I really like Baby It's Cold Outside.

I've been playing Holiday favourites on my Echo Dot these last few days.

I love all of the songs from the Christmas cartoons like Frosty The Snowman.

I've always liked trans siberian orchestra, and I'm slightly sad because they always toured through my town for multiple days. So many years of band and choir as a kid means all the classics make me smile, but I've never been keen on the lyrics of Baby it's cold outside. I love the music, but the words make me cringe!

Absolutely love trans Siberian orchestra. It’s one of my bucket list goals to see them.

Definitely worth it! They'd have a number of shows through the Buffalo and Toronto area every year, so it was pretty easy to get tickets for one of them.

I generally can't stand Christmas music (my sister has called me a grinch on more than one occasion), so it will come as no surprise that my two "favorite" "Christmas" songs are:
Don't Shoot Me Santa - The Killers
Christmas at Ground Zero - "Weird Al" Yankovic

The Weird Al one especially as it reminds me of many evenings listening to Dr Demento with my mom  :)

My father was a mariachi so my Christmases always included Jose Feliciano’s “¡Feliz Navidad!” and I love it still.

I’m always impartial to “Good King Wenceslas” and “Carol of the Bells”. My sister and I used to decorate the tree to “Holly Jolly Christmas” and I do feel quite nostalgic whenever I hear it.

My husband doesn’t think it’s Christmas without Slade, Wizzard and a touch of Cliff It could be worse, he could love that horrible Pogues song...
