My Favorite Christmas Song(s)
This one is fairly easy for me. I am a huge Elvis fan and his version of "Blue Christmas" is near the top of my list. I love it and I love how he delivered it. It is not my favorite, but one I always want to hear on Christmas Day.
Just clickity clickity and Go hear to see and hear him...
Topping my must hear list is "Holy Night" and I like several different covers of this one. The one I usually choose is Neil Diamond's version. I love his voice and I love the true feeling in his singing of a song most Jewish children didn't learn at their holiday services. :) It makes me smile to know that he can make me believe he believes every word he is singing.

Elvis also does a song that I enjoy all year long...it's called "Mama Liked the Roses" and I nearly cry every single time I hear it. Most aren't familiar with this one since it was never a big hit, but it is beautiful. Knowing how much he adored his mother makes it even more heart warming to me and the fact that I adore my Momma might have something to do with it as well.
Grab a kleenex and listen to this one...click click
I put the 5 disc player on early in the day on Christmas and these three along with about 150 more songs will play throughout the day. Softly singing behind all the noise or being the center of a quiet moment, I can't get enough Christmas music. I will occasionally just play one cd out of the blue during the year, just to remember the Christmas feeling. It'll probably be a selection from Elvis does Christmas! He always makes me happy.
One more from Andy Williams....
And with that I wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a New Year filled with peace~joy~love. 2012 holds great promise.
