C Magazines Top 10 Winter Holiday Songs

The C Mag staff ranks popular holiday songs

10. Carol of the Bells

I’ve always loved this song, I think maybe because it’s so different from every other Christmas song you hear. I like most of those too, but there’s something about ‘Carol of the Bells’ that just hits different, as the kids say.”

— Brian Wilson, teacher advisor


9. Winter Wonderland

I really like Winter Wonderland because I think all the verses are adorable. How the singer and the other person walk around and talk about everything is really cute.”

— Alice Sheffer, sophomore


8. Jingle Bell Rock

I’ve always loved Jingle Bell Rock because of its scene in Mean Girls, and every year it just brings the Christmas energy up.”

— Sarah Sheaffer, senior


7. Let it Snow

I really love the song ‘Let it Snow’ because it is very nostalgic for me. The song remind me of the winter season and everything that comes along with the holidays!”

— Katelyn Pegg, junior


6. Last Christmas

I like Last Christmas because it’s a song everyone can sing along to, and channels the Christmas feeling while also talking about love and loss.”

— Sophia Zhang, sophomore


5. Feliz Navidad

It’s hype!”

— Anika Raffle, junior


4. It’s Beginning to look a lot like Christmas

I love this song because it gets me in the Christmas spirit. When I hear it I know that the holidays are coming.”

— Gin Williams, junior


3. Dredial

The dreidel song holds a lot of nostalgia for me because whenever I would go to my grandma’s house for Channukah parties we would always sing it and play dreidel.”

— Zeke Morrison, senior


2. Mistletoe

Mistletoe just has this nostalgia associated with it from my childhood and Bieber is so vocally talented. I also think that the lyrics are very catchy and thoughtful.”

— Mary Henderson, senior


1.  All I Want For Christmas Is You

It’s a classic and it’s nostalgic to me since I’ve listened to it since I was a kid so it reminds me of a lot of my childhood.”

— Disha Manayilakath, junior

2022-2023 Staff Writer 2023-2024 Managing Editor I joined C Mag because there are so many creative opportunities when writing and designing articles. I've loved journalism since the first time I wrote an article because it gives me the opportunity to share peoples' perspectives and stories through writing. This year, I think I am going to have the most fun writing culture stories about interesting people. Outside of school, I spend most of my time rowing and reading and writing with my cats. Though I'm not sure what I want to major in, I know that I want to continue writing on a publication in college and maybe beyond. I'm super hyped for this year on C Mag!
