Advent Calender - Day 15

Today I'm sharing "Happy Christmas" performed by Lifehouse. As many of you know, I love Lifehouse. Something about their music sounds like my characters to me (although it's really hard to explain what I mean by that)


. Anyway, Lifehouse doesn't have a holiday album, so our options were somewhat limited. Still...you can never go wrong with John Lennon. (At least...I've always thought John Lennon wrote this?)


Do you have a favorite holiday song?

  2. Thank you for sharing. I've never heard Lifehouse before, but I like them.

    My favorite holiday song is Do You Hear What I Hear. Not sure why it's my favorite, but I've loved it since my 6th grade Christmas chorus concert.

  6. Thanks, Josh. This is lovely. It seems you are asking whether John Lennon wrote this song; he did in 1971 with Yoko. I have many favorites, some I don't know the name of, unfortunately, but I too love Santa Baby.

  7. Oh, I have way too many favorites! When I was growing up we had one Christmas record that we continually played. It was a compilation album with carols by everybody from Peggy Lee to Bobby Darrin to Leontyne Price. All the classics.

  9. One of my favorites is "Angels We Have Heard on High." When I was in Elementary School, we used to attend a Christmas music program at the local university and the university choir would always enter the auditorium carrying lighted candles, singing that song. It always gave me the chills.

  12. I love Greensleeves as well.

    My favorite though, is "Oh Holy night."...and don't mock me for saying this, but one of my favorite renditions is by N'SYNC. The five-part harmony that they do is just wonderful. They singing acapella, which is even more impressive. Don't mock it until you've heard it. Lol.

  14. Love Santa Baby, love I Believe in Father Christmas (Emerson, Lake, & Palmer), and I love Steven Page/the Barenaked Ladies' Hanukkah Blessings. Kind of an eclectic holiday set, yes?

  16. Seems like they cheered up the lyrics a bit from the John Lennon version (The war is over, and a new one just begun...)

    And so this is Christmas, and a Happy New Year.
