My Favorite for this Year

Favorite Christmas song, that is. Sara Groves' version is sweet and has that extra poignancy because she is a mother herself:

And there's this version, by the incomparable Nat King Cole (and no, I have no idea what the image on that video is. Just ignore it.):

If I shiver when I hear this, it isn't due to the sub-freezing temps. The only version that will never make it onto my Christmas play list is the Vince Gill one. No song is beautiful enough to withstand that kind of abuse.

Never heard this song ever before! But, I love it! I like her rendition much more than his! TFS!
