Tonight it is probably Santa Baby . . this morning it was "I saw three ships" and "come on ring those bells, light the Christmas tree"

Sorry second time posting comment, my son was clicking buttons :)

Hi Ann, thanks again for inviting me over to your blog. Ok I wiped up the tears and I'm ready to throw my hat into the race again ... LOL

Enough about me, oh wait I must go back to me and tell you my favorite Christmas Song. I'm a HUGE Beatles Fan (Thanks Dad) and I love Paul McCartney sing Wonderful Christmastime.

Phew enough about me. How are you? :) Alexis

Nicole said...

Oh my...if I could listen to Christmas music all the time I would! (I guess it porbably wouldn't be as special then, huh?!)
Well...to me - nothing says Christmas like Nat King Cole singing "Chestnuts roasting on an open fire...jack frost nippin' at your nose..." Although...any Christmas song that Harry Connick Jr. sings makes me fell all Christmasy inside too! ;)

Fun contest! :)
Happy Holidays everyone...I'll be jammin' to Nat and Harry over here!

Jen said...

what a great giveaway!

congrats to the winnas!

The Rambler said...

I'm in, I'm in...who doesn't like to feel a little purdy.

My favorite song...is Silent Night. Something about it always always always makes me nostalgic and a tiny tear forms in the corner of my eye.

Crystal said...

"Oh Holy Night....the stars are brightly shiiiiiiiiining. It is the night of the dear Savior's birth"

I love the power of this song. It starts out so soft and calm....and by the chorus "FALL ON YOUR KNEES....OH HEAR THE ANGELS VOICES...." The strength of the words and the volume of the singing has overtaken your body. No longer are you just a listener to a song with lyrics, suddenly you're a part of something AMAZING!

This song always gets me. I love all the cutesy Christmas songs....but this is THE SONG that touches my heart in remembrance of the true reason for Christmas.

rachael said...

my favorite, by far, is baby it's cold outside. well, the past few years anyway. it's always changing! when i was little it was the little drummer boy.

Patois said...

You can cross your toes? Way impressive.

"Hark the Herald" by Nat King Cole.

Jen Sue Wild said...

I love Santa baby,
I also love Oh Holly night by Josh Groben (SP)

What a great giveaway BTW
Thanks..

L & W said...

My fave is "Baby, It's Cold Outside." So far off from the childish and cheery Christmas jingles (nothing against them), but I like that this song is a bit different.

Jennifer said...

I love Santa Baby and also good ole Jingle bells, Rudolph the red-nosed reindeer and Santa Claus is coming to town! I love singing the last three with my kiddos!
What a great giveaway! I hope I win!

Caitlin said...

Thank you for commenting on my blog earlier. ^_^

As odd as it is, I absolutely love the version of "Baby, It's Cold Outside" that Will Ferrell and Zooey Deschanel sing in the movie Elf. It's just so sweet!

But if it comes down to an entire album, it's not Christmas to me until I listen to Michael W. Smith's "Christmastime" CD. Fabulous.

Kate said...

Cool contest! I just wanted to thank you for visiting my bog and wishing my hubby well. You're very sweet. :)

Stacey Moore said...

All I want for Christmas is You by Mariah!!! I have been looking for a gift for my mother-in-law and this would be perfect b/c she collects the mimi perfume bottles!

I love Merry Christmas Baby by Bruce Springsteen (no, he didn't do it first, he did it best)

And Santa Claus Is Coming To Town by guess who? Oh my gosh, Bruce Springsteen has just been nominated again!

Wow, what a great night for Bruce!

And congratulations to all the winners of the last contest, especially me.

And I do follow you. And I don't need to win this one, I'll be just fine ;)

And I deleted my last comment because I swore a lot in it. Not really, the links I tried to use didn't work. Just Google Bruce Springsteen Christmas and you can see what I am talking about. Move over, Elvis ;)

Dee said...

I LOVE Silent night..and there are SOOO many people that sing this song! I also like Jingle Bells..LOL..it gives me a little giddy up in my step! :)

Christmas in Hollis

"It's Xmas time in Hollis queens! Mom's cookin chicken and collard greens!...."

The Chic Chauffeur said...

I LOVE Mary's Boy Child by the barenaked ladies! You did say what shakes your booty??? This song rocks! Download it now, if you don't already have it!


I loved this post. I see a few songs I am going to add to the rotation!

Lianne said...

Okay, I hope I'm not cheating by saying two songs, but I have two big-time, all-time favorites:

1. "We need a little Christmas"--definitely the Johnny Mathis version! I can't sit still when it comes on. I played it about 1,000 times when I was putting up all my Christmas decorations. I played it so much, it got on the nerves of the 8 and 5 year olds. THAT is an accomplishment--and PAYBACK! LOL!

2. "God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen" by Barenaked Ladies (hey Chic Chauffeur, thanks for reminding me how much I love BNL!) and Sarah McLachlan.--Who would've EVER thought you could dance to that song? I play it when making Christmas goodies.

p.s. I smell really good in Estee' Lauder fragrances. Just so you know. :)

Lianne said...

I am so following you now. Look behind you. See me waving? Hi! :D

I am loving your dancing girl with the snowman!

Aubrey said...

I love 'O Holy Night'. It is my all time fave Christmas song. But, not just anyone singing it. LOL Josh Grobin belts it out, lemme tell ya.

Erin said...

I love Rockin Around the Christmas Tree by Brenda Lee. Every time I watch Home Alone I want to start dancing. Please enter me in your giveaway. My mom LOVES Estee Lauder. Thanks!

White Christmas done by Bette Midler. That song just does it for me. Oh, and anything by Karen Carpenter.

Rachel Ann said...

Thanks for stopping by my blog and inviting my to your giveaway...I love giveaways!

I have no favorite carol....what I do love is Christmas Carols sung by Harry Connick Jr and Michael Buble...ahhh, especially when they sing "Let it Snow"....I wouldn't mind them coming over and letting me cuddle with them while it's snowing!! :)

Lori said...

"I want a hippopotomus for Christmas"
It's also my ringtone :)

Pamela said...

Pamela said...

Kimberly said...

Thanks for visiting me and inviting me over! And it is totally OK that you laughed, imagining me under my fallen tree! I did too, it didn't hurt, and it was seriously funny {I'm laughing now} :o)

Falalalala, I hate to pick one favorite, but I'll try.... "The twelve days of Christmas" is always FUN!!!

And this year I've had "Walking in a Winter Wonderland" stuck in my head everyday!!! I LOVE to sing that song!

Mrs. Langhans said...

Oh I love love Christmas music! I wish they had a year round Christmas music station, because I swear I would tune in! I have so many favorites I really can't say just one. I love "O Holy Night" and "Santa Baby" and "Winter Wonderland." Oh, I could go on and on. I would sure love to win this giveaway!

sandy said...

I love Silent Night! Mariah Carey does a nice version of this:)

Jill said...

Wow, 49 comments, that's cool!

It's hard for me to choose a favorite Christmas song because I love so many of them for various reasons, but I really love "A Christmas Lullaby" sung by Amy Grant. I love her Christmas albums (I have 3 of them) and this song gives me chills and is one I can listen to over and over and over again.

Rhonda said...

I'm Canadian, so unfortunately can't enter your contest. But it sounds awesome! Good luck with it.

And thanks for stopping by my blog! Come back again sometime....

I Wasn't Born a Soccer Mom said...

Hi! I found your blog through a blog, that led me to a blog....etc!

My favorite Christmas song is "All I Want For Christmas Is You" by Vince Vance and the Valiants. (not to be mistaken for Mariah Carey's song).

This one is "I don't neeeeed expensive things, they don't matterrrrr to-o mee-eee. All that I want can't be found. Underneath. The Christmas Treeeeeeee."
