I know some people prefer carols and others like cheesy pop records

My own Christmas favourites are the Pogues and Kirsty McColl's 'Fairytale of New York', Slade's 'Marry Christmas' and John Lennon's 'Happy Christmas (War Is Over)'.  The for carols, O Come All Ye faithful and Hark The Herald Angels Sing.

I like Little Drummer Boy very much too and last year my school choir sang Carol of the Bells in the original (Ukrainian, I think), I actually like it better than the English version, but generally it's just a beautiful carol and Have yourself a Merry little Christmas is very nice too. Did you know that Silent Night is actually from Austria?

I love "Carol of the Bells" (David Foster's version is my fave), but my all-time favorite is "O Holy Night."  I was totally mesmerized when I heard Josh Groban's version for the first time.  But then, he does have that effect on me.    I also like the adorable version of "Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer" by Jewel and her mother.

My favorite "modern" Christmas song is "My Grownup Christmas List," by Kelly Clarkson.

But I always thought "Silent Night" was German.

Christmas/Sarajevo 12/24 by The Trans Siberian Orchestra is one of my favorites!  It is so amazing!  I have never heard Carol of the Bells have the power these musicians give it!

Also, I love Ave Maria.  It isn't necessarily a Christmas song, but we tend to hear it during the season a lot.  Andrea Bocelli's, Celine Dion's, and Josh Groban's versions are my favorites.

Yeah... I always find it kind of sad that Austrian stuff gets mistaken for German, but well  I can't believe I haven't heard Last Christmas at all this year, yet....Hurray!

My favourite all time Christmas record is Ring Solstice Bells by Jethro Tull. I guess I'm showing my age a bit with that choice.

One of the most beautiful ones I know is "Oi Jouluyö" (I don't know the english name for that...) Anyway, it's composed by Adolphe Adam, and it has very flowing and rising melody. I hope that helps.

I like Jingle Bell Rock too.

I wish I could say the same.  GAWD, I hate that song!  That's the thing about some pop/rock stars; they seem to think if a song contains the word "Christmas," that makes it a Christmas song.

As for the Austrian/German thing, it's probably because the languages are so similar.  But it was the German version of "Silent Night" ("Stille Nacht"), as well as a story I heard about the song's author, that threw me.

I don't know there are so many different ones I like but I think my favorite ones would have to be:

1. "Baby It's Cold Outside" by Dolly Parton and Rod Stewart.
2. " Mary Did You Know" by Winona Judd and Kenny Rogers it always
    makes me cry.

Haven't heard any of those versions of "Mary," but the first version I ever heard was a choral arrangement we did at my old church back in SC several years ago.  It was absolutely gorgeous -- nearly made me cry.

O Come All Ye Faithful has always been my favorite......I just remember singing carols on the last day of school in grade school......it was the only time I ever felt accepted and at peace when I was at that school. With the whole school singing it together....it was just so peaceful and harmonic and beautiful.


And the whole of Josh Groban's Christmas CD is amazing.


And you can't have Christmas without the Chipmunks or Charlie Brown Christmas CDs.

I like the Christmas songs sang by a child choir. Maybe because it's cute, and Christmas belongs to children especially, if there's some in the family.
