It’s that time of the year when Christmas music is playing everywhere you go. We all have our favorites, and we also have songs we start getting tired of hearing. But for the most part, the music adds a wonderful soundtrack for one of the best times of the year and helps puts people in good spirits.

But what can we learn from all of these holiday classics? Today we’ll take four of the top Christmas songs and find the financial message within the music. No matter what you celebrate this time of the year, the lessons we’ll discuss today will apply to your financial plan.


Here’s some of what we discuss in this episode:

  • The 12 Days of Christmas teaches us the importance of patience.
  • Rudolph shows us the value of persistence.
  • Mommy Kissing Santa Claus reminds us that things aren’t always as they seem.
  • What can we learn from Grandma Got Run Over By a Reindeer
