A lot of these songs are easy tunes to learn on the piano and guitar so it allows for people to come together and all sing along.
There is also moving Christmas music which speaks more closely to the soul. Songs like Joy to the World and O Holy Night remind us why we celebrate Christmas in the first place.

It makes us feel grateful, joyous, and sometimes makes us tear up. These songs are an important reason why Christmas music makes us feel so happy.
Importantly, Christmas music just taps into our nostalgia. When music speaks about Santa Clause, we think about our Christmas mornings when we wake up to presents under the tree.

When we hear about God’s generosity, we think about our family prayers before Christmas meals giving thanks for all our blessings.
