Christmas is literally right around the corner! For some families, a tradition on Christmas Eve is letting the little ones stay up until midnight so they can get a visit from Santa and open a few Christmas gifts.

Yup, thanks to cutting-edge research by the sleep aficionados at Bed Kingdom, we now have the definitive list of the top ten Christmas songs to tuck your little ones in with.

The Bed Kingdom experts analyzed over 300 tracks from Spotify's sleep playlists, meticulously considering factors such as beats per minute (BPM), danceability, happiness, liveness, and acoustics. The result? A magical mix of melodies that's practically a ticket to dreamland!

The ideal criteria for a Christmas sleep anthem? A serene BPM of 94, low danceability, low happiness (because too much joy might lead to a midnight dance party), low liveness, and high acoustics. It turns out, that classic crooners like Frank Sinatra and Nat King Cole, alongside contemporary icons like Mariah Carey and Michael Bublé, are the Sandmen of the season.

Take a look at the top ten sleepy Christmas songs that will get your kids to sleep:

1. "The Secret of Christmas" - Mother’s Daughter, Beck Pete, Ryan James Tile
2. "White Christmas"- Michael Bolton
3. "Silent Night"- Michael Bublé
