outside” is considered one of the more modern versions of the song, as the two artists changed some of the lyrics to eliminate some of the original’s outdated connotations.

Singer Ariana Grande released the song “Santa Tell Me” in 2014. Although the song is only a few years old, it is on the way to becoming a classic Christmas carol.

In “Santa Tell Me,” Grande asks Santa if her new love interest loves her enough to be around until next year’s holiday season.

“Santa tell me if you’re really there/ Don’t make me fall in love again/ If he’s not here next year/ Santa tell me if he really cares/ ‘Cause I can’t give it all away/ If he won’t be here next year,” Grande sings on “Santa Tell Me.”

Christmas is Mariah Carey’s season and everyone just lives in it. Carey released All I Want for Christmas Is You in 1994, and it’s been a staple of the holiday season ever since.

The song inevitably gains popularity each year as the holiday season approaches, and it’s a modern Christmas classic.
