What’s the most popular Christmas song?

mostpopularchristmassongs

It’s no contest, Time reports.

The magazine has made the egg nog and crunched the numbers of  digitized registrations at the Copyright Office and data on every Christmas album recorded since 1978.

“Silent Night” takes the top spot with 733 copyrighted recordings since then. With only 391 recordings, “Joy to the World,” is number 2. ”O Holy Night” is in the third spot with 374 recordings.

On the other end of the spectrum, “I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus” has only 19 recordings.

You won’t find “God Rest Ye Merry, Gentlemen.” Christmas songs not under copyright aren’t counted.
