100 Greatest Traditional Christmas Songs

Criteria: Chosen for ongoing popularity, impact, importance, and strong association with the holiday. "Traditional" is defined as encompassing all pre-rock styles of popular music; Christmas songs include both religious and secular songs as well as songs about winter which are associated with the festive season.

Note: In some cases, more than one year is provided because
of notable re-recordings of the song by the same artist.
