I absolutely love my CDs "Reggae Christmas," "A Motown Christmas" and Tish Hinojosa's "From Texas on a Christmas Night." I love the Putumayo CDs I have, but none are for the holidays.

My most dear Christmas carole is Stille Nacht. I heard the Vienna Choir Boys sing it in Salt Lake City and it spoke to my heart. Seasons Greetings to all!

My favorite Christmas song from another part of the world is "Dormi Dormi O Bel Bambin,which translates to Sleep o Sleep my lovely child. My mother being married to an Italian would place a record player outside the window for all of Boston to hear. For years after my mother died passerby's would mention the song that they had heard for years prior,while they were passing the building. Happy Holiday's

For some reason, I love to listen to Apocolyptica's Hall of the Mountain King during the holiday season. I have the Charlie Brown soundtrack for the taditional stuff!

My favorite Christmas sound is the whack whack of sticks knocking down the pinata! It is especially fun to watch my 100 year old (yeah, 100) grandma attacking the pinata. Since we are all adults, the pinata gets stuffed with things like socks, gift cards, t-shirts, etc. instead of just candy. Watching my MOM push my sister aside for a pen was one of the funniest moments I can remember.

It's just not Christmas in our home without the following non-traditional songs: "Christmas Wrapping" by The Waitresses "Christmas Is The Time To Say 'I Love You'" by Billy Squire "Hey Santa" by The Brian Setzer Orchestra (actually, that entire album is great energetic Xmas fare) "Let It Snow" by Leon Redbone "Rudolf, The Red-Nosed Reindeer" by The Smithereens and finally "2000 Miles" by The Pretenders We also always have John Denver & the Muppets "A Christmas Together" playing while we're opening presents.

We have a blended family from different parts of the globe. A World Music Christmas treat would be fun!

My family and I love Putumayo music (and of course Whole Foods!). My favorite 'nontraditional' Christmas music..well, some of my children's character Christmas music, or a favorite folk singer's newest release could definitely qualify! ;)

My favorite non-traditional Christmas song is Natalie Merchant's "Children Go Where I Send Thee"- traditional song with a non-traditional twist.

Traditional (and non-traditional) sounds are different for everybody. I enjoy the sound of steel drum Christmas carols, having grown up in the Bahamas.

One year while visiting New Orleans I bought a CD titled "Christmas in in New Orleans, R&B, Jazz, & Gospel". I had never heard many of the songs before, and if I had the arrangements were completely new to me. It's still one of my favorites.

The most memorable non-English song I grew up listening to was: "O Tannenbaum" sung in German

The Roches "We Three Kings" has long been a family holiday favorite. Their version of "Winter Wonderland", Brooklyn accents and beautiful harmonies, is spectacular!

I once bought a Peruvian Christmas CD from some indigenous men in full ceremonial garb, playing their pan pipes in Harvard Square. The CD is full of traditional holiday music, played on pan pipes. My friends all think I'm crazy, but as an anthropology student, this CD is right up my alley!

Feliz Navidad is tonnes of fun... but "Old Toy Trains" always pops in my head when I sing to my kids.

Really care only for traditional carols and dont like them fancied up just simple. However, Carol of the Bells in any language is great listening.
