I love christmas music but I prefer the Trans-Siberian Orchestra version of any christmas song if there is one.

King Diamond's No Presents For Christmas is pretty fun too.

And Charlotte Church's version of Oh Holy Night is one of the most moving things I've ever heard.

Please tell me that is not an actual song :unsure:

yes, yes it is. And I find it quite hillarious, and the synth programming in it is badass. I mostly, just find it extremely funny.

As far as most Christmas songs go I don't enjoy that many, I've heard them all too much. I like the Jethro Tull Xmas album, some BB King xmas tunes I've heard, and some of ole blue eyes.
