    My Favorite Song is How great thou Art – Pentatonix Ft. Jennifer Hudson – It reminds me of my papa and gives me chills every time I hear it. By far my favorite Christmas song of all time… Reminders of the REASON for the SEASON!!!

    • Carla Woodhull says:

      White Christmas- I grew up with this song and the movie.. Was the one movie we all watched together every year growing up.. Mom has been gone 12 years now but I still watch it and feel as if she’s with me.. I’ve carried on the tradition with my own kids too.. GREAT MEMORIES

  • Kim Tetley says:

    Grandma got run over by a reindeer, because it makes me laugh.

    My favorite it Bing Crosby’s White Christmas….. As a kid my grandparents always played the classics while we helped decorate the Christmas tree… Grandpa always sang along with this one.

  • Mindy Gotz says:

    I’ll be home for Christmas is my fave . I lived 369 miles away from my mom and I would miss her a lot but now I’m less than a mile away and I see her every week. My mom is the best.

    I love Baby it’s Cold Outside – doesn’t matter who is signing it, it just makes me smile and sing along…very badly hahahaha!

  • Melissa Callaway says:

    Nothing gets me in the Christmas spirit more than Silent Night. It is such a classic and reminds us of the Reason of the Season.

  • Teresa says:

    Silent Night by the Temptations. Growing up, my family always played this song on Christmas Eve as we opened gifts. Now I play Silent Night on Christmas Eve while I prepare Christmas dinner.

  • Lana Gardner says:

    The River, covered by Sarah McLachlan. Her voice is so absolutely amazing, even my husband loves her rendition of this song.

  • Emma says:

    I love ROCKIN AROUND THE CHRISTMAS TREE. It just gets me in a happy holiday kinda mood. Cant help but dance!!

  • Lisa Pierucci says:

    White Christmas has always been one of my favorites. I also love Halleluia for the beautiful harmonies it has. Almost any Christmas song can bring a smile to my face and many of them will also bring a tear to my eye for all the happy memories and feelings they bring up.

  • KIM MCEWEN says:

    My absolute favorite Christmas Song is Brenda Lee – Rocking around the Christmas Tree! This song was always the song my Grandmother would play for me when we’d decorate the tree… and then they had it in my favorite Christmas Movie Home Alone… I’ve watched that movie with my kids every year since it’s release and still get many many laughs out of it! Happy Holidays too all and safe and healthy 2018.

  • Laura says:

    Sleigh Ride is my favourite. It always makes me think back to when I was a kid and we had to learn a bunch of songs for Christmas concerts or just to drive the teachers crazy with!

    My FAVORITE Christmas song is Hark how the Bells! I sung in choir for many years and it is fun to sing, plus it epitomizes the spirit of Christmas to me. I love taking time during this busy season to bring cheer to others, and this song does it!
    “Christmas is here,
    Bringing good cheer,
    To young and old,
    Meek and the bold.”

    Merry Christmas!

  • Darla Young says:

    White Christmas has always been my favorite. As a California girl we just don’t ever see it and I always dream of it.

  • Mryia Williams says:

    One of my favorites is It’s Beginning to Look a lot Like Christmas. My grandma would always turn on music while we decorating and making cookies. When she would hear that song she would always hum along.
    She passed away in October and I brought home her recipe box so that I can make some family favorites for all of us this season.

  • Stephanie Justiniano says:

  • Melissa Temple says:

    There’s so many great ones to choose from! I think “Take A Walk Through Bethlehem” Trisha Yearwood. It’s about how we should slow down and focus on the reason for Christmas.

    In love with “Where are you Christmas?” By Faith Hill 😍 May not be an old school classic but such a beautiful song! Makes me feel like a little girl again and reminds me that even as I get older Christmas and everything the holiday stands for never changes as we grow 🙂

  • Nikki Train says:

    It’s my favorite because it’s calming! I like to relax with family for the holidays and this song just helps us wind down.

  • Carol Of The Bells by Lindsey Stirling. When a song gives you goosebumps you know it’s just that good!!

  • Lys Derry says:

    Santa Baby, sung by Eartha Kitt, is my all-time favourite holiday song. It’s cheeky, funny, and completely mercenary, and the lyric where she asks for a ring, “and I don’t mean on the phone,” makes me snicker every time.

  • Victoria Loder says:

    I love White Christmas by Bing Crosby!

  • Florence Hearn says:

    Baby it’s cold outside. Mostly because you can either sing it more “sexy” or traditional .it is just an all over good song. And it wouldn’t be a Christmas without it Playing

  • Shiela Legg says:

    Silent Night.

  • Jean B says:

    I love HOLLY JOLLY CHRISTMAS sung by Burl Ives in ‘Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer’. Reminds me of watching the show w/my family when I was young and my parents had Burl Ives records as well.
    It’s an upbeat happy song!

  • Jennifer Ditty says:

    Grandma got run over by a reindeer. This is only a recent favorite. I found a singing moose that my 18mo old loves. I push the belly to make that song come on and he grabs and cuddles the moose. This could go on for hours.

  • Karen Hardy says:

    Feliz Navidad by Boney M is my fave. There are so many faves, but I think this one because it makes you happy and want to dance around. Lots of fun

  • Derek Gardiner says:

    My Favorite Christmas song is O Holy Night!!!

  • Tina says:

    I’ve always loved Peace on Earth/The Little Drummer Boy by Bing Crosby and David Bowie. I think their voices complement each other beautifully, and I like the song.

  • Jen says:

    “Believe”by Josh Groban from The Polar Express soundtrack! I absolutely love this song because it reminds me of when I was a kid at Christmas time. The song helps to bring back all the wonderful memories at a christmas I had growing up. It truly captures the joy and magic of a Christmas. I still remember just how excited I got on Christmas Eve and I could hardly contain myself. We would always have a nice Christmas Eve dinner early with all of our lights on and sparkling with christmas carols playing gently in the background. Then after dinner my sister and I would turn up the good old Boney M Christmas c.d. and have a swinging dance party. We would all sing the top of our lungs and dance like there was no tomorrow. Then We would get all cleaned up in a new Christmas dresses and head out to Christmas Eve candlelight service at my Grandpa’s big old church where he was the minister. I can still remember the sheer excitement because I knew that Santa was on his way. I always had knots in my tummy just from excitement and having very little patience and when it became time for candlelight when they dimmed the lights and the organist began playing Silent Night and we all began singing holding ou thinking lit candles, and my tiny hands were so shaky I just wanted to get through it because I had no patience at all. Once we got back home we always made hot chocolate, put on a Muppet’s Christmas Carole or A Christmas Story, and open a couple of presents. It truly was the best time of the year, and I still feel that way today as an adult. I still feel very warm, peaceful, and joyful in my heart during the Christmas season! 🎄❤️🎄💚

  • Karlene Gillott says:

    I love With Bells On (I”ll Be Home) Kenny and Dolly classic it encompases everything about our Christmas celebrations and preparations every year.

  • Alex Wheeler says:

    A Mad Russians Christmas -Trans Siberian Orchestra. I just love all the instruments in it.

  • Taya Schram says:

    Too hard to choose just one, but for this I’ll say Straight No Chaser’s version of The 12 Days of Christmas. Big fan of a cappella and the comedy in this song!

  • Dee Perrault says:

    It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year by Andy Williams. Just hearing the beginnings of the song puts right back to when My sisters and I, with all our kids, would spend Christmas Eve night at my mother’s very small apartment so we could all be together all day Christmas. It was the BEST!!! We still have the most wonderful gettogethers at Christmas and remember those who are no longer with us.

  • Lisa Stolberg says:

    O Holy Night by Josh Groban. It’s simply beautiful! Oh and the classic Silent Night.

  • Joanne McCauley says:

    “All I want for Christmas is you” from my favourite Christmas movie “Love Actually” always gets me in the holiday spirit 😊

  • Genevieve M says:

    I like hearing Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays by NSync come on the radio! It brings me right back to high school!

  • Nicole McKenna says:

    My favourite Christmas song is – It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas. It’s my favourite time of year, and I can enjoy Christmas movies, festive drinks, and experiencing the season. The song always reminds me of when I was little, and getting excited to enjoy the season with my family.

  • Ursula Seastrand says:

    O Holy Night… I love it because it tells about the reason for the season – Jesus’ birth, and when I was young, we had a man at our church whose voice was just perfect for the song and would give you goose bumps. Whenever I hear the song, in my head I hear his voice. Just beautiful!

  • Susan Hubbard-Gillan says:

    My favorite Christmas song of all time is Silent Night. When I was in 4th grade, I was to sign the whole song for our Christmas concert. I had fell ill a few days before and wasn’t sure if I was going to make it. My mother had brought me so I could sign the song. I remember having just enough energy for this song. By the time I finished, you could see every adult in tears and was moved by how much Grace I had signing Silent Night. From that moment, it was and will always be my favorite to sing!

  • Katy says:

    Mary did you know – love pentatonix version right now 💜

    I gotta say jingle bell rock, its my daughter’s favorite! I love watching her dance around singing her little heart out ❤️

  • Megan Blemler says:

    I love the song “I’ll be home for Christmas”

  • Brandi Mott says:

    I can’t choose just one favorite song because I enjoy so many. Mostly classics, like Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree – Brenda Lee, Sleigh Ride – The Ronettes & Ella Fitzgerald, White Christmas – Drifters, Santa Baby – Eartha Kitt, Jingle Bell Rock – Bobby Helms, Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas – Judy Garland. Just to name a few! I grew up listening to all of these songs. My mom loves Christmas and we always listened to music on the way to Christmas at grandma’s or our Christmas light drive. Gives me warm feelings and wonderful memories. These songs always bring me into the mood of Christmas.

  • Alyssa Weber says:

    My daycare children and I dance around the house to that song 🙂

  • LILA WATSON says:

    “Baby outs cold outside” and “White Christmas “. Both songs almost always either make me sentimental and teary eyed. Or make me want to cuddle up on the couch by the tree with my family and watch Christmas movies with goodies. I love this time of the year.

  • Amy Ward says:

    Love Mary Did You Know… by the Pentonix.
    Also love the Carpenters version of Merry Christmas Darling.
