My Favourite Christmas Song: O Holy Night

I've just read a post by the lovely Linda over on You've Got Your Hands Full about her favourite Christmas song which is The Little Boy That Santa Claus Forget sung by Nat King Cole.  I also love that song, and one of my favourite Christmas CDs ever is his Merry Christmas CD.  It's a great selection of songs by a fantastic singer and during the Christmas holiday it gets played constantly in our house.  It's particularly popular with The Teenager funnily enough, although I prefer James Taylor's Christmas album.

But this is probably my favourite Christmas song and, as sung by the honey voiced Cole, it 's got to be the best version I've ever heard.  Enjoy.

My favourite is God Rest Ye Merry Gentelmen - it was the first carol learned to play on the piano!

This is my favorite, too! This carol has always been my favorite, and NKC's version is gorgeous. Thank you for sharing it with us, and have a lovely, restful day with your girls and any other loved ones. xo
