A conversation with my honey this morning made me realize that while I covered terrible holiday songs on here, I never talked about the good ones, the ones that you hope to hear every holiday season and find yourself singing along to every time you hear them.

So, what're your top five?

Here are mine, though there are so many good ones that this list is subject to change from moment to moment:

5. "I Want a Hippopotamus for Christmas" by Gayla Peevy: Such a cute song, and way more fun (and less annoying) than "All I Want for Christmas is My Two Front Teeth."
4. "Keep Christmas With You": I'm pretty sure I learned this one in school, with the sign language. I'll bet a lot of you did, too. You don't hear this one that often these days, but it's a nice warm-fuzzy sort of song.
3. "Wonderful Christmastime" by Paul McCartney: This song is just so damn peppy, so happy-sounding, I can't help but bob my head when it comes on. :)
2. "12 Days of Christmas" by Straight No Chaser: Though I really like a few other interpretations of this song, too, (like the "12 Pains of Christmas" or the McKenzie Brothers version), I think this one's my favorite.
1. "Ain't No Hole in the Washtub": Alright, "Jingle Bells" it's not. But don't you have one holiday special or movie that you have to watch every year, without fail, and it's just not the holidays without it? For me, that's always been "Emmet Otter's Jug-Band Christmas."
