“Pop Christmassy songs” gets on my freaking nerves. I can’t stand that crap.

I have heard the same 6 traditional Christmas carols twice every day on my commute, so I am actually in the mood for some poppy Christmas songs. My favorites are ones that talk about the holidays without explicitly mentioning Christmas in the title, like Ingrid Michaelson’s new song “Snowfall”.

I like old and new but nothing gets my head noddin’ or my feet tappin’ more than when I hear this song for the first time every Christmas.
Every time for the past 28 years since Lennon died.

I’d have to go with the traditional.

I am Christian, and I love Christmas songs, but the season is never full unless I listen to the South Park Christmas album. Completely wrong, and utterly filthy, I still love it.

traditional, but i only really appreciate them right around christmas, not weeks or days before.

I love the old-fashioned Christmas carols. They keep the Reason For The Season in mind. But if I keep listening to the same few carols for the whole month of December, I will go nuts. So I try to find some good pop type Christmas songs to mix in.

I like to listen to them both but if I were actually going to sing along I would have to choose traditional because I don’t know all the words to the new songs.

I’ve always liked traditional christmas songs remixed to sound like new songs. Carol of the Bells on electric guitar? Audio Nirvana.
