Christmas Songs In And Not In The Public Domain – Merch Amazon Copyright Info

Christmas “sales” is coming, through Merch Sensei Tool you would see plenty of good selling Christmas quotes, but be careful to put them on. Since there are many Merch T-shirts using Christmas song lyrics, that may be copyrighted but don’t appear by trademark searching, I would like to notice the best known songs. What are free to use, what are not?
