Great list! I LOVE Mary Did You Know.

Happy TT!

Jane said...

Great list. "Mary Did You Know" is my absolute favorite. I am partial to several others on your list.
Thanks for coming by my T13. I hope you have a blessed Christmas.

Interesting selection. It's odd to think that White Christmas, which was phenomenally successful, was written by an atheist who despised Christmas (his son had died on 25 December).

Love your list, and the video was great. What a magical time of year. Have a great TT. :)

Melissa said...

I love the version of Jingle Bell Rock by Hall & Oates...the video always cracks me UP!

Thanks for visiting!

Hi Diana, Thanks for visiting my post. I like your carols too. We do have several in common and the rest would have ended up on mine if it was Thursday 26!! ;-)

I think I worked retail waaaayy too long. I just can't stand Christmas music. Alas...

Happy TT!

"Jingle Bell Rock" I'd almost forgotten about that oldie, but goodie. Thanks for the reminder.

Lori said...

Yep, you got me singing with those songs:) Happy TT and thanks for stopping by.

It's nice that there are so many versions of the classics. Now I have to go check out Mary did you Know.

Have you heard the new Josh Groban Cd? It's nice to have on during work.
Happy Holidays!

I love Carol of the Bells and O Holy Night. There is an awful Destiny's Child version of CotB on YouTube.

Seasonal and festive.

Check out my superstitious edition.

Happy TT!
