Modern Christmas carols: new momentum under the Christmas tree

At Christmas, most people still value tradition and Advent customs. As a result, Christmas treats and other popular Christmas traditions are ubiquitous a few months before Christmas Eve. In the supermarket, gingerbread and advent calendars lurk in wait for us with the first autumn leaves and radio listeners have reached their annual "Last Christmas" tolerance limit by November at the latest. But in addition to all the customs, a bit of modernity is gradually smuggling into the Christmas season - above all in the form of modern Christmas carols. We'll tell you what's behind it and which Christmas carols have what it takes to become the future Christmas song classics.

Modern Christmas carols: competition for the classics

In the past, everyone was satisfied with the well-known Christmas carols. After all, with German Christmas carols like "Süßer die Glocken" and "O Tannenbaum", the text was always guaranteed, at least in the beginning, and the whole family - from the grandchildren to the great-grandmother - happily joined in the Christmas singing fun. But soon the big stars were getting supplies, pop stars like Andrea Berg and Helene Fischer brought out Christmas albums and new Christmas carols were featured in English and German in advertising. Thanks to this ubiquity, the new Christmas carols quickly captured the ears and hearts of Christmas fans, big and small. Current Christmas carols such as "All I want for Christmas is you" or "Driving home for Christmas" have become an indispensable part of the pre-Christmas season, and Christmas parties are already permanent fixtures.

Lively Christmas party with new Christmas songs

Follow the trend at your next Christmas party or even your big Christmas ball and ensure a wide-ranging musical program that, in addition to classic Christmas carols, also offers fans of modern Christmas carols a real treat for the ears. You can achieve this on the one hand with a colorful mix of Christmas songs, but also with the right musicians - because with the Christmas sounds of a harpist, a zither player, a trumpeter or a guitarist and the appropriate support from a singer, the new Christmas songs become an acoustic poem. If the celebration is a bit bigger, a dinner band, a big band or a whole Christmas choir fit perfectly into the modern Christmas concept. Your Christmas party is guaranteed to be unforgettable and you can be sure of a full house - year after year.
