I don’t know about you but me, my family and the folks over East Hills Subaru love the Holidays! In fact, we love them so much we made a whole list of ten of the best holiday songs for road trips. I mean really, who doesn’t love road trips during the holidays? Sometimes it feels like we live on the road from Novemebr through January 1st anyhow, so why not make it fun right? Traveling with kids is already stressful, and if we can lighten the mood for everyone’s sake, and it just happens to be by music, then I’m down for it. So let’s check out these songs, and make sure to add them to your playlist in the next couple of weeks.
Here Comes Santa Clause
This has got to be a childhood favorite – of the nation? Who doesn’t know the lyrics to this classic Christmas Carol?
“Batman Smells?” There are so many renditions of this classic that it’s hard not to sing all year ’round. Am I the only one who does that?
Feliz Navidad a.ka. We Wish You a Merry Christmas
I learned this awesome song in Spanish first, and then English. I love it in either language!
Deck the Halls
I know these are all classics, but really, they’re so much fun. And when you watch the kids making up their own words – it’s priceless and timeless.
Rudold the Red Nosed Reindeer
Come on, you can’t even say it without singing it! Not to mention it teaches the kids a valuable lesson on inclusion no matter what differences we each may have.
Let it Snow, Let it Snow, Let it Snow
But please not too much, so we can still see the road and not slip and slide everywhere! Right? No? Just me?
Holly Jolly Christmas
And really whatever other holiday you celebrate. We’re all brothers and sisters, and ’tis the season to be jolly right?
Santa Clause is Coming to Town
And if the kids aren’t on their jolliest behavior, we can always threaten them with this song!
You’re a Mean One, Mr. Grinch
So, then, uhm…after we threaten them with Santa coming to town, they’ll be telling us we’re mean! Okay, I see how this road trip is going now!
Frosty the Snowman
I don’t know what to think of this song honestly, it’s more like a song of renewal, new beginnings, because after this winter, Frosty, will be back next year right?
