Great list, Serg! Thanks for including the Glee version of "Baby It's Cold" :) In fact, thanks for taking the time to find multiple videos for each song. Y'all really are on a break aren't you?

Nice List... Can't Believe "Christmas Shoes" Didn't Make The List. This Song Makes Me Feel So Lucky To Have My Whole Family Around Me On Christmas :) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_fKI50MhzVM&feature=fvst

I love the fact the Little Drummer Boy is on here. It reminds me of running around the house banging various items together to play along with the drums in the song. (:

Happy Holidays :D

I'm deeply disappointed that no one voted for "Feliz Navidad." I love that song! What's the deal, folks?

Shame on you all!

Charyl said...

Awesome--"O Holy Night" made it to the list--and #1 even! The Groban version of it is one of my favorites. And thanks for reminding of "Happy Christmas." One of my favs and I completely forgot about it when putting in my vote.

Thanks for taking the time to compile these songs. :-)

Little Drummer Boy has always been my favorite Christmas Song. Any version is ok with me. BUT, I think it is BEST done with boys on drums. I would really like for a boy singer to try this for himself. Learn to tap a drum enough to do this song right.

Follow up post to my other one. This song is fast becoming one of my favorites.

What a great blog. It is getting a well deserved link at mine; thelp72980.wordpress.com

Keep up the great work. You may like my wikileaks category - I have some great reads from Zero Hedge & inforwars.com about Assange.

The one thing I miss about Christmas is the music and decorations. I am already missing all the stores taking down their christmas gear. My fave tune for t-mas (christ-mas with the cross of a "t") would be Renee Fleming's music.

I am still listening to the Christmas radio stations. Today between the sugary pop tunes they played oh holy night. not sure of the singer but it was great.
