Cantopop songs are quintessentially Hong Kong, and a Hong Kong Christmas would not be complete without Cantopop Christmas songs. However, they do differ from the classic Christmas songs which are filled with joy and wonder. While some Cantopop Christmas songs are lively and catchy, others can be sad. A recurrent theme among many Christmas songs are heartbreak, being left on the shelf, loneliness, doomed romances.
