Other notable "modern" Christmas songs aside from "All I Want for Christmas is you"?
The only one I can think of is "All I want for Christmas is you"? written Mariah Carey and Walter Afanasieff. This was from 1994.
While all the classics are great, I'm just wondering if there's been a new development here, in the 2000-2012 time frame.
Fairytale of New York - The Pogues.
Here it is, Merry Christmas - Slade.
Riding Home for Christmas - Chris Rea.
I wish it Could be Christmas Everyday - Wizard.
Santa Baby - Kylie Minogue.
Ring Out The Solstice Bells - Jethro Tull.
Peace on Earth/Little Drummer Boy - david Bowie/Bing Crosby.
I think they are all post 2000.
I really like Ring Out The Solstice Bells. Fairytale of New York was surprising, not all that uplifting at all. Forgot about Santa Baby. Thanks for the response.
I have heard Noddy Holder, in an interview that ... Merry Chistmas - Slade, is re-released every year and that it sells about 100k copies per year. I would imagine that the Wizard and Jethro Tull records are also re-release each year.
"Christmas Eve (Sarajevo 12/24)" by Trans-Siberian Orchestra.
...or any of the three Christmas albums by Trans-Siberian Orchestra. They were all released in the late '90s/early '00s and they have a new five song EP available this year.
Christmas Time (Don't let the bells end) was released in 2003 by 'The Darkness'.
Plus Billy Idol released a Christmas album in 2007 I think (Yep Billy Idol did that!)
"Let It Snow" (1993) by Boyz II Men. I know that's earlier than your time frame but it's worth a mention as a very popular and beautiful modern Christmas song.

I have my personal favourites that range from John Lennon and Yoko Ono's War Is Over If You Want It through to I Wish It Could Be Xmas Everyday by Roy Wood and Wizard, not forgetting Fairytale of New York by The Pogues...

Just in the name of fun!!!!!! While I was trying to clean up some stuff off my computer I came across these. A couple of them made me smile even though they're probably as old as the hills. So it being Friday morning...

I noticed in your bio it says that you love the Lord. What is the reason you don't like to set this particular day aside? Not that it matters, I just thought I'd ask since you made a point of it.
