12 days of christmas

okay... let me just say that "The 12 Days of Christmas" is my absolute least favorite christmas carol in the world (even worse than "The Little Drummer Boy.") But I LOVED this one!!! (thanks, Linda)



What's *your* least favorite Christmas song? And your favorite?

UGH, my LEAST FAVORITE song is that "Christmas Shoes" one. why would anybody even WRITE that song?!?!? i'm too tired to rant about it now, but i cannot stand it. CANNOT STAND IT.
and my favorite...
too many. :) i guess it depends on my mood.
maybe "The Little Drummer Boy"...especially the Harry Simeone Choir version...WOW. i don't want to move when i hear them sing it.
and Rich Mullins has this one..."You Gotta Get Up" that is way sweet and makes me teary-eyed...but maybe that's just 'cause i miss his music so much.
Johnny Mathis' version of "O Holy Night" always moves me.
and The Barenaked Ladies and Sarah McLachlin (or however you spell her name) did an awesome version of "God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen".
i don't know...as soon as i send this i'll think of another one i really like and be like, "oh, man, why didn't i say THAT one?!?!?!".
see, i told you...i'm a nut. but you probably already knew that.

oh, & i have to agree with you about the christmas shoes one. yuck! there's another one like that, about a bird, & some girl who's dying, or something. i haven't heard it on the radio this year. maybe lots of people complained.:)

Not that I ever watched Friends, but it reminds me of Ross and Monica's competition to get the relatives to cry at the wedding toast...like somewhere in some office the writer's going..."oh yeah, this one's gonna make em cry! hahahaha!" I agree w/ you Kari - on drummer boy and the shoes song!
