Lagu mana saja yang bisa Anda nyanyikan. Berikut adalah lima lagu Natal bahasa Inggris yang terkenal dan sesuai untuk keluarga dari anak-anak sampai orang dewasa.
 
1. Jingle Bells
Ini mungkin merupakan lagu Natal yang paling terkenal di dunia. Dengan irama yang penuh semangat dan lirik yang menarik, banyak orang menyukai lagu ini. Berikut liriknya:

Oh! Jingle bells, jingle bells, jingle all the way
Oh, what fun it is to ride in a one horse open sleigh
Jingle bells, jingle bells, jingle all the way
Oh, what fun it is to ride in a one horse open sleigh
Dashing through the snow
On a one horse open sleigh
O’er the fields we go
Laughing all the way
Bells on bobtail ring
Making spirits bright
What fun it is to ride and sing
A sleighing song tonight

 
2. We Wish you a Merry Christmas
Lagu ini tak kalah terkenalnya dengan Jingle Bells. Lagu ini sebenarnya sudah ada cukup lama, yaitu sejak abad ke-16. Menakjubkan bukan! Yuk, kita nyanyikan lagunya bersama-sama:

We wish you a Merry Christmas; We wish you a Merry Christmas;
We wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year

Good tidings we bring to you and your kin;
Good tidings for Christmas and a Happy New Year.

Oh, bring us a figgy pudding; Oh, bring us a figgy pudding;
Oh, bring us a figgy pudding and a cup of good cheer

We won’t go until we get some; We won’t go until we get some;
We won’t go until we get some, so bring some out here

We wish you a Merry Christmas; We wish you a Merry Christmas;
We wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

 
3. Rudolph The Red-Nosed Reindeer
Lagu ini menceritakan tentang seekor rusa berhidung merah yang sering diejek oleh rusa-rusa lainnya karena ia berbeda sendiri. Namun, pada akhirnya Rudolf si Rusa Berhidung Merah ini malah dipilih oleh Sinterklas untuk memimpin kelompok rusa penarik kereta Sinterklas.

You know Dasher and Dancer and Prancer and Vixen,
you know Comet and Cupid and Donner and Blitzen,
But do you recall
The most famous reindeer of all

Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer
Had a very shiny nose
And if you ever saw it
You would even say it glows
All of the other reindeer
Used to laugh and call him names
They never let poor Rudolph
Join in any reindeer games

Then one foggy Christmas Eve,
Santa came to say,
Rudolph with your nose so bright,
Won’t you guide my sleigh tonight

Then how all the reindeer loved him,
As they shouted out with glee,
Rudolph the red-nose Reindeer
You’ll go down in history

 
4. Santa Claus is Coming to Town
Sinterklas datang ke kota! Apakah kamu sudah menjadi anak baik sepanjang tahun? Semoga saja, karena kalau tidak maka kamu tak akan mendapat hadiah dari Sinterklas!

You better watch out
You better not cry
Better not pout
I’m telling you why
Santa Claus is coming to town

He’s making a list
And checking it twice;
He’s gonna find out
Who’s naughty or nice
Santa Claus is coming to town

He sees you when you’re sleeping
He knows when you’re awake
He knows if you’ve been bad or good
So be good for goodness sake!

You better watch out!
You better not cry
You better not pout
I’m telling you why
Santa Claus is coming to town
