Ten Christmas Songs that Mention Bells

by Sandra Merville Hart

Traditionally, most churches had bells that rang to let folks nearby know of an important event. On Christmas, bells were rung to remember the birth of Jesus.

Here’s a list of ten traditional Christmas songs that mention bells:

  • “Silver Bells”
  • “Jingle Bells”
  • “Jingle Bell Rock”
  • “Carol of the Bells”
  • “I Heard the Bells on Christmas Day”
  • “Sleigh Ride” – Just hear those sleigh bells jingle-ing
  • “Ding Dong Merrily on High” – In heav’n the bells are ringing
  • “Caroling, Caroling” – Christmas bells are ringing
  • “Here Comes Santa Claus” – Bells are ringing
  • “White Christmas” – To hear sleigh bells in the snow

Can you think of others?

Merry Christmas!
