Favorite All Time Non-Religious Christmas Songs … TV Specials and Others


They just don’t make Christmas specials like they used to. Whether it be Rudolph the red Nosed Reindeer, Frosty the Snowman, The Grinch who Stole Christmas, Santa Claus is Coming to Town or A Charlie Brown Christmas, all were made from 1964 to 1970. All of these specials are timeless.

The music from these Christmas specials stick in your head all day. Whether it be Put One Foot in Front of the Other, Frosty the Snowman, Silver & Gold, or Hermey and Rudolph being “independent together” singing Couple of Misfits.

My personal favorite non-religious song of all times is Snoopy’s Christmas, Snoopy vs, the Red Baron. I believe I just dated myself. Tell us yours.

 #1: Snoopy vs. The Red Baron (Snoopy’s Christmas) by the Royal Guardsmen

Christmas bells those Christmas bells
Ringing through the land
Asking peace of all the world
And good will to man
The Baron made Snoopy fly to the right
And forced him to land behind the enemy lines
Snoopy was certain that this was the end
When the Baron cried out “Merry Christmas, my friend!”
The Baron then offered a holiday toast
And Snoopy our hero saluted his host
And then with a roar they were both on their way
Each knowing they’d meet on some other day


# 2: Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer

Actually the entire sound track to Rudolph with Burl Ives is a classic

#3: Frosty the Snowman … Jimmy Durante

Who does not love the voice of Jimmy Durante singing Frosty?

#4: Put One Foot in front of the Other from Santa Claus is Coming to Town’

 #5: A Charlie Brown Christmas – Christmas Time is Here Song

      My mom sang this to all of my babies when they were learning to walk :)

      My favorite Non-religious Christmas song ever- Rockin around the Christmas tree. No one in the world has a voice as distinct as that!

      Well, for me the Christmas season does not start until I hear Same Old Lang Syne by Dan Fogelberg. I also love Happy X-Mas by John Lennon and Wonderful Christmas Time by Paul McCartney.

      I Want A Hippopatamus for Christmas! But…it changes every year that’s the great thing about Christmas songs, there are so many. Last year it was “Cat with yellow green eyes”, don’t remember the movie, but couldn’t get the song out of my head.

      I never heard the Snoopy Red Baron song until last year…cool song!

      One of my favorite non-religious songs around Christmas is “Let It Snow” and “Rockin Around The Christmas Tree”

      My favorite Christmas show is probably “Frosty the Snowman”

      I LOVE the RED BARON, too !!!!!!!!!!!! I also love What Child Is This. I read that Henry VIII composed the melody and his song was called My Lady Greensleeves….the lady was Anne Boleyn. Amazon sells his tunes on cds…. Oh dear, hope I haven’t spoiled the moment bringing up poor Annie… Henry was a very gifted composer…and yes I did buy his cds. Now I may go buy the Red Baron.

      Obviously, This was a long time past my childhood. It is again from the 70′s. The whole story was one of the Christmas programs my children watched again and again.
