~O Holy Night
~Gabriel's Message
~O Come O Come Emmanuel
~Carol of the Bells
~Lo How a Rose E're Blooming
~Do They Know it's Christmas
and a fun one
~Grandma Got Run Over By A Reindeer (it has to the Irish Rovers version though)

I love them all, but here are the different ones I like!!
Grandma Got Run Over By A Reindeer (hehe)
The one where the little boy wants to buy shoes for his dying mom for Christmas to meet Jesus in. I cry every time I hear it!
And the one with the little girl whos name is Mary Christmas and all she wants is someone to adopt her.

Anything done by Nat King Cole, but especially The Christmas Song.
I also love Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas and Carol of the Bells.

As far as fun stuff goes, I like "Christmastime in Hollis Queens" (Mama's cookin' chicken and collard greens!) by Run DMC.

Course mine are not "traditional" Christmas Hymns and we don't sing them in Church but they ARE beautiful!

ONE THING THOUGH ----! I cannot see to drive at night and had to miss the Choir's of my city and my neighboring city singing at Church the other night. The one song I especially wanted to hear was Mary Did you Know.

THEN yesterday at Chuch my OWN Church Choir sang it. UNREAL!

My favorite carols are "Carol of the Bells" and "O Holy Night", probably because they were always my favorite to sing in choir in school.

My favorite (really) non-traditional Christmas song is "Dead By Christmas" by Hanoi Rocks. Yeah, I'm warped.

My favorite Christmas song of all time is "O Little Town of Bethlehem"!
I looooove Christmas music!! I've been listening to it constantly since the beginning of November!
