When my son was an infant I rocked him to sleep every night, singing him three songs. Come Christmas, I'd switch them up. "Away In A Manger", "Silent Night", and a random song of choice (but never "Grandma Got Run Over by a Raindeer") were how I put my precious bundle to sleep every night during Christmas.My intent was to give him the Spirit of something Great. Something that will Guide him through Life. What's your favorite Christmas song and why? I'd love to hear from you.

Phyllis, this is so true of what's going on in the world today. It's sad, isn't it? I'll have to run over to You Tube and check it out. Thank you for sharing.
Maria, The Christmas Song is spot on. Your memory serves you well! I love "Mary Did You Know?" The first time I heard it I was absolutely blown away. Jordan Smith sang it last night on The Voice and did a wonderful job.
Shauna, missed it on The Voice. Sure wish I had heard it.
They might do a recap tonight. Tonight is the final where the winner will be announced.
Okay, so far I've heard favorites that are not traditional Christmas songs. I love learning from y'all. Traditions are carried on and changed to bring forth messages of we humans as we live and see time. Thank you for opening my eyes.
I hadn't heard this before. Thanks for turning me onto it. I listened to two renditions - Mariah Carey & U2. I liked U2 best. I read the lyrics too. The U2 YouTube followed with 'I Believe In Father Christmas'. That brought to me a moment of paus
Mary, I raised Catholic and I don't recall that song. I'll have to look it up on You Tube. Was that when Mass was held in Latin?
Shyron, I Googled the first and last songs you mention in your comment. They are so beautiful. I'm going to have a hard time choosing best answer, for sure. Everyone who's answered has widened my musical horizons.
I'm not familiar with that Stevie Wonder song. I'll have to check it out. Love James Brown and The Temptations. I'm having a lot of fun looking up and listening to the Christmas songs everyone is sharing here.
I agree with you, Tinaya. The important thing for any song to be heard and felt is to be able to hear the lyrics and have them paint a picture in the listeners' minds.
John, that's such a happy song. I love it too!
Silent Night is one of my favorites, too Greenhousewife. And I agree with you about Bing Crosby. I always think of Christmas when I hear him sing.
