My List of the Best Christmas / Holiday Songs, with a Little Help from My Friends

What are your favorite Christmas / holiday songs?

I decided to make a list of my favorites this year, of both oldies and new-ies, but I didn't finish.

I thought I'd share what I put together so far, and ask you all what your favorite song or songs are...and also who sings it, or who you think has the best rendition of it. ðŸ˜‰

My List (not necessarily in any order):

Brian Setzer Orchestra- [Everybody's Waitin' For] The Man with the Bag

Bing Crosby & David Bowie - "The Little Drummer Boy (Peace on Earth)"
(“Bing passed away before this could air on television. Initial release is November 30, 1977.")
