I recently asked about favorite holiday movies, and today, I thought I would move the discussion to a different art form–music, specifically holiday songs.  For me, I think of two in particular that are among my favorites: one is “Snoopy’s Christmas,” which I have loved since I was a child; another is “Little Drummer Boy,” which speaks to the importance of the poor and what they can contribute to the world.

I ask all of you: what is your favorite holiday song or songs?

  1. O’ Come All Ye Faithful, Bob Dylan’s
    version off his ‘Christmas in the Heart’
    album. It has the gravelly sound of
    hard won sincerity 😎 Unlike so many
    Christmas release albums 💰🤑
    Have a Very Merry One, Charles 🎄🎅

  2. To be completely honest with you, after hearing Christmas songs since early November I’m sick to death of them. However…..always at Christmas time we have on TV the British movie “Love Actually” (which incidentally I am also sick to death of) and my favourite song from that “Christmas movie” is Wherever You Will Go – by The Calling.
    When I was a kid back in Yorkshire over 50 years ago my Dad and his friends would go singing traditional Christmas carols around the village pubs and Inns….did you know “While Shepherds Watched Their Flocks by Night” can be sung to over 40 different traditional tunes? Interesting fact…but after the 4th or 5th version it can become a little monotonous to listen to. Merry Christmas to all….and to all a Good Night.

  3. Music, yes to that. It expresses so much.
    I have been playing “Little Drummer Boy” this morning. To me it shows that giving simply from your heart is what matters.
    Oh Helga Natt, ( oh Holy Night ) in Swedish.
    I must admit I love so many that will bring both tears and smiles.

  4. Difficult to say, as I really like many. But at first it was Annie Lennox’s version of “Angels from the Realms of Glory” that came to my mind.
    A Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to you,

  5. I love so much of Christmas music that I start playing it in November while I’m sewing or baking and I love to listen to the songs in German I have several CD’s Hands down, my favorite will always be the “Little Drummer Boy”.. I’ll play it over and over.
