77 Santas Top Twenty-Seven Christmas Songs—2007

It’s been a fantastic season with 77 Santas and it’s time to close out the season with the list of my favorite songs this year. Last year, I did fifteen songs—I’m upping it by twelve this time around. I’ve written about many of these already. And I could write a blurb for every song but suffice it to say that they are all personal to me and many are rooted in my childhood memories. It’s been a blast and I can’t wait to do it all over again next Christmas. And no more Yule Goat! Be gone, Yule Goat!

Have a safe, happy, and fun holiday.
