Ok, here's a question for everyone -- do you love or hate christmas music? What's your favorite song/album/christmas performance?

I love Christmas music -- from December 1st until Christmas day. I can tolerate it from day after Thanksgiving to December 1 but I think 25 days of it are enough, lol.

I usually download one new christmas album each year; this year I think I am going with Lindsey Sterling's album. Last year's was Seth McFarlane's Holiday for Swing and I loved it so much!

I generally do not listen to music unless I'm exercising. But Christmas Music sucks me in every single year. I swear I know every Christmas song/carol, even non-English ones. I'm fine with a Christmas station on the radio-- but I do have Mary J.Blige's chrsitams CD in my car. (It's been in there since last year lol).

I love anything by Pentatonix, but I especially love their Christmas version of 'Hallelujah '. You can check them out on Youtube.

I love the original, or old fashioned carols. I HATE modern covers of carols where they try to jazz it up. Just can't stand them one bit. Can listen to the original carols all day every day.

This is my favorite
