The Themes of Christmas Songs Lyrics

Lyricists have found many ways to write about Christmas. Although the birth of Jesus Christ is the obvious topic, the lyrics to Christmas songs have a wide range of themes, whether they are traditional Christmas tunes or popular rock, pop and jazz compositions of the last century.

These are some recurring themes you will find in these songs:

Religious Themes

This is a theme that runs through the majority of all the Christmas songs lyrics. These carols, original songs and hymns bring the news of the birth of Jesus, describe the Nativity scene, call Christians to go to Bethlehem or praise God for the coming of the Savior.

Christmas tunes with religious themes include Do You Hear What I Hear?, Silent Night, Little Drummer Boy, and Away in a Manger, as well as many hymns, either in English (Joy to the World, O Holy Night, Hark! The Herald Angels Sing) or in Latin (Adeste Fideles and Gloria In Excelsis Deo).

Home, customs & traditions

Christmas is about spending valuable time with your family, so many Christmas songs lyrics talk about the bliss of being at home or coming back home for the holidays.

Songs with such lyrics are Chestnuts Roasting on an Open Fire (The Christmas Song), I’ll Be Home For Christmas, Up on the Housetop and (There’s No Place Like) Home for the Holidays.

Santa Claus

Whether it’s Saint Nicholas himself or the mighty Reindeer pulling his sleigh, many songs refer to Santa Claus. He’s the one bringing all Christmas gifts after all, right? 😉

Some typical Christmas songs and carols talking about Santa and the crew are obviously Santa Claus is Coming to Town, Must Be Santa, Ariana Grande’s Santa Tell Me, Jolly Old Saint Nicholas and of course Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer.

Parties, Dinners & Celebrations

You can’t go far without a proper party song! From carols originally sung centuries ago to Brenda Lee and José Feliciano, the tunes in this category abound in Christmas joy. Of course, dinners and delicacies also find their way into these lyrics.

Christmas celebration & party songs include Feliz Navidad, A Holly Jolly Christmas, Jingle Bell Rock, Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree, as well as traditional carols like Deck The Halls, Gloucestershire Wassail, and Here We Come A-Wassailing.


Expressing one’s love and affection for a person is a recurring theme in Christmas songs.

Love-themed songs include All I Want for Christmas is You, Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas, and The Greatest Gift of All.

Missing something or someone/lost love

Just as Yuletide often means all types of gatherings, several songs talk about missing a place, being homesick or remembering a love that was lost and expressing heartbreaks.

Songs like those include Wham’s Last Christmas, White Christmas, Christmas Without You, the Scottish traditional Auld Lang Syne, and Blue Christmas.

Snow & Winter scenes

Snow brings the white color of Christmas and gives us material for snowmen-building.

Such winter-themed Christmas songs lyrics include Jingle Bells, Let it Snow! Let it Snow! Let it Snow!, Winter Wonderland, and Frosty the Snowman.

Peace on Earth & Helping our Fellow Man

Caring for one another, treating everyone equally and bringing peace and prosperity all over the world are common themes in Christian teachings, but also a demand in modern times.

Songs with lyrics like these include Band Aid’s Do They Know It’s Christmas?, John Lennon’s Happy Xmas (War is over), Nuttin’ For Christmas, and of course Let There Be Peace On Earth and Dona Nobis Pacem.

Other themes

Some Christmas songs lyrics have unexpected themes, sometimes making historical references, talking about musical instruments, praising plants and flowers or simply playing with words.

Good King Wenceslas and the Coventry Carol talk of a Bohemian Duke and the slaughter of Herodes, respectively.

O Christmas Tree (O Tannenbaum) and The Holly and the Ivy are tributes to the natural beauty of trees and plants.

Pat-a-pan (Willie, Take Your Little Drum), just like The Little Drummer Boy, is a drum player being called to play.

Finally, The 12 Days of Christmas is a game of word and verses, making it a true favorite for choirs and student concerts.
