You know it’s Christmas when: You can’t find the song on Spotify.
You can find it on YouTube.
You don’t even know the song exists.
But when you listen to a song like the one above, you’re likely to have a different impression.
It’s a holiday song.
What you’re really hearing is a song about Christmas, and that’s a perfectly normal thing to hear.
But if you’re listening to it from afar, the lyrics may not sound so festive.
How can this be?
A few things go into determining if a Christmas song is a holiday or not.
First, it’s important to note that a song’s title doesn’t tell the whole story.
The lyrics are actually a series of words that describe what you’re hearing.
For example, “Christmas in November” is not just a title, it is a sequence of words describing the weather in November.
If a song has the words “Christmas” and “November” in the title, you know it has a Christmas-themed song.
Second, a song may be a holiday if it has “Christmas music” in its title.
For most songs, this means a melody or lyrics that describe a specific time of the year.
For instance, “Let’s all go out and party this year!” might be a “holiday” song.
Third, songs are usually not meant to be sung.
They’re meant to represent the atmosphere or mood of a particular location.
So if you hear a song in a movie theater, it probably has a “movie” theme in it.
And when you hear the lyrics of a Christmas holiday song, they’ll usually be the words describing that specific location, whether that’s on the stage or at the theater.

The word “holiday,” on the other hand, can mean a variety of things.
