The Ray Conniff Singers version of Jolly Old Saint Nicholas has always signalled the beginning of the Christmas season to me.-

This version which CLAIMS to be the Ray Conniff Singers but ISN'T does sound a lot like them, and is very full of energy: 

Jolly Old Saint Nicholas is a beautiful easy Christmas song, and it makes a good "Big Sister/Little Brother" kind of piece.

Easy to listen to and to sing along with, the primo/solo part is centered around Middle C for beginners.

The Secondo, below, has a predictable pattern with a bit of variation, making it suitable for elementary students who are starting to understand chord formation.

As it is in the key of C, there are no black notes to worry about!

Duet Jolly Old Saint Nicholas for piano, a secondo part with broken chord patterns.

Kids enjoy these Christmas song lyrics, and with a gentle chord accompaniment such as the Secondo part I have written, the song makes a very pretty recital piece.

For a more boisterous sound, try blocking the chords (turn the broken chords into solid, all-together chords) or splitting the chords in an "OOM-pah-pah-pah" four-beat pattern!

And here is the arrangement for young beginners with the occasional letter inside the notehead:
