Christmas Songbook – Free PDF Printable!

Part of our yearly Christmas traditions is spending Christmas Eve singing carols together as an extended family. Years and years ago, my mom made each member of our family a printable Christmas Songbook.

It was perfect to have a book for each family member so we could sign along and participate. Over the years, we’ve slowly lost our books and we’ve also realized which songs our family always skips past.

I decided it was time to create my own free pdf printable Christmas Songbook! That way, I would always have a copy of the book easy to print when we inevitably lose our copies or for when our family grows in size.

Unfortunately, I couldn’t find free Christmas sheet music to use, but I actually prefer just the popular Christmas songs lyrics.

Christmas Songbook Song List

This songbook includes 36 Christmas songs broken down into three categories so you can easily find the songs you want for your group: kids favorites, songs of the season, and Christ centered carols.

The 12 Kids favorite songs coordinate with a smaller Christmas Songs for Kids songbook I created last year with the same page numbers. The kids Christmas songbook has coloring images on most the pages and keeps kids interested and involved.

How to Print & Assemble the Christmas Songbook

The free printable songbook is set up to easily print front to back. If you are able to print both pages front to back with your printer, just open the document and it’s ready to print! Place a sheet of colored cardstock at the top of your paper tray to print your cover with that stronger paper.

If you can’t print front to back, print all the odd pages, then reload your printer tray with the printed pages paying attention to which side and direction your printer prints from.

Print the even pages, allowing them to print to the back of your odd pages.

After your pages have printed, leave them in the order they print, and quickly flip through to ensure your pages are still in the correct order.

Then, just stack all the pages, crease down the center, and use a long neck stapler to reach the center.

My Printing Secret Weapon!

Do you ever fret about printing out projects like this? I love using HP Instant Ink, which is an ink subscription plan. It makes it no big deal to print out 10 copies of the 20-page songbook for each of my family members to have a copy.

In fact, I just printed another 10 copies of our new large format updated version!

I’m never out of ink because as soon as my cartridge starts to run low, my printer automatically alerts the Instant Ink service through the connected web services and a new cartridge gets mailed out to me. One important note is this service does require a compatible HP printer to join.

Start with a FREE month of printer ink to try out Instant Ink! 4 years later and I STILL love and recommend Instant Ink!

Christmas Songbook Condensed

NEW! Updated in December 2021, we now have an improved version with few pages — condensed down to 16 page (8 double-sided pages). It still includes all the same songs, but with improved formatting.

This option will be best if you’re limited in your ability to print or simply need to conserve paper or ink such as when making a ton of copies.

This version uses size 14 font in general throughout the file, with some variation as needed. Notice the font size and spacing differences between the two pictures to decide which one is right for you!

NEW! Large Print Christmas Songbook!

We’ve also created a brand new large format version with 22 pages (11 double-sided pages). The bigger font option is perfect for kids, seniors, and visually impaired. But it’s also just really nice to utilize when singing carols in low lighting!

Both copies still perfectly coordinate with or original printable songbook, so you can keep older copies and use the newer and improved formatting when expanding your collection.

The large print version uses size 18 font or larger for most songs. A few have size 16 font when they just wouldn’t fit larger. You can compare the font sizes with this picture and the one above when trying to decide which one to print!
