The top post-2000 Christmas tracks

Now, you may have noticed that pretty much all of the songs we’ve listed were recorded before the year 2000 (the old stuff is always the best). So, if you’re travelling somewhere this Christmas with your young family, you’ll probably need to include some more modern tracks to keep everyone happy.

The perfect family friendly Christmas tracks

Going a step further, Christmas films can be a really good source for songs to fill your festive journey. Over the years there’s been no shortage of family friendly Christmas films by the likes of Disney and Pixar, and you can bet that each one of them has at least one great musical number in there somewhere. So, if you need some seasonal singalong for your playlist, here are a few recommendations:
