    Well, you can't have ONE favourite! There are too many amazing songs . . . here are my top three:

    - Ukranian Bell Carol (Hark, How the Bells)
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D-_9fbLqXBg
    - I Saw Three Ships
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ulQgAV3CVZM
    - The Christmas Song by Alvin and the Chimpunks
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2dnro...eature=related


    (I don't know if this counts, but Good King Wenceslas ROCKS! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Uxmmu...eature=related)

    Re: Christmas songs

    Transiberan Orchestrsa's Carol of the Bells is one of my favorite covers of a Christmas song ever. I also love Good King Wenceslas or however you spell it, Greensleves, Sleigh Ride and the Mr. Grinch song. "You're a mean one, Mr. Grinch!"

    Mr. Grinch song. "You're a mean one, Mr. Grinch!"
    I totally forgot about that. Watching the Grinch (original cartoon version) is a tradition of mine every Christmas Eve. Quite shameful I forgot the song.

    Re: Christmas songs

    Another great Xmas song is "I Wish" by L'Arc~en~Ciel
    Youtube
    I WISH (romaji)

    nakanaide konna yoru na no ni
    hitori kiri hiza o kakaete
    matte ite kaketsuketeku kara
    gozen reiji no kane ga naru mae ni

    sono mado o akete mite goran
    machi wa mou kiseki ni afurete
    natsukashii uta mo kikoeru yo
    ano suteki na ORUGAN ni nosete

    shinjiteru kimochi sae nakusanai youni
    mou ichi do sono hitomi yurasete kuretara

    ...hora

    kimi ni ikutsu mono masshiro na tenshi ga mai orite
    warattara totte oki no kono yoru o iwaou

    takusan no itoshisa o wakete kureta kara
    nozomu nara sora datte oyoide miseru yo

    ...hora

    kimi wa dare yori mo taisetsu na hito dakara
    donna ni saigetsu ga nagarete mo waratte ite hoshii

    inotteru boku nanka dou natte mo
    kimi ga itsu made mo itsu mademo
    shiawase de arimasu youni


    I WISH (english)

    Don't cry, on nights like this
    Embrace your knees all by yourself
    Because you keep waiting and rushing about
    Before bells ring at midnight

    Open up that window and take a look at this
    The town is overflowing in miracles already
    You can even hear a precious song
    Riding on that heavenly organ

    So you don't lose your faith
    If you would just bat those eyes for me once more

    ...look!

    So many angels of pure white come floating down for you
    When you laugh, we'll celebrate this most blessed night

    Because we gave out so much love
    If you make a wish even the sky will seem to be swimming

    ...look!

    You're so much more precious than anyone else
    And so I hope you always smile no matter how many years pass by
    No matter what becomes of me, I'll be praying
    That forever and ever,
    you'll be happy

    Re: Christmas songs

    Growing up we were not a Christian or Catholic (or whatever) household. We celebrated Chanukah. Although we did know what a Chanukah bush was (lol).

    I don't know that I have one favorite, so I'll list some of my favorites. I must admit my loyalties to certain versions of certain songs are rarely swayed. I am a bit of a snob when it comes to my favorite versions. No others will do. Although, like I said these songs are no more than festive holiday season songs for me, I know it means much more to most of you, so enjoy.

    Mary's boy child by Harry Belefonte (he sings it with such emotion)
    YouTube - Mary's Boy Child

    O' holy night by Josh Groban (he's an awesome singer)
    YouTube - Josh Groban - O Holy Night

    Oiche Chuin (O' holy night) by Enya (voice of the angels)
    YouTube - Oiche Chuin -Enya

    White Christmas by Bing Crosby (I always loved Holiday Inn)
    YouTube - Bing Crosby - White Christmas

    Have a holly Jolly Christmas by Burl Ives (always loved Sam the snowman)
    YouTube - Holly Jolly Christmas

    The little drummer boy by The Harry Simeone Chorale (total classic)
    YouTube - The Harry Simeone Chorale - The Little Drummer boy 33RPM

    Christmas time is here from a Charlie Brown Christmas (love it)

    Re: Christmas songs

    Has anyone heard "Christmas Shoes" by Newsong? My mum cries every time she hears it:

    It was almost Christmas time, there I stood in another line
    Tryin' to buy that last gift or two, not really in the Christmas mood
    Standing right in front of me was a little boy waiting anxiously
    Pacing 'round like little boys do
    And in his hands he held a pair of shoes

    His clothes were worn and old, he was dirty from head to toe
    And when it came his time to pay
    I couldn't believe what I heard him say

    Chorus:
    Sir, I want to buy these shoes for my Mama, please
    It's Christmas Eve and these shoes are just her size
    Could you hurry, sir, Daddy says there's not much time
    You see she's been sick for quite a while
    And I know these shoes would make her smile
    And I want her to look beautiful if Mama meets Jesus tonight

    He counted pennies for what seemed like years
    Then the cashier said, "Son, there's not enough here"
    He searched his pockets frantically
    Then he turned and he looked at me
    He said Mama made Christmas good at our house
    Though most years she just did without
    Tell me Sir, what am I going to do,
    Somehow I've got to buy her these Christmas shoes

    So I laid the money down, I just had to help him out
    I'll never forget the look on his face when he said
    Mama's gonna look so great

    Sir, I want to buy these shoes for my Mama, please
    It's Christmas Eve and these shoes are just her size
    Could you hurry, sir, Daddy says there's not much time
    You see she's been sick for quite a while
    And I know these shoes would make her smile
    And I want her to look beautiful if Mama meets Jesus tonight

    Bridge:
    I knew I'd caught a glimpse of heaven's love
    As he thanked me and ran out
    I knew that God had sent that little boy
    To remind me just what Christmas is all about

    Repeat Chorus
