Feliz Navidad and Joyeux Noel!!!

This year I have been all about Christmas music... from traditional to amusing I have been excited by many, many Christmas songs. So cozy up, have a Christmas cookie and share you favorite Christmas carol/song!

My favorite song this year has to be There's No Place Like Home for the Holidays:

(There's No Place Like) Home for the Holidays

Oh, there’s no place like home for the holidays,
For no matter how far away you roam -
When you long for the sunshine of a friendly gaze,
For the holidays - you can’t beat home, sweet home!

I met a man who lives in Tennessee, and he was headin’ for
Pennsylvania and some homemade pumpkin pie;
From Pennsylvania folks are travelin’ down to Dixie’s sunny shore;
From Atlantic to Pacific -
Gee, the traffic is terrific!

Oh there's no place like home for the holidays,
'Cause no matter how far away you roam -
If you want to be happy in a million ways,
For the holidays - you can’t beat home, sweet home

I met a man who lives in Tennessee and he was headin’ for
Pennsylvania and some homemade pumpkin pie;
From Pennsylvania folks are travelin’ down to Dixie’s sunny shore;
From Atlantic to Pacific -
Gee, the traffic is terrific!

Oh, there’s no place like home for the holidays,
'Cause no matter how far away you roam -
If you want to be happy in a million ways,
For the holidays - you can’t beat home, sweet home!
For the holidays - you can't beat home, sweet home!

What's your favorite carol? Share the lyrics or just your favorite line, or get tuned up for next weekend's carolling with a phone post!

Do You Hear What I Hear?

Happy Holidays!

I don't know what my favorite carol is. Maybe "Have yourself a Merry Christmas."

But I love your layout! pretty!

Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas is definitely another great carol...

Thanks for the compliment on the layout!

This is my favorite whimsical Christmas song and I sang it in my phone post last year. I will definitely have to resurrect it!

Music is a wonderful thing this time of year or at any time of year, for that matter.

Anyhow, despite religious affiliations, my favorite Christmas song is 'O Holy Night'.

O Holy Night! The stars are brightly shining,
It is the night of the dear Saviour's birth.
Long lay the world in sin and error pining.
Till He appeared and the soul felt its worth.
A thrill of hope the weary world rejoices,
For yonder breaks a new and glorious morn.
Fall on your knees! Oh, hear the angel voices!
O night divine, the night when Christ was born;
O night, O Holy Night , O night divine!
O night, O Holy Night , O night divine!


Mmmm... now I feel all sorts of warm inside. :-)

*hugs you*

I love the one's in minor keys - We Three Kings, God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen. Those chords give me happy shivers.

God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen and I Heard the Bells on Christmas Day are my favorite traditional songs, although Oh Holy Night is beautiful too.

I don't want a lot for Christmas
There is just one thing I need
I don't care about the presents
Underneath the Christmas tree
I just want you for my own
More than you could ever know
Make my wish come true...
All I want for Christmas is
You... yea yea

Jingle Bells is my all time fav, just because I will randomly sing it anytime of the year. I also sang it last year for the christmas carol post too I think.

Hee I like Jingle Bells but I think it was over played when I was little or something. Now, it might be my least favorite Christmas carol!

Hmmm. I listened to "I'll Be Home for Christmas" a lot in writing my Ficmas story, but I've found myself singing "Let It Snow" a lot... With a certain amount of smugness because there's no way it'll actually snow.

I LOVE Let it Snow and Baby It's Cold Outside...
