Taurus loves the generous aspect of gift-giving, but they can also be a bit materialistic. Since they have a taste for luxurious things, "Santa Baby" by Eartha Kitt is their ideal Christmas song.

"A song that asks Santa for Tiffany's rings and cars fits the vibe of this sign perfectly," says Smith "Presents are the best part of Christmas for Taurus!"

"Rockin' Around the Christmas Tree" by Brenda Lee is just what they need to get in the holiday spirit, from drinking eggnog with their friends to getting a little sentimental with family.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): "Happy Xmas (War is Over)" by John Lennon and Yoko Ono

As the eccentrics of the zodiac, Aquarians aren't going to listen to any old Christmas song. However, "Happy Xmas (War is Over)"  by John Lennon and Yoko Ono easily aligns with this air sign's humanitarian nature.

Aquarius may find it difficult to celebrate when they know other people are suffering, but Rodriguez says this song calls for a better world. And its innovative musical style reflects their love for progressive ideas and social change.

Pisces: "Santa Tell Me" by Ariana Grande

With Pisces' whimsical tendencies and thoughtful nature, it's no surprise that they love the holiday season. But Rodriguez says they should listen to a Christmas carol that reflects their introspective and emotional nature.

"Santa Tell Me" by Ariana Grande gets them thinking about what's working and what needs to get left behind in the New Year. Plus, the catchy tune and lyrics will help them get their minds off things.
