Christmas Novelty Songs

The Y! Music Playlist Blog

Christmas is such a huge holiday that it's nice not to take it too seriously once in a while. Christmas novelty songs help us do this, if only for a fleeting moment.

Many holiday-themed novelty songs have become gigantic hits in their own right. One such song, "Grandma Got Run Over By A Reindeer," has even made a whole career for Dr. Elmo, who released it over 30 years ago. It's the song that just keeps on giving for Elmo Shropshire in the form of fat royalty checks.

We all have our favorite novelty holiday songs and for this list I've included the 10 that popped into my head first. Please let us know what your favorite holiday novelty song is in the comments and I hope you include a lot of laughter in your celebrations this year!
