Anyway, not trying to be rude, but it's just a difference of interpretation/perception.

I mentioned it to explain why my selections were blatantly Santa-related!

Of the religious songs/hymns, I love "O Holy Night" (I have sung it in many choirs and it never fails to move me even when I am reaching for the top soprano notes, LOL.) The Coventry Carol and Carol of the Bells are beautiful. I admit I go to the midnight carol service on Christmas Eve just so I can sing along to all the old church carol favourites. And I occasionally attend a singalong "Messiah" so I can get that university choir feeling on "Unto Us a Child is Born"!

My S/O prefers the version of "Twelve Days of Christmas" that complains about all the hassles. I can't recall who does it.

My all-time favorite is The Christmas Song sung by Nat King Cole. My second favorite is All I Want for Christmas is You sung by Vince Vaughn and the Valiants--you gotta love this cheesy video:

Really like "Mary Did You Know". I always got so excited the first time I heard it come on the radio for the season.

This happened yesterday followed by surprising tears. My Pastor's wife passed away unexpectedly (at age 41) and all of a sudden I had a flashback of her singing it one Christmas service. Bittersweet.

Now I'm reminiscing about my college days and singing at Readings and Carols. All the hymns like O Come All Ye Faithful had a descant part and all us altos would always sing our heart outs on the high notes.

And someone has to have the Grumpy cat pic that says I peed in your Christmas shoes. I think I stole it off here last year.

"I'll be home for Christmas" just about every version ever done. The first time I really heard it was the year I moved to Florida, and it was the first time any member of my (rather large) family wasn't home for Christmas. I was a hot mess, and so were all my siblings and my parents. I sobbed my way through that Christmas, and this song still makes me tear up every. single. time. (I'm actually tearing up right now just writing this!)

O Holy Night, I always get chills and tears in my eyes just listening to it. I've heard many renditions and Celine Dion sings it incredibly beautifully.

I am also a lover of O Holy Night. I find it haunting and so gentle.
At our house, Grandma gets run over by a reindeer very, very often!

Excellent choices!

Little Drummer Boy and Do You See What I see

My DS likes these 2!

I mentioned it to explain why my selections were blatantly Santa-related

I gotcha! I hope you weren't offended by my rudeness! lol@ reaching for the top soprano notes... I know exactly what you mean!

My all-time favorite is The Christmas Song sung by Nat King Cole

Sad- GREAT choice. He has a very nice voice and is one of my all time faves too. And I'm subtracting points for the cheesy video! And subtracting points for putting Vince Vaughn and the Valiants- I was expecting a super funny parody but got THAT whatever it was, Vince VANCE and the Valiants. j/k

I agree. It is a beautiful song. (((NIK)))

I'll have to check out her version- I love her!

Most of the time I sang top soprano, but I really had to hurt to sing that descant! So I was allowed to drop to second soprano or even alto.

I'm pretty much a Time-Life girl, having ripped all those Classic Christmas Songs CDs to my itunes acct so I can play them in the car all season.

My favorite is O Holy Night (Luciano Pavarotti's version does me in),but I also love Mel Torme's "Christmas Song," Bing's "White Christmas," Dean Martin's "Let It Snow," Elvis's "Blue Christmas" and every Christmas Carol that Ed Ames recorded

Crushed1- I looked up Celine's version. It was haunting and beautiful. Gave me chill bumps like crazy.

ISPIFFD- same with Pavarotti's. I found a version of him singing it solo and another of a duet with Placido Domingo.

All 3 versions were outstanding. Thank you both for the recommendations.

Bing and David's duet is at the top of the list. I thought that was the coolest thing when I was a kid, so I taped it.......on VHS. Remember VHS?

Bob Seger's Little Drummer Boy, Elvis's Blue Christmas and Darlene Love singing Baby Please Come Home, all for nostalgic reasons. It's not Christmas without them. Also, Charlie Brown (Vince Guaraldi Trio) music.

O holy night -- The Barra MacNeils.
