Favorite Christmas Songs

'Tis the season, so I thought it might be fun for people to post some of their favorites. Contemporary, classic, whatever makes you happy this time of year. I'll start with my personal favorite, Fairytale of New York by The Pogues. Not the most festive song, but just a fantastic song in general.



Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!

In my line of work, one learns to hate christmas music quickly. I imagine the same goes for anyone in retail.

Yeah, the park where my brewery is is having a huge Christmas event every night this month, so it blows my mind that we've been able to avoid piping Christmas music in at all times. But fortunately we haven't.

I'm not a super religious person. I do believe in a higher being (and the Christian God is the leader of the pack) but I'm not entirely sure about it but...

I prefer Hymns to Christmas Carols... I'd rather hear a song about Jesus right now than Frosty the Snowman

This one isn't technically a Christmas song, but it's on one of his Christmas EPs and is absolutely one of the most beautiful songs I've ever heard. I get choked up every time I hear it.

That would be nice. They're some of my favorite Christmas songs. A tradition at my house.

Not a contemporary classic, but always good for a laugh (don't watch with kids around)
