While it seems odd that you'd need a collection of Christmas songs curated especially for kids, the surprisingly maudlin world of many holiday offerings presents a bit of a minefield for anyone looking to put together a kid-friendly playlist to emphasize the fun side of the season. Fortunately, all the heavy lifting has been done for you thanks to Traditional Kids Christmas, a collection that features the most fun numbers the holidays have to offer. With joyful tracks like Burl Ives' "A Holly Jolly Christmas," the Jackson 5's "Santa Claus Is Coming to Town," and Gene Autry's classic "Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer," this compilation is guaranteed to keep things light and upbeat while everyone opens their gifts.
