Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree

Happy December! β˜ƒοΈ

It’s time for Christmas song posts. 😊

Are there any Christmas albums that you listened to as a child and still enjoy today?

One of my FAVORITE Christmas albums is Hanson’s Snowed In. I listened to this album OVER and OVER and OVER when I was growing up. 😁It brought me SO MUCH joy. πŸ’š

The album STILL brings me so much joy. 😍 Each time I hear it, it makes me think of how happy listening to that album when I was a kid made me. πŸ˜ƒ

One of the songs that I think is a lot of fun on that album is “Rockin’ Around The Christmas Tree.”‘

What do you think of Hanson’s version of this popular song?

One of my friends told me that I should cover Brenda Lee’s version.

Lyrics:

Rockin’ around the Christmas tree
At the Christmas party hop
Mistletoe hung where you can see
Every couple tries to stop
Rockin’ around the Christmas tree
Let the Christmas spirit ring
Later we’ll have some pumpkin pie
And we’ll do some caroling

You will get a sentimental feeling when you hear
Voices singing, let’s be jolly
Deck the halls with boughs of holly
Rockin’ around the Christmas tree
Have a happy holiday
Everyone dancin’ merrily
In the new old-fashioned way

You will get a sentimental feeling when you hear
Voices singing, let’s be jolly
Deck the halls with boughs of holly
Rockin’ around the Christmas tree
Have a happy holiday
Everyone dancin’ merrily
In the new old-fashioned way

What do you think of Brenda Lee’s version of the song?

I love her voice! This is the version I remember hearing on my mom’s Christmas albums growing up.

Both Brenda Lee and Hanson’s versions make me want to dance. πŸ’ƒπŸ» Is there a different version of this song that you enjoy? Please share it in the comment box below. πŸ™‚

I haven’t done a cover of “Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree” yet because it’s not in the public domain. However, I will leave you with a different Christmas carol cover. πŸŽ„

Wishing you well! πŸ’™

  1. I’d never heard the Hanson version and I really liked it!
    When I was growing up, there were a couple xmas albums we listened to…Johnny Mathis and Ray Conniff Singers. I ended up buying the CDs when I was an adult so I could enjoy the feeling of nostalgia πŸ™‚

    • I’m so glad that I was able to introduce you to a cover of it you hadn’t heard before and that you enjoyed it, Dawn! Thank you for sharing the Christmas albums you enjoyed as a kid and still do as an adult! I will have to check out those albums! β€οΈπŸ’š
