    Not sure I have a favorite, but I LOVE the Christmas instrumentals that August Burns Red put out each year:

    Re: Favorite Christmas Song?

    Some of my favorite Christmas songs are from the 1960's Andy Williams albums. Andy has my favorite version of "Sleigh Ride".

    First a 1960's version. The guy in the front seat with Andy is priceless. He doesn't quite have the lip syncing thing down. The version of "Most Wonderful Time of the Year" that follows is fun too.

    Second is a version from Rosa Cam (drummer Rosa Avila) at an Andy Williams Christmas show a couple of years ago. I love watching professional instrumental musicians work their craft.

    Clicking "480p" in the lower right of the viewer control will get better quality.

    Andy was diagnosed with bladder cancer earlier this fall.

    I've always liked Mavis Staples doing the Christmas Vacation theme song.

    Conway Twittys "A Twismas Story" album. Have listened to it since I was a kid and still one of my favorite Christmas traditions.

    Re: Favorite Christmas Song?

    One of my favorites has to be Nat King Coles's Christmas Song. I am a pretty big fan of Trans-Siberian Orchestra and Mannheim Steamroller as well.

    That is the best Christmas song there is, period.
