The holiday season is in here and like it, or not, you can't escape Christmas tunes, whether it’s in stores, or even in the elevator. And, one of the interesting phenomenons about Christmas music is that there are a handful of songs that are made over and over and over and over!

So, which holiday songs have been recorded the most? Well, Songdex, the largest database of music rights in the world, has released their list of the 30 most recorded holiday songs, and here they are!  

No big surprises, though, I was hoping 'Oi To The World' or 'I Won't Be Home For Christmas' would make the list!
