My absolute favorite Christmas carol is Patapan.  I love it in any rendition, but the one by Mannheim Steamroller is on my road-trip playlist no matter what time of year I'm driving.

Never Heard of it. Checked it out. It's good. Listened to Steamroller, and Julie Andrews.

Thanks for the tip.

Hard to answer. Most of my list, I can't identify (recorded them off the radio). And the one I want to find, I can't. It was on a Disney's Christmas album I had in the late 70s. It was by Larry Gross (not Larry Groce who also did Disney songs, or Henry Gross who did Shannon). That album was the best Xmas album I ever had. But, Disney put out so many different ones, it'll never be found again. I just can't find it.

Me too. Bon Jovi did a cute cover version where at the end he wants a Tom Petty songbook! But nothing tops the original!
