One of my favorite radio stations, normally an 80's--90's station, has already started playing nothing but Christmas songs. That drives me crazy. However, when my alarm went off yesterday morning, the station began to play "Do You Hear What I Hear?" and I decided I actually like that song.

The singer was a woman. I don't know who she was, and, of course, the DJ didn't say--and that always drives me crazy, too.

(As for "The Little Drummer Boy"--let's not go there.  :laugh: )

Whitney Houston?  Carrie Underwood?  Long shot:  Karen Carpenter?

Once I learned she had recorded it (thank you, Wikipedia), my guess would be Carrie Underwood. I think I know the voices of the other two well enough that I'm pretty sure it wasn't them.

I've decided my least favorite is the rendition of "Jingle Bells" that ends with the driver cracking the whip and the horse neighing in alarm (or pain).
