The Best Pop Christmas Songs Of All Time

List Rules
Only Christmas pop songs.

Pop music and Christmas were made for each other. It just makes sense that some of the world's most popular music goes well with one of the world's most popular holidays. As such, pop artists have been laying down pop Christmas songs since the dawn of the recorded music industry, and each year, fans are blessed with enough new Christmas music to fill Santa's sleigh. This list aims to determine the best pop Christmas songs ever, many of which stand among the most popular Christmas songs of all. 

Among the most popular pop Christmas songs are current pop artists in 2019, like Ariana Grande, Katy Perry, and Lady Gaga, as well as old pop stars and pop groups, like John Lennon and the Jackson 5. In addition to the great original Christmas pop songs on this list, such as Wham!'s "Last Christmas," pop music superstars like Justin Bieber and Christina Aguilera have made some of the best pop Christmas cover songs. And, just like any good Christmas pop song playlist, Mariah Carey makes several appearances here (don't worry, we included her classic Christmas pop song, "All I Want for Christmas is You").

What is the best pop Christmas song of all time? Who do you think did the best pop Christmas cover song ever? Vote up your favorite Christmas pop songs, and vote down the ones that you think are too cheesy.
