Celebrate the Holidays All Year Long With the Best Christmas Albums of All Time

Sleigh bells ring. Are you listening? We are! Christmas is hands down one of our favorite holidays. There's a special kind of magic in the air and in our hearts during the holiday season. We are more joyful, more giving, and extra nice — and it seems like everyone is in a hurry to get the Christmas season started. Before Halloween, stores like Costco already have Christmas decorations for sale and the infamous Macy's in New York hopes to have its iconic holiday window displays up by Thanksgiving.

Christmas means so much to us. We even have an entire genre of music for it, which makes it pretty easy for us to get into the holiday spirit. Like Buddy says in the movie Elf, "The best way to spread Christmas cheer is singing loud for all to hear." So grab a cup of hot chocolate and get cozy as we share the best Christmas albums of all time.
