Songs for the 2020 Christmas Season (Sorted by Category)

Every Christmas, I post a list of songs related to the holiday. Some are traditional, some are modern, some are secular, and some are, well, funny. This time around, I've sorted them into different groups. This proved more difficult than one would think because some probably belong in more than one category. As before, they are all linked to iTunes Preview, YouTube, etc., so you can listen to (preview) or watch) them.
