A friend of mine posted on Facebook the other day asking what song people thought was the most annoying Christmas/holiday song.  There were definitely some good responses although some people put down the song they find the most depressing around the holidays rather than the most annoying.  I had one very clear vote…

Christmas is 11 days away after all (holy crap, seriously!?)  So here goes… which song is your favorite Christmas song?  If you come from a religious tradition – is there a religious Christmas song you really like in addition to secular ones?  And which Christmas song makes you want to claw your eyes out?

My favorite religious Christmas songs:
  • O Come, O Come Emanuel (technically an Advent song… I know)
  • Oh Come All Ye Faithful (Celine Dion version)
  • Oh Little Town of Bethlehem (Amy Grant version)
  • O Holy Night (Jewel does a really good version as does the Cast of Glee)
  • Silent Night (there are numerous artists who do this song justice, and instrumental versions tend to be beautiful as well)
My favorite secular Christmas songs:
  • Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas (Christina Aguilera version – I wont be judged!)
  • Baby, It’s Cold Outside
  • Cold December Night
Most annoying Christmas song:
  • Grandma Got Run Over by a Reindeer
