Yay! Christmas Day is finally here, and once you've managed to crawl out from under the mounds of wrapping paper and presents, there's really nothing better than throwing on a little Christmas music to sing with the family.

Of course, some songs are much more fun for kids than others, particularly the ones that have to do with Santa. But even though that's the part of Christmas little ones get most excited about, it's also important to teach them why we're really celebrating today -- and that's why it's good to incorporate some carols that tell the story of baby Jesus' birth as well.


Here's a list of 20 songs that make up the ultimate Christmas playlist for kids. Turn 'em on, sing away, and have some fun!
