Favorite Secular Christmas Songs

Buzzfeed posted a list (with videos) of The 19 Best Secular Christmas Songs the other day. But, of course, as in all things, as soon as you say  (or write) the words "the best," there's bound to be disagreement. A few of those songs on the list are the very ones that make me want to turn off the radio. So, I'm adding two more of my own here.

"Sleigh Ride" (this is the instrumental version by John Williams and the Boston Pops)

And "We Need a Little Christmas" (this is the Johnny Mathis version, but I also like the Percy Faith version)

Here's another list of the 100 Greatest Christmas Songs. So, what songs are your favorites?

Without a doubt my favourite is OH HOLY NIGHT. Incredibly beautiful.

Mary, I still remember being in sixth grade (about 11 years old) and singing this (we had a boy in our class with a beautiful voice). Still gives me chills.

I'd forgotten this Johnny Mathis tune. I enjoyed both (though they took awhile to load first).

Elaine, I think the Internet was smoking (and slow) yesterday. Everything was taking a long time to load here, even sites that are usually fast. Not sure what that was about.
