#10 ‘That’s Christmas To Me’ by Pentatonix: This music band consists of young a cappella singers and have been growing strong since 2011. They have released multiple Christmas albums, but this is the one that went double platinum. Let the song “Halleluiah” renew your faith on the Christmas miracle!
#9 ‘Home For Christmas’ by NSYNC: No, you don’t have to be a teenage girl from the 90s to appreciate Christmas songs from boy bands. It was simpler times, back when Justin Timberlake wasn’t the solo breakout star he is today. This album is sure to deliver some much-needed Christmas cheer.
#8 ‘Christmas In The Aire’ by Mannheim Steamroller: These are instrumental Christmas songs flanked by electric guitar and synthesizer. A touch of rock is just what Santa ordered!
#7 ‘When My Heart Finds Christmas’ by Harry Connick Jr.: The artist’s piercing blue eyes wasn’t the only feature that stole the hearts of young girls back in the 90s. His take on Christmas classics have been a patent favorite of people for a few decades now.
#6 ‘Barenaked For The Holidays’ by Barenaked Ladies: Sung by Canadian pop rockers, this album takes a humorous tone. It’s an album that digresses and often takes a satirical approach to some of the famous holiday traditions.
#5 ‘Christmas Eve And Other Stories’ by Trans-Siberian Orchestra: Another fine instrumental addition to one’s Christmas collection. This one takes a more dramatic tone. It’s influenced by soft metal and can be a palette cleanser from traditional light-hearted Christmas songs.
