Have a Christmas karaoke party to celebrate the upcoming holiday with friends and family is a fun way to usher in the season.
Festive Karaoke Bars
Getting out of the house in the cold winter months can be a priority for those who live in cold weather climates. One way to do so is get a group of people together and meet up at a karaoke bar. Christmas decorations, music, and even holiday singing contests are often to be found throughout the month of December at karaoke bars.
If there isn't a karaoke bar in your neighborhood or town, the following places often have karaoke "nights" where a DJ comes in once a week or a few times a month and lets customers sing their hearts out:
- Bowling alleys
- Bar and grills
- Roller or ice skating rinks
- Youth centers
Local groups who need Christmas fundraising help may choose to rent a karaoke machine or hire a DJ. They will advertise on regional radio stations and in newspapers. Admission is usually charged and snacks may be available for an additional fee. Going to this event supports local charities and companies while allowing a night of fun for everyone.
Karaoke Machine Gifts
Consider giving yourself or someone you love a karaoke machine as a Christmas gift. Not only can you do Christmas karaoke with the present, but it is great year-round entertainment. Bachelor/bachelorette parties, teen parties, birthday parties, and just hanging around the house are perfect opportunities for using a karaoke machine.
Take a look at the following karaoke machines as a possible present:
- SDAT Professional Karaoke Machine with MP4 Playback: Priced at just over $100, this is an affordable option for someone on your holiday list. A number of formats are supported, including mp3, CD, DVD, and more.

If you are looking for a more high-tech version of a karaoke machine for Christmas, you can always check out listings on your area's Craigslist or eBay. Always check seller references and ratings before making a large purchase.
Christmas Karaoke Music
Popular Christmas carols are always popular karaoke music. Knowing at least the first verse and chorus helps you make a better impression when singing karaoke. Not having to rely on the lyrics is always helpful when you are in front of a crowd.
