The Question of the Week is posted every Sunday and will consist of a question followed by my answer and explanation to the same. Some questions will only require a simple answer that could potentially be followed by an explanation. Many questions will be writer oriented, but not all. Everyone is encouraged to answer in the comments and discussions/follow up questions are more than welcome!
What’s your favorite Christmas/Holiday song?
It’s only fair to have a favorite question after I have a most hated one, and last week’s question caused some pretty awesome conversations. “Christmas Shoes” is either universally hated or unknown…the way it should be.
My favorite song is contingent on a number of factors, but it mostly comes down to how it’s performed. I tend to drift towards darker sounding music (especially the minor key), nor do I shy from this position around the holidays.
When I was younger, my favorite song was “We Three Kings,” and while I still love that melody, Pentatonix’s “Mary, Did You Know” is currently in first place.
Just for a bonus, if you want to hear a Christmas song so over the top, disgustingly cheery, you’ll want to vomit candy canes, look no further than the below.
What’s your favorite holiday song? Has it changed over the years or remained the same?
I look forward to your answers in the comments!
