Stories and Songs

The words of Christmas song lyrics can range from traditional, religious, humorous to the complete bizarre! The music which accompanies the songs can range from solemn to romantic to unbelievably quirky! An example of all of these types of Christmas songs and music have been included for your enjoyment. We have also tried to include some unusual graphics to compliment the Christmas songs and music. After all, the imagery that accompanies our view of Santa Claus in a red and white outfit, enhanced by the lyrics to Christmas songs, was only introduced in the last century - prior to that time he was depicted in all sorts of colours! Christmas songs without the mention of reindeers and snow just would not be the same, however, these concepts were only introduced following the publication of "Twas the night before Christmas"! All of us here at Phoenix hope you enjoy the nostalgia of the Christmas songs and music that you will find in the following pages!
