The Top Twelve Best Songs of Christmas

Aw, who can resist Golden Retriever puppies.
Merry Christmas everyone.

Now that we have the "Worst" list out of the way, let us turn to something more joyful, the Top Twelve Christmas songs for 2019. Once again, our guest list maker this year is my daughter Lelia

1)    Silent Night

2)   O Holy Night

3)   Little Drummer Boy

4)   Deck the Halls With Boughs of Holly

5)   Jingle Bells

6)   God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen

7)   Hark the Harald Angels Sing

8)   Carol of the Bells (instrumental)

9)   The Christmas Song (Chestnuts roasting on an open fire...)

Lelia left off numbers 10 through 12, so I will add three of my favorites, although they might have been rated higher on my list.

10)  White Christmas (Bing Crosby)

11)   Sleigh Ride (instrumental by Mozart)

12)  Joy to the World

The Christms Mantle at Schloss Seewald

Honorable mention songs:

*   Santa Claus is Coming to Town

*   We Wish You A Merry Christmas

*   There Is No Place Like Home for the Holidays (Perry Como)

*   Baby It's Cold Outside (yes, I know #metoo and all that, but I still like the song)

*   Christmas Comes to Harlem (Louis Armstrong)

*   Good King Wenceslas

*   The Twelve Days of Christmas

*   Here We Come A-wassailing (Here We Come A-caroling )

I send all of my blog readers my best wishes for a Merry Christmas* and a Happy New Year

* or Season's Greetings if you prefer


  1. Merry Christmas, Jim (or for the Dark Age gamers...Happy Yule Tide....or Saturnalia for the Ancient Roman players!) Your list of Xmas favourites pretty much matches ours. I hope you and the family have a great festive season. Cheers, Rohan.

  2. RE: Baby it's Cold Outside:

  3. If you and your daughter might permit, I'd also add The Holly and the Ivy (King's College Choir) and I Heard the Bells on Christmas Day (Sinatra).

    Merry Christmas,


  4. Merry Christmas and Peace to you. Try this one as well...

  5. The Seasons greetings to you and yours , Tony

  6. Best wishes for the festive season to you and your family Jim and a happy Hogmanay when it comes.
