Now that the holidays have begun, it is time to finalize your holiday road trip plans, make lists for packing, shipping things (think gifts) ahead of time and planning what to do while driving. Of course there will be tablets, radio, satellite radio, books, simple crafts and more but today lets talk about holiday road trip songs the family can sing or wail together. LOL. From holiday themed songs to best road trip songs, there is something for everyone.
Christmas Holiday Road Trip Songs
Little Saint Nick by The Beach Boys
This is a fun one for the entire family. Imagine St. Nick speeding through neighborhoods to deliver presents in a 4 speed? That image alone is hilarious. This song will make for funny conversation because kids are sure to ask questions like “what happened to Santa’s sleigh?” and “where are the reindeer?”. Search for a kid version to play on the car ride.
Grandma Got Run Over By A Reindeer by Elmo & Patsy
Make it fun because you don’t want to scare the kiddos into thinking grandma is really hurt. This one brings all the laughs. Go ahead and make up a quirky story to go with it.
Fairytale of New York by The Pogues
Set in winter in New York City, the song is great to drive to. Change up some of the lyrics to make it funnier for kids.
More fun holiday road trip songs to enjoy on your next trip. FYI, my family and I sing holiday songs all year long. They bring fun to long trips on the road for sure. We may even open a present or two along the way. Hooray for Christmas any time of the year.
