6 Romantic Christmas Songs to Listen to This Season

Mariah Carey's Christmas music makes us want to snuggle.
For couples, every day can be filled with romance. But at Christmas time, hearts seem to grow a little bigger and beat a little faster. Now that all your shopping is done, whip up a batch of hot cocoa and cozy up by the fireplace with your special someone for some alone time-and we have just the soundtrack to make your night even more special.

"Winter Wonderland" - Later on, we'll conspire / As we dream by the fire / To face unafraid the plans that we've made / Walking in a winter wonderland

Despite its chilly, snowy subject matter, this old standard never fails to give folks the warm fuzzies. And the part about "Parson Brown" the snowman marrying the song's couple might inspire some fellas to pop the question! There are plenty of good versions of this song, but some of our favorites were recorded by Bing Crosby, Darlene Love, and Eurythmics.

"All I Want For Christmas Is You," Mariah Carey - I just want you for my own / More than you could ever know / Make my wish come true / All I want for Christmas is you

Even though this new Christmas classic seems to be about an unrequited love or missing someone who's away during the holidays, the sentiment is still perfect for very together couples. So snuggle together and thank Santa for bringing you together!

"Christmas Eve," Celine Dion
- Walkin' with you in a winter's snow / Kissin' underneath the mistletoe / People smiling everywhere we go / It's Christmas Eve and they can see we're in love

This tune has kind of a similar theme to that of Mariah's song, with the basic message that lovers don't need anything for Christmas but each other. But just like Christmas is the time for love, it's also the time for musical divas! There's certainly room for more than one on your list.

"Christmas Is The Time To Say I Love You," Billy Squier - Christmas is the time to say "I love you" / Share the joys of laughter and good cheer / Christmas is the time to say "I love you" / And a feeling that will last all through the year

For those couples who like to rock out during the holidays, this is just the song. And it serves as a reminder to keep the joy and love of Christmas in your hearts all year long.

"This Christmas," Donny Hathaway - Presents and cards are here / My world is filled with cheer and you / This Christmas / And as I look around / Your eyes outshine the town, they do / This Christmas / Fireside is blazing bright / We're caroling through the night

A wonderful '70s R&B song that's now considered a Christmas classic, this one will really get you in the mood for love. If you're looking for a more modern version, Christina Aguilera and Destiny's Child are just two artists who have covered it. (You're best to steer clear of the Chris Brown version...he doesn't exactly conjure up romantic feelings!)

"Merry Christmas, Darling," The Carpenters - I wish you Merry Christmas / Happy New Year, too / I've just one wish on this Christmas Eve / I wish I were with you If you just can't be together during the holidays, why not call up your special someone and serenade him or her over the phone with this lovely holiday gem? This song is also just fine for you couples who do get to spend Christmas together, because it will make you appreciate how lucky you are to be in each other's arms.
