Your Favorite Christmas Caroles

Actual carols, or just Christmas songs in general? "God Rest Ye, Merry Gentlemen".

Songs sung around Christmas time: "Wassail".

Christmas parody songs? "Rusted Chevrolet", parody of "Jingle Bells":
"Rust and smoke, the heater's broke, the door just flew away,
I strike a match to see the dash and then I start to pray,
The frame is bent, the muffler went, the radio works okay,
Oh what fun it is to ride in a rusted Chevrolet"

I, uh, owned a Chevy that could have inspired that song...
 
WHich one goes "falllllllll on your knees...and hearrr the angel's callinggg"? That is my favourite Christmas carol.

In terms of popular Christmas songs, I am very fond of "Thank God it's Christmas" by Queen. In terms of Christmasy ballet, "The Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairies" has always been a favourite of mine.
 
I've always like Silver Bells. The words are just so cheerful.

City sidewalks, busy sidewalks
Dressed in holiday style.
In the air
There's a feeling
of Christmas.

Children laughing
People passing
Meeting smile after smile
And on ev'ry street corner you'll hear,

Silver bells, silver bells
It's Christmas time in the city.
Ring-a-ling, hear them sing.
Soon it will be Christmas day.

Strings of street lights
Even stop lights
Blink a bright red and green
As the shoppers rush
Home with their treasures.

Hear the snow crunch.
See the kids bunch.
This is Santa's big scene.
And above all this bustle
You'll hear,

Silver bells, silver bells
It's Christmas time in the city
Ring-a-ling, hear them sing
Soon it will be Christmas day.
 
I always liked Jingle Bells Rock. I just find it truly resonant of the spirit of Christmas.

Jingle bell, jingle bell, jingle bell rock
Jingle bells swing and jingle bells ring
Snowing and blowing up bushels of fun
Now the jingle hop has begun
Jingle bell, jingle bell, jingle bell rock
Jingle bells chime in jingle bell time
Dancing and prancing in Jingle Bell Square
In the frosty air.

What a bright time, it's the right time
To rock the night away
Jingle bell time is a swell time
To go gliding in a one-horse sleigh
Giddy-up jingle horse, pick up your feet
Jingle around the clock
Mix and a-mingle in the jingling feet
That's the jingle bell,
That's the jingle bell,
That's the jingle bell rock
