    Favorite Christmas Carol

    What is your favorite Christmas Carol from the above list? Clonedude's post got me curious.

    I'm mostly just curious about the old-school religious ones, but hopefully this doesn't have to go to the cave.

    Re: Favorite Christmas Carol

    I guess two of my favorites didn't make the list: Carol of the Bells and Hallelejuah Chorus

    The Hallelejuah Chorus is iffy just as a Christmas Carol. I LOVE it though. My church used to sing it every Easter.

    Carol of the Bells is pretty good to.

    Oh yeah, those are good ones. I kind of feel like they're in a slightly different category than these 10 though.

    Where you thinking of traditional caroling songs? Does anyone still go caroling?

    Yeah, that's a great way to put it. The only reason I didn't vote for O Holy Night is cause I can't sing it worth a crap.

    I had to come to terms with the whole "birth, baby, born" words the first weekend radios were playing them. That was worse.

    ha, and that's the reason I ended up voting for it - it's my favorite one to sing. I like all of them though, and love a few - Carol of the Bells, Hark the Herald Angels Sing, Come All Ye Faithful, Angels We Have Heard on High.........Celtic Women do a great job with most of these :)

    Have you heard the Eric Cartman version? I think it is pretty funny.
