Silver Bells. My grandpa and I used to sing it together before he died.

Mine as well, and for almost the same reason, except I never got to know my grampa very well.

I also like Star of Wonder, Star of Night, especially this version by Tori Amos (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aKZnV7Q1Ouo)

For contemporary Christmas songs, it's hard to beat a bit of Paul Simon (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DA81JjI40V0).

I Heard the Bells on Christmas Day is my absolute favorite and the lyrics are awesome. (The new version that's been around the last few years is nice too, but I like the classic one better.)

Snoopy's Christmas. Used to make me tear up a little bit when I was a kid.
Huh. I just read the Wikipedia entry for it and they make a special mention of how popular it is in New Zealand.

I'm not a special little snowflake after all...

None.

I dislike having music shoved down my throat and turn the station whenever they try to slip one past me.

Sorry.

I dislike having music shoved down my throat as well, particularly Christmas music before Thanksgiving, which drove me up a wall in stores here this year. But I do have favorite Christmas music, when I choose to listen to it.

My most favorite would have to be Little Drummer Boy. It has a great message to it about giving of your talents instead of materially and is beautiful song.

Actually, this isn't true. I do enjoy the Baltimore favorite, "Walking In An Essex Wonderland. It's sung to the tune of Winter Wonderland (naturally) in an "Ease Ballmere ax-ant."

Here are part of the lyrics...

...We're callin Donnie up in jail
We're raising money to post his bail
Iron Maiden is cranked and uncle Jimmy is tanked
We're walkin in a Essex wonderland...

Ah Baltimore...there's no place like it, Hon.

All of Corelli's Christmas concerto but especially this part (http://youtu.be/nc2bm4URSso). It's one of the most sublime pieces of music I know.

Sat Nam! (literally "Truth Name"--a Sikh greeting)

Angels We Have Heard On High.

Closely followed by O Holy Night, especially sung by Leontyne Price. A black opera singer singing "Chains shall he break, for the slave is still our brother" is hard to beat.

Blessings,

Siri Kirpal

I figured this was in keeping with the basic thread topic.

Does anybody else enjoy changing the lyrics to Christmas songs?

I do it all the time.

Such as:
Chestnuts roasting on an open fire,
Jack Frost ripping off your nose.

AND

Have a holly, jolly Christmas,
It's the best time of the year,
I don't know if there'll be snow,
But have a cup of beer.

Dashing through the snow
in one whore's open sleigh

How about you?
