Love the Vince Guaraldi Trio Christmas music. And Little Drummer Boy. And Carol of the Bells. We used to put up the Christmas tree to Disney Christmas songs when I was little. That was a lot of fun too :)

love the tune of "baby, it's cold outside" but the lyrics are way too date-rapey for me to really enjoy the song as a whole.

My favs:

pop: "all I want for christmas is you"

classic: white christmas

hymn: Oh Holy Night

O Holy Night - Best traditional Christmas song ever (even when sung by Eric Cartman).

Silent Night - Bad Religion (at the 1993 KROQ Almost Acoustic Christmas)

Little Drummer Boy/Peace on Earth - Bing and Bowie (one of my first MTV memories)

Christmas Wrapping - The Waitresses (and the phenomenal cover by Save Ferris...my Monique Powell crush rears its head again)

Christmas in Hollis - Run DMC (an important part of my early appreciation of hip hop)
