I don't think this song has been mentioned yet.  In my opinion the best Christmas song ever.  The video is worth checkout if for no other reason than to see Shane McGowan's teeth.

Zoey is the sexiest white chick celebrity out there now. Talk about the girl next door. A great comedic actress, and a beautiful singer. The last 2 World Series she delivered the best renditions of the Star Spangled Banner I have ever hear. She sings it in her style, but remains true to the song, and refrains from "Mariah Carrying" it up.

A very good version of this John Lennon song, "Happy Xmas (War Is Over)". (You just have to get through the 30 second movie promotion first.)

I completely forgot one of other top faves: Sufjan Stevens Christmas. Particularly the Peace album. Gawd it's so damned beautiful sounding. Here are a couple of my faves from it:

Listened to this one while cruising past some cool lit up houses on Christmas Eve and burst out crying. That's not the best sell I suppose, but this song lives in the hopeful, delicate corners of my heart.
Sufjan Stevens - Sister Winter

This one is my 9yo's fave song off this album:
Jupiter Winter by Sufjan Stevens w/ Lyrics

THis is more fun and upbeat. It makes me happy.
Christmas In July (Sufjan Stevens)
Babe, let's get one thing clear, there's much more stardust when you're near.
