Just What is Your Favorite Christmas Carol?

The Telegraph in the UK has a little contest going for its readers. These are the choices of one of its writers. Some of them I've never heard of.

Once in Royal David’s City
Hark! the Herald Angels
O Come, all ye Faithful
Coventry Carol

In the Bleak Midwinter
Away in a Manger
Ding Dong! Merrily on High

Angels, from the Realms of Glory
The 12 Days of Christmas
God Rest you Merry, Gentlemen
Good Christian Men, Rejoice
Good King Wenceslas
While Shepherds Watched
O Little Town of Bethlehem
Silent Night
The First Nowell
It Came upon the Midnight Clear
The Holly and the Ivy
We Three Kings
I Saw Three Ships

Check out the Telegraph where you can learn a little bit about them and hear and judge them for yourself. A good selection.

What are your favorite Carols?
