Christmas Songs.....What your favorite?

I love the traditional one like Jingle Bells, Silent Night, etc...... But what I really love are songs like this......

Eagles "Please Come Home For Christmas"

Vince Vance "All I Want For Christmas Is You"

Right now I can't think of any others similar to these......care to jog my memory?

My favorite carols are Joy to the World (not the "Jeremiah was a bullfrog" one) and Gesu Bambino.

Song-wise, I love Diana Krall's "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas," and Nat Cole's "The Christmas Song."

Wine is the food that completes the meal.

Practice safe lunch. Use a condiment.

-- Wee little still-black Michael Jackson singing "I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus"

-- most of Nat King Cole's Christmas stuff (unless he's trying to sing in French phonetically, yergh!)

-- ditto for Bing Crosby

-- almost any straight version of "What Child Is This"

-- almost anything sung by The Vienna Boys Choir

Mary's Little Boy Child, O Little Town of Bethlehem, Blue Christmas, An Old Christmas Card, Silver Bells all sung by my favourite singer, Jim Reeves. And last but not least, My First Christmas Without Daddy, a poignant and touching song that brings back memories of my dear late father.
The proof of the pudding is in the eating!

To me the most important part about Christmas is the 'peace on Earth goodwill towards men' part.

It is, as I get older, a bittersweet time. There is the joy and wonder of the day and the memories of times past, but also the saddness of things past.

That being said, I love Grandma Got Run Over by a Reindeer.

Always gives me a chuckle.

And a very Happy Hannukah and Merry Christmas.

Blue Christmas - as sung by Porky Pig

I also like "I'll Be Home for Christmas"... and "It Came Upon a Midnight Clear"... and "Little Drummer Boy"... and "I'm Dreaming of a White Christmas".

But I swear... if I hear "Jingle Bell Rock" one more time I'm goin' postal.

My Favorites are:

Oh Holy Night
What Child is This
We Three Kings
How the Grinch Stole Christmas
I'll Be Home For Christmas
Do You Hear What I Hear
The Little Drummer Boy
White Christmas

Worst song ever? Silent Night, absolutely cannot stand that one.
