My latest favourite is "I Need A Silent Night" by Amy Grant (see my signature for the chorus!)

Ohhhhh, yes, expat!! Your third one down is titled "Do You Hear What I Hear?" and it's one of my favorites, too!

At work, I hear the Bing Crosby version 8 times a day. Nice, but Ed Ames' version is my favorite.

(Ed Ames, IMO, deserves far more recognition as an incredible voice than he ever got. Dean Martin, too!)

Thanks for that, Barbara. Amazingly, DH said he had never heard that song before, so I had to play it for him

I'm not sure if I've I have heard Ed Ames' sing it but I love Bing Crosby's, Perry Como's and Ann Murray's renditions.........will see if I can find him on a DVD

All of you have given great ideas for others......in the spirit of the holidays :):)
