The Never Ending Christmas Project

From Steve Tarter's column in the PJ Star.

Holiday favorites

You may recall us asking folks for their favorite holiday tunes in this column last month. Here's what Edison Media Research came up with. The company recently tested women between the ages of 30 and 49 to find out their most- and least-loved songs. Here they are:

Top holiday songs
1. "The Christmas Song" - Nat King Cole.
2. "Holly Jolly Christmas" - Burl Ives.
3. "O Holy Night" - Celine Dion.
4. "Jingle Bell Rock" - Bobby Helms.
5. "Happy Xmas (War is Over) - John Lennon

I set out to put together a CD of the best versions of the best Christmas songs. That was two years ago, but this is truly one of the few projects that has ever gotten away from me. If anyone wants to share their two cents, please do so. There's always next Christmas, right?

Ya gotta have "Blue Christmas" by Elvis.

And Cartman's "O Holy Night" in the *least* favorite? Come on... maybe a little disrespectful, but still...
