‘Tis the season where you can’t go anywhere without hearing Christmas songs. Some people love them. Others might be a little more Grinch-like in their attitude to these festive tunes. The thing that’s surprising is that so many of the most famous Christmas songs are more than 70 years old. We say the best Christmas music came out of the 1940s and 1950s.

The 1940s introduced classics like “Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer” and “White Christmas.” The 1950s added more holiday hits like “Santa Baby” and “Frosty the Snowman.” These are only a few of the songs to come out of this great era. Click below to see our evidence that the ’40s and ’50s are the undisputed champs of Christmas music, and let us know what you think in the comments.

We hope you enjoy this nostalgic look back at some of our favorite seasonal music. For more like this, follow the Greatest Generation on Twitter and Facebook.
