A Christmas Game

Not much time for blogging lately, but I thought it would be fun to play a Christmas game. For the next few days, I'll post a Christmas question and you can leave your answer in the comments. I promise, it won't take much thought!

So, for today...

What's your favorite Christmas song?

I'll go first, okay? Except I'm suddenly realizing that it's way too hard to name just one.

~Favorite traditional carol - O Holy Night. When Josh Groban sang it years ago at the NYC tree lighting, I nearly fell to my knees right there in my living room.

~Favorite traditional carol, secular - White Christmas. Bing's is the only acceptable version, thankyouverymuch.

~Favorite "fun" song - Santa Baby by Eartha Kitt. I'm sorry, but whoever told Madonna that singing like Betty Boop was a good idea was just plain wrong. And an outerspace convertible?! (shaking my head...)

~Favorite contemporary song - Light of the World by Michael Tait & Point of Grace. It's from Point of Grace's CD Christmas Story. Love everything about that song, and about the CD itself. If you don't have it, get it. Consider that piece of advice as my Christmas gift to you.

~Then there's December by George Winston, which I can't categorize because it's really just beyond words.

So...what's your favorite? Leave a comment or write your own post & link back.

This year, and I say this year because like you I have more than one, my favorites are "O Holy Night" and "A Baby Changes Everything" by Faith Hill.

I hope you'll have time to hop over to my blog and read today's post. I've included a quote from Piper's Desiring God blog that brought you to my mind and prayers!

Mine is Silent Night. I posted this same question on FB a couple weeks ago and "O Holy Night" was the most popular.

Mine is O Come, O Come Emmanuel which has reduced me to tears multiple times this particular year.

As for "fun songs" - I'm right there with you with Bing Crosby's (and only Bing's) version of White Christmas!

I can't wait to play your Christmas games. ;)

For an all time favorite I would have to say mine is Do Hear What I Hear?"

For fun it would be Rudolph the Red-nosed Reindeer. By either Gene Autry or Berle Ives (much discussion here on whose is the original)

Can't wait for the next questions.

Christmas music for me includes O Holy Night, & Handel's Messiah. The silly song would be Nuttin' for Christmas!

I like Angels from the Realm of Glory. I also really like Mercy Me's version of Silent Night. Amy Grant's Breath of Heaven is also a favorite...
