Some of my Favorite Christmas Carols

I'm boppin' along to some of my Christmas music this morning (I've got 11 hours of it on my iPod, almost 200 songs) and decided to list some of my favorite stuff. In no particular order:

"Pat-a-Pan" (I have this acoustically on a CD called Midnight Clear...just love this)
"Christmas Don't Be Late" by Alvin and the Chipmunks (for limited playings)
"Little Drummer Boy"
"O Holy Night"
"What Child Is This"
"Let it Snow! Let it Snow! Let it Snow!"
"Sleigh Ride"
"God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen"
"Carol of the Bells"
Tchaikovsky's "The Nutcracker"
"Do They Know It's Christmas?" (again with the limited playing, though)

And I admit that "The Christmas Shoes" by NewSong will choke me up a little, although I do have to agree with another blogger's recent observation that this kid's mom is dying that night and he's at the mall??? That has possibly tainted the song for me.

OK, I'm avoiding housework (again), so I *guess* I'd better get back to it (kicking feet in protest).

What's some of *your* favorite Christmas music? mk

"Little Drummer Boy" (my favorite)
"Silent Night"
"O Holy Night"
"What Child Is This"
"God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen"
"Do They Know It's Christmas?"
"Angels Have We Heard on High"
"Hark the Herald Angels Sing"
"Grandma Got Run Over By A Reindeer"

I guess that my holiday music taste is centered on the more religious songs, except of course the last one. lol

Yes, *sniff, sniff*. Especially the part "Then he smiled at me, oh rum pa pum pum." Don't laugh.

Can't laugh, 'cause that's the part that crushes me every.single.time. mk
