More than a gift-wrapped box or a tall green tree, Santa Claus is the unquestioned symbol of both Christmas and the holidays season. The white-haired, red robe-wearing jolly old man, as the story goes, brings gifts to children all over the world in one night. Packing everything up in his sleigh, he hops from roof to roof, chimney to chimney, delivering the goodies.

So, we here at American Songwriter Magazine thought, why not celebrate the good ol’ guy who has done so much for us? I still remember that Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle figure I got when I was seven, and gosh was I grateful! So, here’s to you Santa, we’re sure you’ll love at least nine of these songs!
