It’s that time of year again. From your local Starbucks to the drugstore to your car radio, Christmas songs are in heavy rotation. While there are a ton of classic songs and new holiday tunes to get us into the spirt of the season, we all have that one song we like to crank up and go all Mariah Carey on. So what makes some of us live for Mariah’s “All I Want for Christmas Is You” and others Run DMC’s “Christmas in Hollis”? It might come down to your zodiac sign.
Given that the signs are so distinct from one other, it makes sense that each would have its own musical preference. Typically, fire signs (Aries, Leo, Sagittarius) like more upbeat music, earth signs (Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn) prefer grounded tunes, air signs (Gemini, Libra, Aquarius) enjoy heavy-handed lyrics, and water signs (Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces) love dreamy harmonies. Read on to discover the the Christmas song that speaks to your sign.
Aries is the energetic “go-getter” of the zodiac and has a penchant for rock. For example, they’d like a song that gets them pumped up for that holiday office party. “Run Rudolph Run” is your jam.
Taurus is a creature of habit who longs for comfort yet has a sensual side. A traditional romantic song, like “I’ll Be Home for Christmas,” is your go-to for the fire and hot chocolate.
Gemini is a versatile and clever sign who likes witty wordplay, a fun vibe, and anything a little…out there. “I Want a Hippopotamus for Christmas” is definitely the song that says “you.”
Cancer is a sensitive homebody who takes regular trips down memory lane. A classic nostalgic song, like “The Christmas Song,” brings back all the feels for you.
Leo loves being the center of attention and all things glitzy and glam. A high-spirited and sexy number, like “All I Want for Christmas Is You,” sung by the queen, Mariah, is all you.
Virgo is the purist and perfectionist of the zodiac. They’re benevolent as they are precise about everything. Lovers of soothing and classical music, you’re “Carol of the Bells.”
Libra is charming, sociable, and the big romantic of the zodiac. They not only like a good happy ending, but a song that gets everyone in the Christmas spirit. You’re “Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays.”
Intense, mysterious, and sensitive, Scorpio enjoys music that is as complex and deep as they are. The bittersweet “River” is you in a nutshell.
Sagittarius is the free-spirited adventurer of the zodiac who prefers to always see the glass half-full. No wonder you’re the carefree “Jingle Bell Rock.”
Capricorn is the traditionalist of the zodiac. They appreciate anything that’s as reliable and dependable as they are. A Capricorn is said to never go out of style, just like the song “White Christmas.”
Avant-garde and lovers of all things as unique and progressive as they are, Aquarius, the humanitarian of the zodiac, prefers the same in their music. “Do They Know It’s Christmas?” is totally you.
Emotional, gentle, and dreamy, Pisces love to lose themselves in an equally fantastical song. You are most definitely “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas.”
Now that you know which Christmas song you are, it’s time to hit Spotify, drink some hot chocolate, and get lost in these wondrous holiday songs.
