    What is your favorite Christmas song?

    It is hard for me to choose just one Christmas song for I truly love so many, but if I had to choose just one, it would be "I Wonder as I Wander."  This song rings so true to me, for I truly wonder ...

    Oh gosh, I like several. My favorite used to be "O Holy Night!" but then we had a cat that loved me to sing her "Silent Night". Although she got old and has now passed, I always think of her when I hear it. So yeah, guess that one is my favorite smile

      Hello Kevina Oyatedor, thank you for answering.  Those are all great songs indeed!  I actually heard a strange fact just this day that Jingle Bells was originally written as a song for Thanksgiving!  I was surprised!

    When it's all said and done I have to go with Nat King Cole's "The Christmas Song". It's a classic that never gets old.

    Like the others below, I definitely have so many!  I enjoy "O Come, O Come Emmanuel,"  I also like "Mary Did You Know" and "Rockin' Around The Christmas Tree" for a little (secular) variety.

      Hi ElleBee, yes, there are so many and it is so hard to choose for sure.  You have chosen a wonderful variety.  I really love "Mary Did You Know" too.

    I think Mary Did You Know? is a very powerful song. And I love Michael Card's Joseph's Song (best song by Mercy Me in my opinion).

    As far as traditional music nothing beats the joy and splendor of  Handel's Messiah. O Holy Night amazing. I Wonder as I Wander was down beautifully on Barbara Streisand's Christmas album.

      Hi lambservant, Yes, that is such a powerful song for sure.  I love Mercy Me and that song is really one of their best songs without a doubt!  O Holy Night is truly amazing and so beautiful, for it was truly a Holy Night!

    I like you love so many. Even Jingle Bells and Ave Maria ring into and through my soul. Which are such opposites. But there is a special song to me which will always be my special song. It is about a boy with absolutely nothing who wants to give so much to a newborn baby.
    To me it is the purity of a child come to earth to give his very soul to others. It is and will be song by countless little children to the awe and amazement of their parents, grandparents, aunts and uncles and those with none for Christmas. And it will every year bring tears of joy to countless as we celebrate the wonderment and grace of a newborn King.

    "Come they told me. A newborn King to see. How shall I honor Him?" And the child gives all he has by beating a drum, that in fact he must have used to guide the sheep in from the pasture to safety and comfort. This story and song remind me to follow that King as a child and with all I got.

    I never met a Christmas song I didn't like, but two that came to mind very quickly came straight out of my childhood.  Silent Night because my mother always, always sang that song to us after reading us the story of the birth of the Christ child.  And, I know you asked for just one....... but, there is Joy to the World.  My mother would remind us often that we can be the joy that the world so desperate need.

      Hi Dee aka Nonna, thank you so much for answering.  Oh, those are two of the most beautiful song no doubt!  I can understand how those would be held dear to your heart if your mother sang them to you. My grands love Angels We Have Heard on High.

    At this present moment in time, "Mary Did You Know" by Celo Green comes to mind because it is the last and newest song I heard that I thought was so beautiful. I played it repeatedly till I fell asleep when I first heard it. http://youtu.be/UooJtOvvZDo

    I agree with everyone else, there are so many and it is hard not to love most of them...but my favorites would be "O Holy Night" , "Go Tell It On the Mountain" and "The Little Drummer Boy".  Merry, Merry Christmas, everyone!
