What's Your Favorite Christmas Song?

Christmas tunes are on the airwaves: tell us which songs get you into the holiday spirit.

Whether you love it (like I do), hate it (like Scrooge pre-transformation) or merely accept it as an unavoidable component of the holiday season, we at Patch want to hear your thoughts on Christmas music.

What's on your Christmas playlist? Does Wham's, "Last Christmas," make you break out in song and dance? Do you serenade your special someone with Mariah Carey's, "All I Want for Christmas is You?" Does The Pretenders', "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas" get you into the holiday spirit?

Artists have been releasing Christmas albums in recent months: Blake Shelton's Cheers, It's Christmas, has been on my iPod this week.

Last year, we offered readers a poll to weigh in on their favorite songs, and no one tune was the clear winner. This year, we're simply asking:

What's your favorite Christmas song? Tell us in the comments.

I'm not the biggest Christmas song enthusiast, but I've always been a fan of Darlene Love's "Christmas (Baby Please Come Home)." That whole Phil Spector Christmas album is pretty awesome, actually.

none, I'm Jewish and I get sick of all of them by Thanksgiving.

I like R&B Christmas songs such as "Boot-off" by Bootsy Collins. There are many others but I can't think of the names. The songs are funky, good to dance to and I believe can be a lot of fun for people.

Hands Down my favorite is Christmas in Sarajevo - Trans Siberian Orchestra

I like "Dominic the Italian Christmas Donkey" and "Grandma Got Run Over by a Reindeer" - and of course Run DMC's "Christmastime in Hollis, Queens." I'm sorry if the titles are not all exact.

I generally don't love Christmas songs, most likely due to my past retail career, but I will forever have a soft spot for "O Night Divine", it's my Mom's favorite, it gets me every time.
