He sees you when you’re sleeping, so be good for goodness sake
Winter Wonderland
I saw Mummy kissing Santa Claus
Rudolf the red nosed reindeer
(If you ever saw him, you would even say it glows
Won’t you fly my sleigh tonight?
You’ll go down in history)
“We’ll pretend it’s Parson Brown”
Here comes Santa Claus
Jingle Bells
Oh what fun it is to sing, a sleighing song tonight
Jingle Bells, Rudolph smells...
Or Jingle Bells, shotgun shells, Santa Claus is dead
Rudolph got a .22 and shot him in the head
White Christmas

CHRISTMAS CAROLS
Away in a manger
Deck the halls
Ding dong merrily on high
God rest ye merry gentlemen
Good King Wenceslas
Hark! The herald angels sing
The holly and the ivy
In the bleak midwinter
Joy to the world
(“the lord is come/ let Earth receive her King/ Let every heart, prepare him room, and Heaven and Nature sing...)_
Let it snow
Little donkey
O Little Town Of Bethlehem
Rocking around the Christmas tree
Silent Night
On the twelfth day of Christmas (My truelove gave to me....)
We wish you a Merry Christmas
We three kings of Orient are...
While shepherds watched their flocks

...And the brilliant Santa Brand Guideline Book by Quietroom
