If you're looking for free Christmas music this holiday season, include Amazon in one of your stops. There aren't very many options when downloading free Christmas music on Amazon. Still, you'll find over two dozen free Christmas songs that range from traditional to contemporary.
Amazon Music Unlimited: The Best Option
If you have an Amazon Music Unlimited subscription, it's easily the best way to access tons of free (included in your subscription) holiday music. When it comes to digital content, like music and movies, Amazon has put the majority of its focus on paid streaming subscriptions. As a result, the free music covered in the rest of this article may feel a little lacking.
There are some free songs that you can download from Amazon. However, if you want a diverse playlist for the holidays, Amazon Music Unlimited is the best option.
You can check out the extensive library of holiday songs by going to the Amazon Digital Music department. Pick Holiday from the list of genres along the left side of the page, then choose Christmas, Hanukkah, New Year's, or another holiday. Check the box at the top for Amazon Music Unlimited, and you'll only see songs you can stream for free with your account.
If you don't feel like browsing, head straight to Amazon Music Unlimited holiday songs.
