I love Christmas songs. I’m usually that annoying person that plays Christmas music starting in November (#sorrynotsorry 😜) .
Besides reading Chinese Christmas storybooks, making ornaments , watching Chinese Christmas movies and celebrating Advent in Chinese, we love to learn Christmas songs in Chinese.
Learning a language through songs makes the process not only fun for kids, but also super easy for you as a parent.
Music helps kids pick up tones and useful phrases. Just think of a Christmas song you can’t get out of your mind. By simply playing music in the background at home or in the car, your kids will start picking up Chinese because you’re immersing them in it. The best part? All you need to do is press play (or tell Alexa).
When I started trying to find Chinese Christmas song I had the hardest time!
That’s why I set out to put together Chinese Christmas carols playlist via YouTube & Spotify along with printable lyrics for you and your kids to celebrate this wonderful holiday together in Chinese!
I also include information and links to Chinese Christmas albums below if you would prefer to listen the albums on different platforms or to purchase them.
The printable lyrics are available in traditional, simplified with and without pinyin and zhuyin.

Chinese Christmas Songs Playlists
This is a YouTube playlist I compiled of Chinese Christmas songs. These are mainly classic ones and some renditions.
For Spotify users, here’s the playlist for your listening pleasures.
Recommended Chinese Christmas Songs Albums
If you prefer to purchase the actual album, or if you use other music streaming platforms, here are a few I recommend. They’re all included in both of the playlists I compiled:
Hymn Squad: Mega Christmas/聖歌特讚隊：特讚聖誕/Shèng gē tè zàn duì: Tè zàn shèngdàn
This album is put together by a Christian music ministry in Taiwan called OmniPro/歐讚音樂/Ōu zàn yīnyuè. They cover many classic Christmas carols in the album but with a more updated feel.
Some songs include some rap in Chinese. There are also three songs in Taiwanese/台語/Tái yǔ which is a language near and dear to my heart (both sets of my grandparents spoke Taiwanese. My great grandmother only spoke Taiwanese).
There are also four instrumental versions of their songs for your karaoke 🎤pleasure.
O Holy Night by Lamb Music/聖善夜:小羊詩歌/shèng shàn yè:xiǎo yáng shīgē
Lamb music is a Christian music ministry based in San Diego California that produces contemporary Chinese Christian music in Mandarin, Taiwanese and Cantonese.
Their Christmas album has 5 songs in Chinese including three classics O Holy Night and What Child is This and Hallelujah Chorus. One song is written by the band.
Yellow Christmas/黃色聖誕 by Various Artists
Great album with both Mandarin, Cantonese and Taiwanese Christmas songs including some classics like Silent Night and also new songs written by other Taiwanese artists.
