Top 7 Favorite Christmas Songs

my-presence-is-your-presentYesterday, snow fell lightly all day, making it possible to slide on the sidewalks in a sort of cross-country skiing way.  Across the street, lights illuminate a Christmas tree in the window.  It’s 16 days before from Christmas.  Some radio stations have switched over to playing all Christmas music, so I turned the dial from the usual classical music to get in on the spirit.  Most of the songs are good and almost all of them I know; some versions are better than others, but the crooners are hard to beat.  Here are the Christmas songs I want to hear:

  1. Let it Snow
  2. The Christmas Song (Chestnuts Roasting on an Open Fire)
  3. Most Wonderful Time of the Year
  4. White Christmas
  5. It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas
  6. Walking in a Winter Wonderland
  7. Sleigh Ride

What are your favorites? Do you know which of these songs don’t even mention Christmas?
