Funny Christmas songs are common and fairly popular, especially with the younger generation. However, it was not always like this. Christmas songs have a history going back centuries. In fact, back in 129 AD, a song called “Angel Hymn” was recommended by a roman Bishop to be sung at Christmas services. It was, arguably, the first “Christmas song.” Other songs were written soon afterwards, but most of them were written in Latin, something that common people couldn’t understand. Thus the songs went fairly unappreciated and sank into oblivion.

Songs matching the mood

These early songs were not really funny Christmas songs, but rather religiously inclined ones. Then in 1223, St. Francis of Assisi inaugurated his “Nativity Plays” in Italy. Though sometimes the songs were in Latin, often they were in languages that people could understand and hence join in. The popularity of Christmas songs picked up again and started spreading across Europe and beyond.

Christmas season is a season of festivities and celebrations. Funny Christmas songs simply match the mood and spirit of the happiness that’s prevalent during this time. Other types of songs also drift through the air during Christmas. There are the traditional songs, without any religious overtones, commonly known as Christmas carols. Then there are the popular songs which are based on the stories around Christmas, like Santa Clause and the reindeers. Some songs are just about the season – the snow and the cold breeze. All of them bring about a comfortable, familiar and joyful feel to the season.
