  1. Definitely White Christmas by the Drifters. The unison of the guys voices and the melody kind of get me choked up! It's the classic song with a twist. For whatever reason, it reminds me of being a child riding through snowy PA. At the end where they sing "jingle bells jingle bells jingle all the way ooo" I always get chills. It's probably just random for me, but it's my favorite. Great giveaway!

  2. Ooohhh...which song? Depends on which mood I'm in. Last night was Celine Dion's "Ave Maria". My parents were married in December and this is the song they played at their wedding.

    Nice to meet you and thanks for the chance to win such cute little pillows!

    Merry Christmas! and God bless your family and thank you for your sacrifices and service!

  3. O Holy Night sung by any church choir. I'm a church girl and there's nothing like hearing a choir sing at church to get me in the mood.

    Also, I have flashbacks of my own stint in the childrens' church choir singing Noel Noel and having the Christmas play with a cabbage patch baby Jesus or something like that. I LOVE Christmas.

  26. I get a huge smile on my face when I hear the theme song to National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation!

    ReplyDelete
  27. Love those little hangers... thanks! Let's see, my favorite sound might be (but, I do have commitment issues, so it might change tomorrow) is the sound of a crackling fire... here's why. Many reasons really. First, I hate to be cold, so that sounds means there is a warm place somewhere... and somewhere cool as in awesome because I'm not a huge fan of gas logs... where is the fun in turning a light switch anyway... I do have gas logs, but I long for real fire. Also, it means it's too cold to go anywhere and I'm a homebody (shh... don't tell anyone.) Oh, I also like the song "Baby it's cold outside"

  28. very cute! We love Jingle Bells, and often sing it many times during the holiday season.

  37. Holiday music is the best! I start listening to it in November in my car on my long drive home. Anything I can sing along with is great, like the Love Actually Soundtrack. Another favorite album is The Hotel Cafe presents Holiday Songs.

    ReplyDelete
  38. My favorite is still The Christmas Song sung by Nat King Cole...Mmm makes me want a cup of hot chocolate and a warm fuzzy blanket.

    ReplyDelete
  39. I love hearing anything instrumental during the holiday season. This year it is Yo-Yo Ma & Friends Songs of Joy & Peace. Any recording that includes James Taylor, Dave & Matt Brubeck and the Silk Road Ensemble with Yo-Yo Ma on the cello is wonderfully soothing for my soul.

    Your door hangers are beautiful.

  63. Oh, these would make a perfect gift for someone on my list, but if I won them I don't know if I'd be able to part with them! "It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year" is my favorite Christmas song. It gets stuck in my head and I hum along because I can't sing it nearly as well as Dean Martin. Merry Christmas!

  79. Which song? Impossible :) I love hearing my ring tone, because it probably means my across-the-country twin is calling me. I love hearing my 4 year old belt out mash-ups of holiday tunes. I love hearing my 1 year old banging on the piano while yelling "BA! BA! BA!" Such a good time of year for music :)

  88. I can't pick just one! I love so much Christmas music, but right now I am loving to hear my 3 year old belt out "Up on the Housetop" as loud as he can since that's how they practiced at school for their program...so right now--I'd have to say his version is my favorite!
