I wish I celebrated so I could give you one, but I don't know any except the "ding, fries are done, ding fries are done" from The Family Guy

Im a traditionalist. I like Oh Holy Night, For Unto Us a Child is Born and What Child is This.

I HATE Baby its Cold Out There. the lyrics are really creepy.

The Carol of the Bells is my fav, God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen is a close second. The Allelujah Chorus from Handel's Messiah always gives me thrill too (I especially love the "pop up" chorals that you find on YouTube).

The Pretenders, 2000 Miles
He's gone,
2000 miles,
Is very far.
The snows falling down.
It's colder day by day.
I miss you.
The children were singing,
He'll be back at Christmas time.
And these frozen and silent nights,
Sometimes in a dream,
You appear.
Outside under the purple sky,
Diamonds in the snow,
Sparkle.
Our hearts were singing,
It felt like Christmas time.
2000 miles.
Is very far through the snow
I'll think of you
Wherever you go.
He's gone,
2000 miles,
Is very far.
The snows falling down,
It's colder day by day.
I miss you.
I can hear people singing,
It must be Christmas time.
I hear people singing,
It must be Christmas time.
Here we are, trapped in the amber of the moment. There is no why.
~Kurt Vonnegut Jr.

Absolutely my fave!

I can't stand most of her stuff, but her version of Silent Night is goosebump inducing.

This is one of my favorites! I also like Stevie Nicks' version of Silent Night.

On a less serious note, I also love Frosty the Dope Man. :crazy:
