    Overall favorite is tied between This Christmas Eve and Old City Bar by TSO.

    A regional one from the Pacific NW is Christmas in the Northwest. Always love that song.

    All I want for Christmas is a real good tan----Kenny Chesney
    Straw Against the Chill, All Because of Him, Nothing but a Child--Kathy Mattea
    A Soldiers King and I've been Looking for Christmas ---Donny Osmond.

    I love Dominic the Chirstmas Donkey!

    I also love Hurry Home for Christmas as performed by Robert Goulet. I can just picture him in a smoking jacket, with a whiskey in his hand, by a fireplace, belting this one out.

    And because my sister played it about 100 times every year when we were kids, I have an odd affection for Funky, Funky Christmas by NKOTB.

    This is my new favorite Christmas song....just love it. First heard it a year or two ago and just can't get it out of my head!!! Not a fan of the video but love the song...

    Also love all of Harry Conick's Christmas songs....listen to that while decorating the tree and sipping on eggnog.

    And being from New York this one makes me cry every time....especially after Hurricane Sandy. Rob Thomas "A New York City Christmas"

    Also love the Eagles "Please Come Home for Christmas".

    I'm surprised nobody mentioned the Snow Miser song.

    "I Celebrate the Day" and "In Like a Lion (Always Winter)" by Relient k (really, that entire album...).

    "Rudolph Got Run Over by My Grandma" by Bill Griffin. Not to be confused with "Grandma Got Run Over by a Reindeer"

    Reminds me of working at Gap in the 90's. Which was great!
