Silly Christmas Carols

Silly Christmas carols are one of the most common forms of Christmas humor. Any Christmas carol or song lends itself well to song parody, because everyone knows the melody and the original words. Song parody is good old-fashioned homemade fun, especially when you add to the songs so that the end result is something unique to your own family.

Why Turn Christmas Carols into Silly Ditties?
Rudolph the red-nosed reindeer was one of the first Christmas figures to be characterized by silly verbiage, but he wasn't the only one and he won't be the last. Sharing a laugh is one of the ways that we share our love with others. Poking fun at people's traits or shared holiday frustrations through rewritten Christmas carols is a great way to spend time together and create memories that last a lifetime.

Classic Silly Christmas Carols and Songs
While just about any Christmas carol can be transformed from the religious or honorable to the silly and humorous, some Christmas songs don't need any help to rank among the silliest Christmas songs of all time. 

  • "Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer" (pretty silly, but kids of all ages love it)
  • "The Twelve Days of Christmas" (one of the most-parodied songs ever written)
  • "Grandma Got Run Over by a Reindeer"
  • "All I Want for Christmas is My Two Front Teeth" (a great way to tease the child in your family who has just lost his or her front teeth)
  • "Jingle Bells" (not all that silly until you start messing with the lyrics, but then it can be a real riot)

Some Silly Christmas Carol Song Parodies
The following verses are taken from silly Christmas carol parodies and should be viewed in the content in which they were intended: fun, fun and more fun! Christmas humor is intended to lighten the holiday and keep spirits high as the most wonderful day of the year arrives, often with a variety of stresses in tow. If the following verses don't suit your tastes, try your own hand at composing a silly Christmas carol that characterizes your family, your best friend, or, as in the case of "Jingle Bells," your hero.

Jingle Bells

Jingle Bells, Batman smells
Robin laid an egg
The Batmobile has lost a wheel
And the Joker got a-waaaay!

The Twelve Days of Christmas

The first day of Christmas can be very hard on me
Searching for the fullest, bestest ever Christmas tree

On the second day of Christmas whatever did I see
But two chubby squirrels
Living in my fullest bestest ever Christmas tree

On the third day of Christmas what else did I see
Three baby skunks
Two chattering squirrels
All living in my fullest bestest ever Christmas tree

On the fourth day of Christmas what else did I see
Four turkeys goggling
Three baby skunks
Two chattering squirrels
All living in my fullest bestest ever Christmas tree

On the fifth day of Christmas what else did I see
Five pokey porcupines!
Four turkeys gobbling
Three baby skunks
Two chattering squirrels
All living in my fullest bestest ever Christmas tree
