What is your favorite Christmas song?

It's that time of year--the decorations come out, shoppers increase, and you hear Christmas music everywhere.

 

So...what's your favorite Christmas song?

I'm Gettin' nuttin' for Christmas

Shirley Temple 

 

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aUA7BPnog_0

 

 

I broke my bat on Johnny's head;
Somebody snitched on me.
I hid a frog in sister's bed;
Somebody snitched on me.

 

I spilled some ink on Mommy's rug;
I made Tommy eat a bug;
Bought some gum with a penny slug;
Somebody snitched on me.

 

Oh, I'm gettin' nuttin' for Christmas
Mommy and Daddy are mad.
I'm getting nuttin' for Christmas
'Cause I ain't been nuttin' but bad.

 

I put a tack on teacher's chair
Somebody snitched on me.
I tied a knot in Susie's hair

Somebody snitched on me.


I did a dance on Mommy's plants
Climbed a tree and tore my pants
Filled the sugar bowl with ants
Somebody snitched on me.

 

So, I'm gettin' nuttin' for Christmas
Mommy and Daddy are mad.
I'm gettin' nuttin' for Christmas
'Cause I ain't been nuttin' but bad.

 

I won't be seeing Santa Claus;
Somebody snitched on me.
He won't come visit me because
Somebody snitched on me.

 

Next year I'll be going straight;
Next year I'll be good, just wait
I'd start now, but it's too late;
Somebody snitched on me.

 

So you better be good whatever you do
'Cause if you're bad, I'm warning you,
You'll get nuttin' for Christmas.

The Christmas Shoes by NewSong. The story of the little boy trying to buy his dying Mother a new pair of shoes on Christmas Eve. He doesn't have enough money so the man in line behind him steps up and pays for them. It shows the true meaning of Christmas to me. Watch the video on YouTube, you'll be crying before it's over

MERRY CHRISTMAS ONE AND ALL!  
🎄🤶🏻🎁

My favorite is "Christmas ( Baby, Please Come Home )" by Darlene Love. Especially this year; my brother died in June, and now there is only my mother and I. Darlene Love (center), with her group The Blossoms.Darlene Love (center), with her group The Blossoms.

Snoopy's Christmas by the Royal Guardsmen

 

My husband passed last year. He wasn't a fan of most Christmas music but he loved this song. Everytime I hear it, I know he's still watching over us

My favorite Christmas song is I Heard the Bells on Christmas Day.

It talks about war and injustice but in the end peace will prevail.
