‘Tis the Season to be Jolly! Here’s some Cantonese Christmas Carols playlists to get into the festive spirit. You can also search for more on YouTube with the following search terms: 粵語聖誕歌 (Cantonese Christmas Song) and 粵語聖誕詩歌 (Cantonese Christmas Hymns). You might need to really search through the results, as it would be a mix of Mandarin Christmas songs, hymns, even English Christmas songs.
(There might be various versions of lyrics for each song, as they are all translated by differently. Just pick the one that the lyrics appeal most to you. )

This playlist of Cantonese Christmas Hymns out there are really a diverse assortment, because they are so many different ones on YouTube, and they are hard to distinguish from other worship hymns, Mandarin songs, songs for Easter etc. Hence there is this diverse compilation of Cantonese specific songs.
