Jingle bells.  I like what I call, the basics.

Re: Do you have a favorite carol?

[ Edited ]

I was just thinking about this yesterday - my favorite carols and favorite season songs.

 

Number one for me is Oh Holy Night. then Ave Maria, We Three Kings, It came upon a midnight clear.

 

General Christmas season song would be Silver Bells - I remember loving that song when I worked downtown in a large city and the department stores had amazing displays in their windows, played Christmas music, streets decorated and people hurrying around town - that is Silver Bells to me and great memories.

 

Actually I love all Carols/Hymns - love singing them (although not very well).  Not as fond of secular Chrlistmas music.  It is OK, but for me it is the timeless Carols

Re: Do you have a favorite carol?

I have a senior citizen choir, and we're performing 18 programs this month.

 

I'm fortunate because I can include many of my favorites in our choral selections, such as O Holy Night, Gesu Bambino, and Child of the Poor (which is often sung with What Child is This as a backdrop.)

 

I also especially love Bizet's March of the Kings, I Wonder as I Wander, and The Holly and the Ivy.

 

I love Christmas music, and never tire of it!

Re: Do you have a favorite carol?

So many!

Merry Christmas, Darling (Carpenters)

Snowing in the Pines(Alabama)

And the preacher said last Sunday it is Joseph and Mary's child (Alabama)

We also have an Irish Rovers Christmas album and I really like all of those carols

Christmas all over Again by Tom Petty and the Heart Breakers

As a child I would buy an album (vinyl) every year. Daddy would slip me a few dollars so I could get one when we went shopping usually at Sears

Almost anything by the Mormon Tabernacle Choir

Later for you
