I am an atheist, but, love the holiday and most of the songs. All kinds of holiday songs, one that i love, is some (not all versions) but most versions of "The Carol of The Bells". Lots of songs i love, "I'll Be Home for Christmas"
and so many others! I LOVE MUSIC! and i love the holiday!! a lot!!
HERE IS ONE OF MY 'NEWER' FAVORITE HOLIDAY SONGS, for past several years now,
this one is especially for atheists, skeptics, nonbelievers, non-traditionalists, ppl who celebrate "FESTIVUS FOR THE REST OF US" etc: (great lyrics, very sentimental, about how for some ppl, the holiday is about family)
(give it a minute, to get past his appearance, he really IS a very neat person)
edit, oh, one more song, i always play, while waiting for the family 'roamer' to arrive home, is Kenny Loggins "CELEBRATE ME HOME"...
but i like all the traditional old time songs, too, and love my James Brown christmas CD, too.
