You will find here a list of Christmas carols and songs that people sung at Christmas in the Czech Republic. It should be remembered that the Czech songs and generally festive period is not related to religiosity. Despite this, the majority of Czechs cultivates Christmas (and before Advent) traditions. The most popular Christmas customs followed today by many Czech families include lighting four candles on the Advent wreath (one on each Sunday of Advent). A few days before Christmas from the Czech houses comes the smell of “cukrovi” small sweet cookies. Their burning, sharing of recipes and trying it before Christmas in the Czech Republic is real ritual.

Christmas wishes in Czech

Christmas Tree – Vánoční strom, Christmases – Vánoce.
Czechs decorate the Christmas tree, hang mistletoe over the door, make cribs from the little Jesus, go to midnight mass, give each other gifts. Czechs also sing Christmas carols, they are very similar to the Polish and Slovak – some are translations of Polish Christmas carols (or vice versa). The Czechs have their own unique culinary traditions associated with Christmas.
I would recommend a playlist of songs from YouTube from the very many Czech Christmas carols, but most are not described:
