Christmas Tunes

What is your favorite Chrismtas song and who sings it?

I'm looking to add some variety to my Christmas music collection - figured what better place to ask than the Airstream forum to get a diverse group of opinion.

Thanks and hope everyone is enjoying the holiday season!

Almost anything by the Trans-Siberian orchestra, most chorus-sung Christmas tunes, anything instrumental. It makes great background music for the season.

Meddle not in the affairs of dragons, for you are crunchy, and taste good with ketchup.

You know I will have to say TSO's "Wizards in Winter". But I am biased:

Sorry I didn't mean for that to link back to any particular online seller - I intended to just cut/paste the list of songs for you.

Plenty of favorites but there are three that are a must play every year.
Stan Freberg : A Green Christmas
Vince Guaraldi: A Charlie Brown Christmas Soundtrack.
And, call me an old sentimental softy,
South Park’s Mr. Hankie’s Christmas Classics: Merry F***ing Christmas.

Happy Holidays to all,

A local Ann Arbor Michigan musician Timothy Monger has a Christmas Airstream song that is as nostalgic as it is cool, about rememberences of an Airstream at a Christmas tree lot. Wish a special Airstreaming friend a Merry Christmas.

And a favorite artist of mine Paige Bridges and her prints available for purchase.
