Default Poll: What is your favorite Christmas song?

Josh Grobans & Charlotte Church duet of the "Prayer" is still my all time favorite, it gives me goosebumps.

I think I have that on a Church CD. I like the one with Bing Crosby and David Bowie(Little Drummer Boy-Peace on Earth mix).

My new one is the Tran-Siberian Orchestra's Christmas Canon. And they will be in NYC soon. Boy, would I love to see them performing it live.

Have you ever seen Charlotte Church live? I saw her at a Christmas show and got the chance to talk to her. She is a lovely young lady and Groban seems nice too. A perfect match up for a duet.

This may seem a bit odd to many of you, but my favorite is

"Fairytale Of New York" by The Pogues.

This is a really hard question. Will took my son's favorite. I think either O Come, O Come Immanual, or Lo 'Ere a Rose Lay Blooming. No, In the Bleak Midwinter.

There are so many of them it is hard to choose. Silver Bells, O Holy Night, etc. etc. My favorite singer for this music is probably Charlotte Church. She has an amazing voice! Mannhiem Steamroller has some great instrimentials. Even ol' Elvis was a fantastic vocalist for Christmas music.

Silent Night is my favourite - probably because of Bob Hope. When he entertained the troops - and we saw it on tv - they always ended with Silent Night - and the men would all be crying and we would be crying as well watching it.

For fun I like Felice Navidad - it's so upbeat - and when the kids did it at a Christmas concert years (ok eons) ago - I learned the words because they rehearsed it 27/7

There are so many I love, and to this day, anything Christmasy by Johnny Mathis means true Christmas to me, because he was my mom's favourite, and she used to play his (very old) Christmas album every year. Last year, I bought her a new CD of his old Christmas songs, which I have now. Think I'll go play it.....

BTW, has anybody ever heard Bob Rivers' "Twisted Christmas" collection?
Hysterically funny re-makes of Christmas classics, with new, twisted lyrics.
If you haven't heard it, look for it!
