TheMovieSmith,

For your consideration:
Silent Night (German: Stille Nacht, heilige Nacht) by Bing Crosby
https://www.imdb.com/name/nm0001078/mediaviewer/rm1448972032
composed in 1818 by Franz Xaver Gruber
https://www.discogs.com/Bing-Crosby-White-Christmas-Silent-Night/release/9518936
https://www.amazon.com/White-Christmas-Bing-Crosby/dp/B000002QWD

I prefer the original German language version with guitar accompaniment. I like the simplicity of the lyrics and melody, and that most people can sing this song.

Your choice, is one of my all time favorites:
"The Christmas Song (Chestnuts Roasting On An Open Fire)" by Nat "King" Cole

The Little drummer boy. But it was a you tube video. I'll see if I can find an image.

"Silent Night" is so beautiful. Along with "Little Drummer Boy," it's my favorite. Sinead O'Connor does a hauntingly lovely performance of it.

Is the image on the main page suitable or do you have another picture in mind?

Slade - Merry Xmas Everybody.

The gallery has good images of the band, maybe this one is the best but choose what you like :) -

(By the way, as a little kid I was crazy about a Christmas song whose lyrics don't make much sense in any language - Eine Muh, eine Mäh)

Something went wrong in the linking process, when I was editing the text the first link went to second video, now it's the other way round.

I had this version in my mind for the strange German song: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SewPFvBMbZ4
