Chestnuts roasting on an open fire,

What she said!

By the way, have you ever heard (the soundtrack) or seen, "John Denver and the Muppets Christmas Special"? I loved the soundtrack forever.

I also like Amy Grant's original A Christmas Album, especially "Tennessee Christmas." I also like Ricky Skaggs and the Whites' A Skaggs Family Christmas album AND DVD. It is beautiful and brilliantly performed. I also like Vince Gill's Christmas album, especially "Let There Be Peace on Earth."

Also, I like Arthur Fiedler's version of Anderson's "Sleigh Ride" and "A Christmas Festival."

And a few more very special ones:
"Paper Angels" by Jimmy Wayne -- very meaningful tribute to the Angel Tree program, by a former recipient.
"Little Toy Trains" by Roger Miller -- yes the same Roger Miller who did Disney's Robin Hood soundtrack -- a beautiful, simple Christmas song that you will love if you try it.
"Pretty Paper" by Willie Nelson -- really makes you think.

Of course, the best of all is still "Silent Night," best done on a guitar, as it was originally done (when the organ famously was broken on that fateful Christmas Eve service).
