My favorite non-traditional Christmas song has to be Feliz Navidad. I remember my grandma on the Mexican side of our family singing it in the kitchen whilst she prepared Christmas dinner when I was a little girl growing up. I miss her but will always remember he singing it.

It's actually virtually a non-sound: the hush of a lightly falling snow, not the howling of a major storm but the gentle tension release of quietness in the world.

Any music played on steel drums is a special treat at Christmas time because it reminds us there is someplace warm and sunny in the world!

I recently heard Colbie Caillat's "Mistleto" and it has made my holiday favorites list! Makes me want to cozy up to a warm fire with my family.

My husband and I love to scour the record shops for old holiday vinyl. Our favorite find features reggae, African, and island takes on traditional Christmas songs.

I just love jazzier or latin style Christmas music and get tired of the traditional music year after year. The more non-traditional and different, the more wonderful it is! I sometimes will play my own creative versions of some of the traditional Christmas tunes on a little hand-carved wood flute that I have!

What a cool question. Thanks to all who posted songs, artists and links, I can't wait to check them out. Our favorite nontraditional holiday music is Native American Flute music. The Songs of Winter album by Jeff Ball is a lovely blend of traditional American Indian Flute and holiday favorites.

I love the new age arrangements of winter songs by Enya, they transform me into a peaceful state of being, especially after a hectic day.

I moved here 3 years ago from Germany, so all German Christmas songs are my real favorites because they bring back all the childhood memories of celebrating christmas with my parents, grandparents and brother.

Chanukah songs! How non-traditional is that? =) But I still like listening to Christmas music, it puts me in a good mood for the holiday season.

My favorite is "O Tannenbaum" sung in German. It reminds me of my childhood.

I LOVE James Brown's collection of Christmas music! God bless the hardest working man in show business (belatedly, of course).

I love both world and Christmas music, so it is really great to find new combinations of the two! One of my favorites off the top of my head is steel drum Christmas music! It reminds me of the year I spent Christmas in Hawaii, my first time visiting that state. The novelty tune "Mele kalikimaka" has since held a special, sentimental value to me. I also enjoy the "Christmas in Bossa" collection I found a couple years ago--- various American Christmas songs (including Wham's "Last Christmas") done in Bossa Nova style. Wonderful for a holiday cocktail party, or whwen you just want a nice, relaxing change of pace from the pop music on the radio :)
