4) “Winter Song” by Celine Dion
If you are having a rough time this year, heed inspiration on the vocal prowess of another incredible artist, Celine Dion. The Winter Song is an original Sara Bareilles and Ingrid Michaelson soft mellow ballad, but the French songstress has always covered songs with such passion and grace. This holiday embrace the song as you relate to the loss this song kind of imbibed! The My heart will go on singer herself, is having her first Christmas without her late husband who has passed away early this year. Be reminded to be strong with this song.

6) “All I Want For Christmas Is You” by Fifth Harmony
Just because the now famous 5 piece girl group, Fifth Harmony had a bitter end to their 2016, let’s not take the bad feelings this holiday. And even Camila’s sudden decision to leave the group broke every Harmonizer’s heart, there’s nothing all you want for Christmas but to have them together again in 2017 and many years to come! To give good vibes, here’s their 2014 version of Mariah’s All I Want For Christmas Is You!
7) “Mistletoe” by Justin Bieber
Now, who is watching this young Justin Bieber Christmas song at 2016? You are! While Bieber is a young man now, and he hasn’t released a Christmas song this year, his 2011 “It’s the most beautiful time of the year…” lyric tune will remind us of that Belieber craze! But regardless, this song is a beautiful holiday jam to listen to.
8) “Santa Tell Me” by Ariana Grande
We have the Lambs for Mariah Carey, Beliebers for Justin Bieber, and Harmonizers for Fifth Harmony, now this list also includes a Christmas song for the Arianators! Let Ariana Grande’s Santa Tell Me (2014) holiday love song melt your heart with its emotional pop song like that of Wham’s Last Christmas song.
9) “Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas” by Sam Smith
Of course! While we haven’t had Sam Smith songs on the radio this 2016, then we hope his powerful 2014 rendition of “Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas” can cheer up the hugot season. Because seriously, the British Latch singer gets the hopeless romantics and the SMPs (Samahan ng Malalamig ang Pasko) feel wanted!
10) “This Christmas” by Chris Brown
Remember the days when Chris Brown and Rihanna are still together? Well, this Chris Brown holiday song will remind you of that! This Christmas will make you feel what you miss more this year, your home. So, let Chris Brown get you on a holiday groove with his 2010 song.
11) “Baby It’s Cold Outside” by Idina Menzel and Michael Buble
Baby It’s Cold Outside is a flirty holiday song once you get to focus on the lyrics but the tune itself can make you sway and is super catchy! And Idina Menzel’s version with Michael Buble gives this song justice!
