My favorite is "Silent Night." My least favorite is "Jingle Bells" — it's annoying.

I like "All I Want for Christmas." Tatsuro Yamashita's "Silent Night" makes me think of lonely singles.

"Silent Night" is my favorite. My not-so-favorite is "Jingle Bell Rock."

"Silent Night" is beautiful and touching. "I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus" is just annoying.

"All I Want for Christmas" is an exciting song. Tatsuro Yamashita's "Silent Night" is boring.

"White Christmas" is my favorite, "Deck the Halls" the worst. Halls here are too small for it anyways.
