Free Christmas Music Downloads

Now that Hallowe'en is over, everyone's mind is shifting to the Holiday season. I was out on the weekend and the stores are already starting to get pretty busy.

For me, music is a mood lifter and enhancer. To get into the spirit of things, usually all it takes is some appropriate music. I love Christmas songs most all, they work better to put me in the right frame of mind than any other kind. It just works for me.

There are probably a million places where you can get Christmas music, much of it you can listen to for free. If it's just for the personal pleasure of you and your family, you're probably good to go on any site offering tunes at no charge. Just take care that you don't download a virus and if you plan on downloading then uploading to your website, be sure to check the copyright license.

Here are some websites offering free Christmas music downloads that I found.
  • Incompetech - I'm sending you directly to the Holiday page. You'll have to scroll down just a little to find the songs. It mentions in the FAQ that while the music is free, a $5 donation is gratefully accepted if listeners so choose to show their appreciation financially to Kevin MacLeod, site owner and musician.
  • Christmas with the Swirrels - The kids will absolutely love this one! I'd be willing to bet there won't be a young child who can resist singing along.
  • Feels Like Christmas - Once again, I seem to be boasting a (sort of) competitor site but you can't beat free legal downloads, can you? Most of the songs here are performed by independent artists.
  • Christmas MPFree - A source of traditional and original, free legal Christmas music downloads.
  • EZ Tracks - This site offers up free carols, hymns, orchestral, and kids music by well-known names and in a variety of genres. You can even download your favourite song as a ringtone - for free.
Well, that should be enough to get you started. Now, you can compile your family's best loved Holiday music in preparation for the season. And it won't cost you a penny.

Hope you enjoy your free Christmas music downloads!
