    And ya just couldn't beat Andre Kostelanetz

    I remember my folks having albums put out by Firestone. They were really good traditional Christmas songs on them.

    My favorite has to be White Christmas by Bing Crosby. Nobody does it better than the original crooner of this song.

    I am currently "rocking out" to Bing Crosby singing White Christmas. Bing was the best.

    Akron's own The Waitresses, "Christmas Wrapping". Very poppy.

    I have a soft spot for the Lennon Sisters, "No Place Like Home for the Holidays."

    There is only one Christmas song. Everything else pales in comparison.

    Re: Favorite Christmas song?

    Two classics:
    The Christmas Song- Mel Torme
    It's Cold Outside- Louis Armstrong, Ella Fitzgerald

    Nothing says Christmas to me like "Linus and Lucy" by the Vince Guaraldi Trio.
    It's hard not to just say the whole soundtrack to Charlie Brown Christmas isn't the best Christmas song ever. I tend to think of it as all one song.

    Zooey Deschanel and Leon Redbone sang Baby It's Cold Outside in Elf. It's pretty nice.

    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.

    As Kool-Aid would say "OH YEAH!"

    In our household, Dad made watching Lawrence Welk a staple. We kids didn't care much for it.... other then the Lennon Sisters, and the other "WelkGirls"



    Also loved Anacani
