    Default Favourite Christmas Song/s?

    Ok, 25th November is commonly known as the official day to start listening to Christmas songs!

    So I was just wondering what your favourite Christmas song is? Or if you have more than one.

    My personal favourite isnt too well known, but it is from Home Alone 2. Its one of the most beautiful songs I have ever heard! Its called Christmas star.

    I'm a huge sucker for Bing Crosby's "White Christmas" There have been so many many remakes of that song over the years but for me his still is the best.

    Also, I just adore Elton John's "Ho Ho Ho (Who'd Be A Turkey At Christmas)".
    It's very cheeky :P

    ....'sitting here on Christmas Eve
    With A brandy in my hand
    I've had a few too many
    And it's gettin' hard to stand'

    'I keep hearing noises
    From my fireplace
    I must be going crazy
    Or the brandy's won the race'....

    "Do They Know It's Christmas" performed by Band Aid is one of these songs which I listen so often on Christmas time. also Michael's "Heal The World", "We Are The World", "You Are Not Alone" and all these beautiful ballads. Also J5's Christmas Album of course

    Another day is gone; I'm still all alone
    How could this be; You're not here with me
    You never said goodbye; Someone tell me why
    Did you have to go; And leave my world so cold...

    aaahhhh...its nice to find another person mention this song. i think Home Alone has a great Christmas soundtrack, both 1 and 2. this song gives me chills. i also like their Carol of the Bells version. i love choirs of children, reminds me when i was in choir as a kid i guess.

    Im a Christmas song freak, i can listen to them in summertime! i like the classic songs. the old fashioned sounding songs you hear every year on the radio. i dont really care for the modernized-trying-to-make-xmas music-popish-modern for pop stations. maybe some past songs from the 80's are okay. but with Destinys child's past christmas album (and among other artists) i can only stand two songs on there because it lacks traditional sounds im used to.

    theres so many great songs that artists redo over and over to mention. so i'll only say a unique one 'Hard Candy Christmas' /by Dolly Parton i like the lyrics and title.

    After watching "Home Alone 2" there was no doubt that "Jingle Bell Rock" would be my Christmas song forever - Love this song!

    "Aspenglow" is and will always be my favorite Christmas song of all time! Mainly for childhood attachments with it. I grew up with John Denver...my Dad always sang his songs on guitar - I'd often fall asleep at night hearing him playing out in the living room. Ever year when we decorated for Christmas...and often when we'd just turn out all the lights in the house except for the Christmas tree lights..and watch the snow fall outside our windows...we'd listen to this song. So it just feels very magical to me.

    Thanks for sharing that video, Michael's charity work and hospital visits didn't get noticed enough. How someone so kind/thoughtful/and loving can be treated as bad as he was is beyond me.
    Love you Mike.

    I love Merry christmas ( war is over ) and many many more will list them later.
