This is just something that popped into my head while I was staring at the wall the other day. I guess they're not all technically "Christmas" songs but they tend to get called that anyway so. . .
A few things:
1. The answers are all found the same way.
2. 1,3,and 5, have the spaces marked. 2, 4, and 6 do not.
3. "Key" may not be the right term. You do not absolutely need the key to figure out the titles but it might make things a little easier.

1. oharna caob obarhmgbe hsinbmg kfsink Key: 58, 11, 474, 110, 59

2. plipalbhmgmgmnbchfcaocscmg Key: 57585594

3. vb vfko mnpsc h albararmn lioarfkcaalhk Key: 3, 15, 22, 1, 362, 5867

4. carpkcamncaobksipvalhsi Key: 7253878

5. beblina caob ohmgmgk Key: 90, 11, 117

6. popmgmnsifnoca Key: 15710

Good luck!

Hi Emily. Welcome to the Den! That didn't take long. As I said, the "key" wasn't completely necessary. I assume you know how I made this and didn't just crack this with the brute force method.

Can you give the explanation? Can you see what the significance of the numbers are now?

Oh, this was definitely brute force. It all began with the solitary "h" in #3 :-)

That was the purpose but there's something else you're missing. It will make sense when you figure out where the code comes from. I was literally staring at the wall when I thought of this but there was something on it. Not much of a hint but maybe a lightbulb will go off. You might also consider resorting your list. . .
