The album is amazing. My favorite song is "Mary's Boy Child" by Little River Band.

Wow - lovely album! My fav non-religious Christmas song (for fun) is Santa Baby. It always makes me smile, and I always sing along (quite poorly).
I'm a traditionalist as far as religious songs go, so I have to say Oh Holy Night
