Add "So This Is Christmas" and "Carol of the Bells" to my list. Also "Silver Bells." So many of the Christmas songs, when done in harmoney, are absolutely beautiful. I refuse to listen to any that have been altered to suit the singer's style. Sing it like it is written. There is a reason it is popular. Jazzing up a lovely tune or screeching it at the top of your lungs, ala "Roseanne style" just doesn't make it for me.

Barbara! That is a fantastic version, thanks. Shrek is already practicing it on the guitar.

They have a lovely soft tone to their harmony. Very nice.

"Six White Boomers" by Rolf Harris.

But honestly, I love all Christmas music.
