Default Your most loved Christmas songs

Spin off of Trollheart's thread. What do we all like listening to at Christmas?

This is one of my favourites:


The Darkness - Christmas Time (Don't Let The Bells End) (Official Video) - YouTube

It's just daft.

I've got a bit of a soft spot for this and I don't like John Lennon. This song came on one Christmas at about 5 in the morning and I was lying in bed listening to the radio on my phone. I just remember being under the covers looking at the screen with this song playing and wanting to go downstairs and open my presents (I could have as I was about 15, but that's not the point.) When I hear this song now it reminds me of listening to the radio under my duvet and waiting to open my presents.

Pointless story there for you

Nah, it fits in with this thread being Christmas-y and heartwarming.

I was gonna add the Charlie Brown song to this post, but then I just realized it technically isn't a Christmas song. Darn holiday radio stations trying to confuse me for no apparent reason <<<

Really?! It's fantastic, and it had its share of commercial success. It's fantastic, and Freddie's voice with a Christmas tune has me all a-shudder.

Doesn't matter who sings it, I love this song. Just the right mix of traditional and cheesy without being grating (hah! Cheese/grate! I'm a comedic genius! Well, maybe not...) and it always cheers me up. Here are the rich tones of "Gentleman" Jim Reeves...
