Advent Calendar : Christmas Music

What songs did your family listen to during Christmas? Did you ever go
caroling? Did you have a favorite song?

Growing up, we listened to all sorts of Christmas music, both secular and sacred.  I remember going caroling only with our church group, unless you count the times when we would visit my great-uncle & aunt, Clarence & Vera (Haley) Stuber, at their home and later in the nursing home.  We were pretty young then, and I can remember singing Christmas and other songs for them.

As a kid, my favorite was probably "Rudolph, the Red Nosed Reindeer".  Now, I would have to say that one of my favorites was "Mary, Did You Know?".

Mom had a different favorite song:
When I was growing up, my brother and I were in the band so we were surround by music especially music at Christmas.   Mother always had music playing in the house. 
We would go caroling with the church and back for fellowship.   I usually starting playing music right after Thanksgiving.   "Silent Night" is probably one of my favorties.   It always makes me cry.
