I know its Christmas time when my mother, bitches that she doesnt want a tree this year.... But also when I hear the Carpenters "Merry Christmas Darling" and "Silver Bells" song by Johnny Mathis. What is your favorite Christmas song?

I have several but I love to hear Elvis sing Silent Night...and of course Bing Crosby singing White Christmas...

I could never ever pick just one favorite as I have so many for different reasons (fav to hear, fav to sing, fav to play on Christmas Eve, fav for opening presents to, etc.).

But I will admit to my guilty pleasure - I love the Boney M version of "Mary's Boy Child" - it just makes me happy to hear it!

And Anne Murray's "Christmas in Kilarney" which always puts a bounce in my step (used to hear it 6 times a day at the restaurant I worked in as it was part of the Christmas Muzak loop, and it always perked up my tired waitress feet!).

See, I couldn't even limit my guilty favorites to one choice!

I don't know about my favorite but if I hear Burl Ives sing "Happy Holly Christmas" one more time I'll put my foot through my car radio. I AM kind of partial to my Mannheim Steamroller CD.

James Brown - anything off his 'Funky Christmas' album, but particularly 'Santa Claus Goes Straight to the Ghetto'.
Or the Pogues.

That's my favorite too, Pennwoman. Pay no attention to my avatar!

Transiberian Orchestra is remarkable. I love everything they do.

Adeste Fidelis brings back my youth and singing in the choir, so does Silent Night.

If I had to pick one it would be "Do you hear what I hear"
BUT I get totally SICK of all Christmas music by the time
we've had 2 months of it !!!! Just call me a GRINCH....

I like them all, from the Chipmunks to choirs & everything in between. Anne Murray's (Elvis' favourite female singer) version of Go Tell It On The Mountain, gives me shivers. My favourite to sing is Good King Wenceslas, not that anyone wants to hear me. I'd play Christmas songs & carols in July if my loving family wouldn't have been locked up

Don - did you mean "Holly Jolly Christmas?" If not, I don't know the one you're talking about. But that's ok - please don't sing it.

But ooooooooo Mannheim Steamroller CD - any of their Christmas stuff is breathtaking - TS orchestra too.

But my TWO favorites are MercyMe's "Joseph's Lullaby" and Take 6's "Strange Way to Save the World." Oh, and Amy Grant's "Breath of Heaven."

Fave to sing is O Holy Night.

JANK....Forgot about "Oh Holy Night" That's another big favorite

RANDY....Do you remember Good King Wenceslas was the song
I sung to the bear that I met - and it walked off in disgust????
Either it didn't like carols either, OR it didn't like my voice
....or maybe that one was just not a favorite....

O Holy Night (which must be sung by a man) brings tears to my eyes. Somehow I just don't care for a woman's voice singing it.

My favorite to sing is Silent Night.

I'm a big fan of Mannheim Steamroller also.

I love Carol of the Bells, too. But Go Tell it on the Mountain is my favorite.

I already told this story before but must have been a while ago.
I was walking my two dogs early one winter morning, and a HUGE
Black Bbear emerged from the bushes in front of us....
So I'm thinking fast....make a lot of noise and make yourself look
bigger.... dogs aren't going to help, they're sitting down whimpering.
So I waved both arms up and down whilst shouting "Good King
Wenceslas looked out...."
The bear looked me in the eye, shook his/her head, and ambled off.

When I told one of my neighbours what I had done, he said if he had
heard me singing Carols at 7am on a Sunday morning....he would
have just shot me!!!!

Row - my 5th grade beginner orchestras always play Good King W for our winter concert (because it's early enough in their book to learn it well). I can't wait to tell them this story. But I'm going to wait till after the concert to tell them - you know kids, they'd probably start snickering in the concert and fall apart thinking about it!

Do You Hear What I Hear, The Little Drummer Boy and Carol of the Bells.

My handbell choir at church also does a really cool one that's always challenging called "Calypso Christmas" that's awesome

Favorite hymn is "Come All Ye Faithfull" but favorite Christmas song is "Dance Into Christmas" by Elton John.

Miss Row,

WOW!! Holy Christmas! Or, maybe Holy Christmas Carol!! I am totally speechless and in awe of a bear scaring woman like you! Now there's a story for the grandkids, eh? In the same situation, I'd probably pee my pants and not remember Jingle Bells.

There are so many good Christmas songs. I love to hear Bing sing White Christmas (love the movie too) but my favorite Christmas song is Oh Holy Night. It just makes feel good when I hear.

There are just way too many great ones to narrow it down to just one, for me. A few top ones have been mentioned already -

Donden - Mannheim Steamroller
Lettermanfan1 - Santa Claus is coming to Town by Bruce Springsteen
Yonux The Bing Crosby/David Bowie duet on "Little Drummer Boy".

also in my tops are...

Willie Nelson - Pretty Paper
The Temptations - My Christmas Tree
Dolly Parton - Hard Candy Christmas
Natalie Merchant-(and others too!) - Children, Go Where I Send Thee

and almost all of the songs on Bob Rivers Twisted Christmas CD's

(The Restroom Door Said, "Gentlemen" ,A Visit From St. Nicholson,
Walkin' 'Round in Women's Underwear, We Wish You Weren't Living With Us,
Wreck the Malls, Didn't I Get This Last Year?, O Come All Ye Grateful Deadheads & I want a Hippopotamus For Christmas) You can tune in on-line at

Emerson Lake and Palmer's I Believe in Father Christmas, Hymns: It Came Upon A Midnight Clear, Silent Night, and Adeste Fideles (O Come All Ye Faithful). These Christmas songs are nostalgic and full of childhood memories.

their socks by night"....
