my Five Favourite Christmas songs are (if I manage to restrain myself to five):
1. God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen - screw feminism, I love the tune.
2. Mary's Boy Child
3. A Pukeko in a Punga Tree - yay for New Zealand!
4. O Holy Night
5. Ding Dong Merrily on High
Honourable mentions go to: Little Drummer Boy, Hark the Herald Angels Sing, Te Harinui, Good King Wenceslas, The First Noel, and the Cradle carol (the really old obscure one that goes 'lullay lully thou little tiny child'). If I were to choose a modern carol I like... can't remember the name but it's set in New York and sung by Irish people!! I'm sure there's some more I've forgotten.
