Silent Night

What's your favorite holiday song?

I have many favorite holiday songs but I really love Silent Night. It was one of the first songs I remember singing in a Christmas pageant in the first grade, and now that I'm just a little bit older (heh) it really gets to me in a warm and fuzzy way... Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer is also up there. Rockin' Around the Christmas Tree and Jingle Bells are fun songs. The list of favorite holiday tunes is quite long. Heck... I'm a softy when it comes to holiday music. I usually purchase at least one new holiday music CD every Christmas season.

My favorite is Oh Holy Night. As for the CD, I'm going to Target tonight to get Josh Groban's new Christmas CD (as well as the new Harry Potter DVD ;)).

I love the song "Merry Christmas Baby" -- the one with the line that goes, "I haven't had a drink this morning, but I'm all lit up like a Christmas tree!"

But I also love "Welcome to Our World" by Michael W. Smith. And of course "The Best Christmas" by Christopher Cross.

Guess I just love it all! Can't wait to hear others chime in. Fun topic, Irene.

i love Enya's version of this song. it's one of my faves, but of course white christmas is my all time fave. it kind of has to be considering who my great uncle was. ;)

Silent Night is a good one. I don't listen to alot of Christmas music, though. I like listening to it all day on Christmas Day.

It's beginning to look alot like Christmas or anything Bing sings.

Mine are "Carol of the Bells" and "O Holy Night." The latter makes me shiver every time I hear it. I've also got a softspot for "A Charlie Brown Christmas."

I love O Holy Night....particularly a version by John Berry, a has-been country singer that most people dont know! But it is BEAUTIFUL!

Josh Groban's version is my close second. :)

Chantal2bfit,
I also love Josh Groban's version of O Holy Night. It gives me the chills. :)

Leslie,
LOL... I know that song!

Barbie2be,
Just about anything Enya sings is enchanting. And who is your great uncle?????????

Evelyne,
I'm a sucker for Christmas music. If you ever happen to need any,let me know and I'll burn a few tunes for you!

Anne,
Carol of the Bells used to be the only song I sort of knew how to fake on the piano... Other than that, it's chopsticks. It's looking like O Holy Night is a huge favorite.

Pat,
Yep, that one by Bing, for sure! His voice is like butter!

Pokey,
O Holy Night is lovely, and looking like the over-all favorite this year. I'll have to look up the John Berry version. I may even have it in my arsenal of holiday tunes.
