    The Blenders are from my home town. I've seen them in concert I don't know how many times. They used to always put on a Christmas show in town and it was always the highlight of the holidays for me. They have a number of Christmas albums and DVDs available. I particularly enjoy "Nog".

    O Holy Night for me too! If there was ever a time I had the gift of singing it would be around Christmas when I hear that song.

    Oh geesh... It would be easier to pick the one or two I don't really like!!! LOL!!!
    -When it first snows... Winter Wonderland.
    -Really anything else... get a little annoyed with the little girl singing about her stuffed animal... I can't remember what that one is.
    - Sad & sappy - The Christmas Shoes & Josh Brolan's I'll be home for Xmas when all the miltary people are saying their Xmas wishes... I mean you might as well give me a Hanky!!!
    - I love Brian Setzer & Ann Margarets ( I just adore her) version of Baby It's Cold Outside!!! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YAyCfi7SQl4

    Sorry I just can't choose one...they all have special meanings & like hearing different versions of them... That must be why we always get a new Xmas cd every year... LOL!!!

    Although... I will say I really don't like to hear the Xmas music until after Turkey Day!!! Maybe Winter Wonderland the first day it snows & then I'm done until later.

    Seriously, Carol of the Bells (Ukraine Carol) and
    the Charley Brown Christmas music.
    I love playing those on a piano.

    I am like you, DizneeTeachR--I love them all (almost). I also like different ones for different moods and occasions. I truly annoy my husband, because on the 'catchy' ones, I tend to sing loudly, and I am not a very good singer! The holiday music just puts me into the spirit.

    If I have to pick just one I think I would pick "Baby It's Cold Outside," but there are so many more that I love!

    "White Christmas", but it has to be the version from the beginning of the movie, sung by Bing Crosby accompanied by a music box. My grandmother was a gigantic Bing Crosby fan, so that movie was so much of the holidays to the family. Yesterday was the anniversary of her passing so she's in my thoughts. That may be coloring my response a bit.

    I love the channel that plays only Xmas music around Dec 1 & through the whole month... One year I was sad to hear it go because I knew it was music that didn't have bad words in it that I had to worry about lil ones hearing. I hated that it left the airways... plus it was fun to have it on while we are playing in the snow!!!

    I love Christmas music and I used to secretly listen to it year round. I really can't pick a favorite at the moment. I already started playing it in my car last weekend:p
