I am a fan of Ho Ho Ho and a Bottle of Rum by Jimmy Buffet!! Feliz Navidad is also a fave though too!

I LOVE LOVE LOVE Christmas music... probably because I love Christmastime. I can't wait to get home and enjoy it all. :)

I haven't heard all of these, so maybe i'll check some of them out. We do love Feliz Navidad and Oh Holy Night as well!! And Carol of the Bells is one of our faves as well... good by so many artists.

It's really corny but I like the Dolly Parton/Kenny Rogers 80s album "Home for Christmas." A great compilation album though is something called the "Ultimate Christmas Collection."
