Favorite Christmas/Holiday Music

Anyone have a favorite tune?

I love Carol of the Bells and O Come Emmanuel.

That said, my absolute favorite rendition of Jingle Bells was by my younger niece when she was 2. We have her on video saying "Jeengle Bells, Jeengel Bells.....HEY! Jeengle bells, Jeengle Be-ells, HEY!" followed by a few made up mumbled lyrics and then "Jingle Bells. HEY!" with the biggest grin on her face. :-)

Re: Favorite Christmas/Holiday Music

  • My favorite tune is greensleeves, and I love religious Christmas songs. I also generally like Christmas classics.

    When we were younger my parents played the harry Connick Jr Christmas CD a lot so that has some great memories attached to it.

    I must admit I LOVE Mariah Carey's song, all I want for Christmas is you.
  • I love christmas music :) My most favorites are the religious christmas songs as well, and my favorite out of those would be Silent Night.

    Same here and it's always been my favorite. FI makes fun of the fact that my new tradition with the CD seems to be buying it each year and losing it before the next Christmas. This year he finally just added it to itunes so I can't lose it

    My favorites are 'O Holy Night,' and 'The Christmas Song (Chestnuts Roasting on an Open Fire,' by Nat King Cole. I hate 'Santa, Baby.'

    Santa Baby is the worst. Nothing says Christmas cheer like an affair with Santa.

    HATE: The Christmas Shoes and Baby it's cold outside.

  • I love Christmas music! I love this season in general. I think my favorite Christmas song is "The Little Drummer Boy". It's just such a humble story of giving. 
  • @chibiyui  I love the music from A Charlie Brown Christmas.

    Carol of the Bells terrifies me. It sounds like the shower scene music of Pscyho. My favorite is probably Sleigh Ride. And I agree Santa Baby and Baby It's Cold Outside are just creepy. 


    What did you think would happen if you walked up to a group of internet strangers and told them to get shoehorned by their lady doc?~StageManager14

  • I absolutely hate Do You Hear What I Hear? because it reminds me of that creepy scene in Gremlins where the kid doesn't know where the Gremlins are in the house and they put that record on to freak him out. FI laughs at me every time it comes on the radio because I get chills. However, I'm in love with the entire Love Actually soundtrack! I know it's not all Christmas/holiday music, but it reminds me of the movie, which totally put me in a cheery mood :)

  • @Addie, listen to the Carol of the Bells rendition by Celtic Woman. Has some beautiful Irish violin music intertwined into the main carol. Might be easier to handle. :)
  • I love " all I want for Christmas" by Mariah Carey :)

  • @chibiyui everyone hates Christmas Shoes.

    I love My Soul Maginifies the Lord from Chris Tomlin's Christmas album, even though it's not a traditional Christmas carol. I also love O Come O Come Emmanuel.

  • Oh Holy Night is by far my favorite and I love Mary, Do you Know.  You can follow that up with Mariah Carey's All I want for Christmas.  hate hate hate the shoe song
  • I like Carol of the Bells as well.
  • My favorite is Hark the Herald Angels Sing followed by Home for the Holidays
  • Christmas is my favorite holiday, and I love music, so I have many favorites. Among them are both James Taylor and Judy Garland's version of "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas" and Alison Krauss' version of the Wexford Carol.

  • I love all Christmas music!  I think Snoopy's Christmas is a neat song because of the story it tells.  The truce between Red Baron and Snoopy is based on the real life Christmas truce of 1914 between German and British soldiers.
