With the holiday season of course comes the abundance of festive music to put us in the happy and jolly spirit. Although so many songs to choose from, students at New Hope have voted for their favorite holiday song in a recent poll sent out.
The more classic songs like "It’s Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas" and "It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year" surprisingly received the lowest number of votes which shows how taste in holiday music has evolved.
The responses indicated that the infamous and iconic song "All I Want for Christmas is You" by Mariah Carey received 26.2% of the votes, winning the poll. In second place, the lesser known cover of "Rudolph, the Red-nosed Reindeer" by DMX won 18% of the votes. And in third place, "Jingle Bell Rock" received 10.8% of the votes.
Through this poll, it has been shown that people’s favorite holiday tunes have strayed away from the more traditional and jazzy songs and that holiday music today is evolving to become more pop.
