    Favorite Christmas song?

    Just thought I'd ask everyone's favorite Christmas song. I like O Holy Night and Carol of the Bells.

    From fellow San Francisan Vince Guaraldi:

    The widow is gathering nettles for her children's dinner; a perfumed seigneur, delicately lounging in the Oeil de Boeuf, hath an alchemy whereby he will extract the third nettle and call it rent. ~ Carlyle

    I always liked "O Holy Night" until every person who ever thought of singing had to do a rendition.

    In terms of sacred music I prefer "The First Noel".

    In terms of profane christmas music I enjoy Straight No Chaser's version of everything, but mostly their 12 days of Christmas.

    Re: Favorite Christmas song?

    When I was a teenager we used to go caroling to raise money for charity. Does anyone still do that? Anyway, I love songs that remind me of those times:

    God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen
    Away In The Manger
    O Come All Ye Faithful
    Deck The Halls


    Besides those, I like the old Christmas classics, but it has to be a specific version:
    White Christmas - Bing Crosby
    Blue Christmas - Elvis Presley
    The Christmas Song (Chestnuts roasting...) - Nat King Cole (I also like an Aaron Neville rendition)
    A Holly Jolly Christmas - Burl Ives
    Rudolph - Gene Autry
    Little Drummer Boy - Bing Crosby and David Bowie
    Silent Night - Boys II Men

    and forgive me, but this year I actually have enjoyed this:
    Under The Mistletoe - Justin Bieber


    I guess I like ALL Christmas music. <not so famous shrug> Now if you'll excuse me, I need to go check if I've got a fever.

    Growing up, my Dad always filled our home with Christmas music during the season. He had one of the most extensive album collections I had ever seen.

    I remember when Firestone and Goodyear use to annually come out with Christmas albums. Dad had them all.

    Re: Favorite Christmas song?

    When I was only about four years old my parents' farmhouse burned, which destroyed all of their records collection. After that the only Christmas record we had until I was in my teens was an album of Christmas songs sung by Perry Como. As a result I still have a soft spot for Como and Christmas songs.
    There are two many Christmas songs I love for me to pick a favorite, but....
    White Christmas-Bing Crosby
    Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas-Judy Garland
    The Christmas Song ("Chestnuts")-Mel Torme
    O Holy Night-Martina McBride
    God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen-Perry Como
    Blue Christmas-Elvis Presley
    Emmanuel-Amy Grant
    Merry Christmas Darling-The Carpenters
    What Child Is This?-Martina McBride
    Baby It's Cold Outside-Dean Martin and Martina McBride
    I'll Be Home For Christmas-Bing Crosby
    Mary Did You Know?--too many versions to list
    "Hey...Dad. Wanna Have A Catch?" Kevin Costner in "Field Of Dreams."

    I've been to dinner at Jimmy Buffet's house, and I've eaten it at a homeless shelter. And there's great joy and harrowing terror to be found in both places.
