Default favorite christmas songs (& Hanukka, Kwanza, Yule, Solstice, etc, songs)

title pretty much says it all.

for me, my personal fave is greg lakes "I believe in father Christmas", mainly due the opening two lines:

They said they'd be snow at Christmas, they said they'd be peace on earth,
But instead it just kept on raining, a veil of tears for the Virgin Birth

a close second is the Annie Lennox version of the classic hymn "god rest ye merry gentlemen", which takes it back a bit, and reminds us of the earlier Christmas traditions (and how much those old traditions borrowed form the pagan past)

I invite the forum member to share their own favorites, if they wish.
Then it's Tommy this, an' Tommy that, an` Tommy, 'ow's yer soul? "
But it's " Thin red line of 'eroes " when the drums begin to roll
The drums begin to roll, my boys, the drums begin to roll,
O it's " Thin red line of 'eroes, " when the drums begin to roll.

"Tommy", Rudyard Kipling
