There are a ton of things that we can't agree on around the Holidays.  When to put up the tree and lights.  Politics.  Christmas music.  Just to name a few.  It also seems that when it comes to what time is best to start playing Christmas Music, the topic is up for debate.  According to a recent survey by FinanceBuzz, 50.06% of Americans say that you should start listening to Christmas music after Thanksgiving.

But we are full-on into holiday mode now, with Christmas on top of us tomorrow.  So let's dissect the Christmas Music just a bit further.  We all have our favorite holiday tunes. The modern classic "Do They Know It's Christmas" from Band-Aid is always in high rotation around my house.

And a Christmas season isn't complete without hearing "Christmas in Hollis" from Run-DMC.

But just what is the king of the hill when it comes to Christmas songs in New York State?

Well, there's a study for that.  FinanaceBuzz did a study that was based on 5 years’ worth of Google trends search data for Billboard’s top 25 highest-charting holiday songs from Christmas week 2020.  What did they find?  Let's take a look.

The top 10 most popular Christmas songs from Christmas week 2020 were:

  1. Feliz Navidad
  2. Let It Snow! Let It Snow! Let It Snow!
  3. Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer
