I love Latin American/Mexican Christmas music. I especially love the recent tune I heard about sending the negativity in our lives packing to start the new year right.

When does very traditional become so old its now non-traditional? I enjoy an old recording from Williamsburg, VA of old hymns with harpsichord and bells. I was there for Christmas 1998 and there was a massive ice storm that knocked out electricity for days. Midnight mass had to be done w/out organ or lights - all candles, flashlights and harpsichord - just as it once was done - and the power of a church full of voices. That was the same year my mom, my sister, my aunt and my dog died and there was something healing about the group assembled in a sort of adversity (slick roads, no electricity, etc)- harpsichord musice brings back that Christmas.

Hoping to hear some Hawaiian Chirstmas for a world-sized aloha!

There could not be a better Christmas song than Schubert's Ave Maria. This song has been my favorite song since I first heard it many years ago.

My family is german and I love when my mom turns on the old tranditional German christmas carols. You'd be surprised how many of the songs we sing at Christmas stem from German songs!

Although their music has become a traditional standard over these past years, the Trans Siberian Orchestra started out very unique and exciting. I still like to listen several of the Christmas songs very loud during the holidays.

We shop at Whole Foods at least twice, if not three times a week...why? Because it is so healthy, so amazingly fresh and so INTERNATIONAL! I love shopping there because I can find the best the world has to offer in one stop! Thank you Whole Foods for keeping me and my family healthy and for sharring the best the world has to offer with all of us! This Holiday Season we will be offering only the best to our friends and family, this is why we will shop only at Whole Foods as we host our Holiday get-togethers and we would LOVE to have an International Holiday CD such as a World Christmas Party to be playing in the background. Happy Holidays to all :)

I like anything Irish, but my all-time favorite non-traditional song is "Mary's Boy Child," by Boney-M. I think the upbeat rhythm suits the holiday wonderfully. I'd love to win this set; our holiday party this year has an international Christmas theme - foods, decorations, and traditions from each of the 7 continents.(Antarctica's contribution will be ice-skating penguin figurines and Ice!) :-) It's been a blast doing the research!

Absolutely love Mariah Carey "O Holy Night". That song makes me want to get down on my knees.

I'm not sure if this is the exact title but I really enjoy John Lennon's holiday song, This is Christmas. It is a great song and makes me this about the passage of time; end of another year.

Bela Fleck and the Flecktones - Jingle All the Way This is an excellent untraditional take on many traditional Christmas songs!

My fav none traditional sounds are that of children "singing" at the school holiday festival. It's just so great to hear the excitement and pure joy in their voices.

I love the African Noel ... it makes my hips want to shake! :) It's not *exactly* traditional ... but I'm glad that enough choirs know it and perform it!

I really do enjoy simplistic, light Christmas music with minimalist instruments. Hearing the sole sounds and shapes of a talented voice really does allow for the season to sink in, clearly, warmly and soothingly. A passionate voice can go so far without traditional, elaborate composition.

I was born in Venezuela, and as much as I love the rhythmic beat of gaitas, I have fallen in love with the voice of Ella Fitzgerald singing Christmas music!
