    Smile What is your favorite Christmas song?

    I grew up singing German songs for Christmas in our little Lutheran church and still remember "Kling Glichen" and ending Christmas Eve service with "Stille Nacht". In college I learned a medieval song "Adam Lay Embounded" and my children learned in their school "Bring a Torch Jeannette Isabella". I also like "Coventry Carol" from our time in England, and we decorate our tree by "Once in David's Royal City. I love to hear and sing along to many more. What songs do you enjoy?

    "Do you hear what I hear?" and "I Heard the Bells on Christmas Day" "Coventry Carol" and "Bring a torch Jeannette Isabella" are good too.

    When I was a kid I would have solos for the youth choir. Silent Night and Away in the Manger were always my favorite.


    Unfortunately I nearly lost my voice permanently due to severe repeated "tonsilitis" when I was 12. You don't want me to sing now!!

    'White Christmas' by Bing Crosby is my secular favorite. For traditional Christmas carols, I really like 'Oh Holy Night'.

    Angels We have Heard on High and White Christmas are my favorites. We always ring in the holiday on Thanksgiving evening by watching White Christmas.

    Oh Holy Night is my favorite. It brings to mind a church with a steeple set high on a hill that we drove by on the way to my aunt's house every Christmas Eve when I was a kid. There was always snow on the ground.

    My favorite is "Mary Did You Know?" You can hear it on you tube . Brings me to tears every time I hear it.
    When it seems like the world is falling to pieces remember that the pieces are falling into place. We are nearing closer to the End Times.

    Silent Night is my favorite. I sometimes go to a National Park near here and climb a mountain path and sing it for me on Christmas eve.

    "Who is He in Yonder Stall" is my favorite, especially as it's performed by the SMS men's choral group. I tear up every time I hear this song.

    I like them all, but my new favorite is - Becky Kelley - Where's the Line to See Jesus. I have never heard it on the radio, but it is such a very true Christian song. Here is a link to it, I hope that you will give it a listen. I always cry while listening to it. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OExXItDyWEY

    Dear LenaBeena
    I was trying very hard to remember a german christmas song with the name "Kling Glichen" until the bell rang! It is called "Kling Glöckchen" and means ring little bell. I love that song too and look forward to christmas and singing all those traditional songs with children and grandchildren.

    All I Want For Christmas Is You. I like all the old ones and almost, if not all new ones. Ones with a lively beat appeals to me also.

    Mine is Mary did you know and O Holy Night. I love all things Christmas, but this year I am having trouble getting myself going. It is was to warm here for christmas. I want and seem to need snow. For me that is a big part of my christmas tradition. I love snow. the more the better.

    Father christmas by emerson lake and palmer...christmas cant come till i hear it.
    the song is so beautiful. Also, if youre hoping to see someone, thats when i started to love it about 30 yrs ago. Go to you tube and listen, not what you think. No " loud" music, very nice melody.
