If it doesn't snow on Christmas

This song is my Christmas Happy Shiny. It's an old 1949 recording of Gene Autry's song "If it Doesn't Snow on Christmas". It reminds me of my granny and the warm and loving house that we grew up in. It reminds me of the smell of the fire place in the front room and that metallic cheesy garland that was everywhere. It also makes me remember the feeling of that brown carpet that she was so proud of against my cheek when taking a nap in the sun spot when I was teeny. On this same album is Gene Autry's 1949 recording of "Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer". It had a skip at a certain point on the record.. and still to this day I still listen for it and am almost sad when it's not there in every recording.

Tell me, what is YOUR favorite Christmas song? Post a YouTube link if you can find one. :)
