    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.

    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. :yes: :smile:

    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 :)

    I picked it, but if how well you can sing it was a criteria, can I revote?

    I loved doing the Christmas concert in Stephen's and hearing the audience sing all the carols in between choirs. Lot of bang for your buck instead of hoping Christmas church service will pick all the ones you like. Because they never do, they always slip It Came Upon a Midnight Clear or something else in there.

    I really like Mercy Me's version of Little Drummer Boy (I tend to be a traditionalist for Christmas songs)

    I really was kind of surprised to see Angels we have Heard On High on the list. I voted for that one. Brings back memories of my younger brother after church singing the words, "Gloooooooooooooria, In excelsius Day Old Bread."

    If you get tire of listening to carols try the Nutcracker Suite. It seems Christmasy
