What's Your Favorite Christmas Song?

Christmas tunes are on the airwaves: tell us which songs get you into the holiday spirit.

Whether you love it (like I do), hate it (like Scrooge pre-transformation) or merely accept it as an unavoidable component of the holiday season, we at Patch want to hear your thoughts on Christmas music.  

What's on your Christmas playlist? Does Wham's, "Last Christmas," make you break out in song and dance? Do you serenade your special someone with Mariah Carey's, "All I Want for Christmas is You?" Does The Pretenders', "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas" get you into the holiday spirit?

Artists have been releasing Christmas albums in recent months: Blake Shelton's Cheers, It's Christmas, has been on my iPod this week.

Last year, we offered readers a poll to weigh in on their favorite songs, and no one tune was the clear winner. This year, we're simply asking:

What's your favorite Christmas song? Tell us in the comments.

Christmas music was played before Thanksgiving this year. It's way overdone and over commercialized. Christmas is portrayed as nothing but a time to spend money and go shopping by the majority of the media and companies. Unfortunetly Christmas music is shoved down our throats by corporate advertising instead of listened to as casual enjoyment. I cringe when I hear most songs because I immediately associate them with shameless ads.

"Happy Christmas (War is Over)" by John Lennon.

The Little Drummer Boy (pretty much any version makes me cry) 12 days of Christmas by John Denver and the Muppets Greensleeves. I LOVE Christmas music!!

Anything other than "Jingle Bells" which is a song that has nothing to do with Christmas or any other holiday. For that matter neither do "Winter Wonderland", "Sleigh Ride" or "Let it Snow"

O'Holy Night What Child Is This Silver and Gold by Burl Ives. Burl Ives just says Christmas to me no matter what he sings.
