As always, Sufjan gives me something fun! Thanks for the video post.

My Christmas faves: those songs that remind me of Home Alone and the Addam's Family; Jewel's yodeling Christmas songs; Snowed In ( you know that's Hanson); gotta have some oldies: Elvis, Ella Fitzgerald, Louis Armstrong, and Bing Crosby; and of course Sufjan and Relient K Christmas CDs get dusted off and popped in the car stereo every now and then too. Don't hate.
