Well like all of you , I have so many favourites and it can change time to time depending on mood and atmosphere...

An all time favourite is 1. Have yourself a Merry little Christmas. There are quite a few versions out there but my most recent pick is by Christina Aguilera and for an older version then Ella Fitzgerald.

2. The Christmas Song by Nat King Cole
3. Rockin Around the Christmas Tree by Brenda Lee
4. Sleigh Ride - The Ronettes
5. Merry Christmas All by The Salsoul Orchestra (was one of my father's favourites).

Harry Connick Jr's version of "O Holy Night". Has a very grand/epic sound to it, as it should when singing about the son of God.
