Christmas CarolsMany traditional Christmas Carols have a specific religious context, celebrating the arrival of Jesus Christ.
Some "Christmas" songs are about winter and snow associated with the time of year.
New Year Songs
Some "Christmas" songs are about welcoming the New Year, and reminiscing about the "old" year.
Many recently popular Christmas songs, are specifically about the festive holiday spirit of Christmas, or gift-giving mood of Christmas, but are typically not overtly religious and therefore do not quite qualify as Christmas carols.

As the Philippines is a predominantly Christian country in Asia, it also has produced its own Christmas songs, both traditional and secular, as well as Filipino language versions of well known English songs.
Most of these songs traditionally started way back during Spanish era and continued to be modified by modernization.
Novelty Christmas SongsAnother form of popular Christmas song are those musical parodies performed solely for comical effect, usually classified as "Novelty songs". The best known of these include: Christmas novelty songs can involve gallows humor and even morbid humor like that found in "Christmas at Ground Zero" and "The Night Santa Went Crazy", both by "Weird Al" Yankovic. Radio personality Bob Rivers has parlayed the format into several albums in the Twisted Christmas line. Even Cheech and Chong got into the act with "Santa Claus and His Old Lady" recorded in 1971.
Christmas-Songs.Biz is inspired by the growing popularity of the Filipino Christmas song site The Maligayang Pasko Chordbook. It is envisioned to be the premier Christmas Songs portal, and spread the joys of singing Christmas songs. Christmas-Songs.biz -- from the Philippines, home of the longest Christmas celebration in the world!
The Maligayang Pasko Chordbook in turn, was inspired ( in 1998? ) by Jim Ayson's Maligayang Pasko Home Page. Many thanks to Jim, and we hope this complements the original.
