    Frosty the Red-nosed Angel

    What are your favorite winter holiday songs? There are too many to list on a poll.

    My wintry favorites are, in no particular order:

    1. Baby, It's Cold Outside - I enjoy the repartee between the singers.
    2. White Christmas - Can't go wrong with Bing. This is also one of my favorite winter movies.
    3. Santa Baby - I enjoy the creativity of the lyrics.
    4. Angels We Have Heard on High - This is a favorite because in church my mom really has fun playing with the vocals and as a kid it was so much fun to have my mom be silly in church.
    5. Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer - Just a fun song to sing.
    In the end, we will remember not the words of our enemies, but the silence of our friends. -Martin Luther King Jr.

    Awesome list. I would add in "I'll be home for Christmas" and "Winter Wonderland" to the list.

    My favorite Xmas song is "The Christmas Song," sung by Nat King Cole. "Must be Santa," by Bob Dylan is great too. I enjoy "The Twelve Days of Christmas" up to about the sixth day, then it gets old fast. "Silent Night" is lovely. "Santa Claus is Coming to Town" is fun.

    I like O Tannenbaum sung in German, O Christmas Tree in English not so much.

    O Tannenbaum, o Tannenbaum,
    wie treu sind deine Blätter!
    Du grünst nicht nur
    zur Sommerzeit,
    Nein auch im Winter, wenn es schneit.
    O Tannenbaum, o Tannenbaum,
    wie treu sind deine Blätter!

    O Tannenbaum, o Tannenbaum!
    Du kannst mir sehr gefallen!
    Wie oft hat nicht zur Weihnachtszeit
    Ein Baum von dir mich hoch erfreut!
    O Tannenbaum, o Tannenbaum!
    Du kannst mir sehr gefallen!

    O Tannenbaum, o Tannenbaum!
    Dein Kleid will mich
    was lehren:
    Die Hoffnung und Beständigkeit
    Gibt Trost und Kraft
    zu jeder Zeit.
    O Tannenbaum, o Tannenbaum!
    Das soll dein Kleid
    mich lehren.

    Why don't you knock it off with them negative waves?
    Why don't you dig how beautiful it is out here?
    Why don't you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?

    Are you sure you're not hurt ?
    No. Just some parts wake up faster than others.
    Broke parts take a little longer, though.

    'Merry Christmas to you' sung by Nat King Cole
    People will miss that it once meant something to be Southern or Midwestern. It doesn't mean much now, except for the climate. The question, “Where are you from?” doesn't lead to anything odd or interesting. They live somewhere near a Gap store, and what else do you need to know? - Garrison Keillor

    Love them all, but I'd add:

    Jimmy Reeves, C-H-R-I-S-T-M-A-S and

    Jackson Browne, the Rebel Jesus.

    Also have always loved "O Holy Night".

    Oh yeah and my absolute favorite is the Partridge Family, "Christmas Card"

    I've always thought that Joy to the World being sung at the conclusion of a candlelight Christmas Eve service was one of life's beautiful moments. Just seems to be such a feeling of hope and good feelings at that point.

    Sleigh Ride is also a tune I enjoy a lot, particularly when played by a whole orchestra.

    Around these parts many people think "Grandma Got Runned Over By A Reindeer" & "Merry Christmas From The Family" are favorites. NOT ME.

    IMHO:
    Frosty the Snowman
    Silent Night
    O'er How A Rose
    Let It Snow

    There's only one and I can't believe it hasn't been listed.

    "Grandma Got Run Over by a Reindeer"
