What is your favorite Christmas song? Are you a fan of the traditional hymns like Silent Night or do you prefer the more contemporary songs like Jingle Bell Rock? Do you know all of the 12 Days of Christmas? Are you waiting patiently for your Winter Wonderland to arrive?

If so, then the Yahoo Buzz blog has a list for you. Seeing how it’s that time of year for all things festive, they decided to put one of those endless mountains of data to good use to let us know what the most popular Christmas songs are… at least from the Yahoo Search perspective.

The list, which is forthcoming, doesn’t really hold any surprises, save for the fact that Run-DMC’s Christmas in Hollis is noticeably absent. The list is a good mix of the traditional staples like Silent Night and Jingle Bells with a dash of the new breed like Mariah Carey’s All I Want For Christmas.

I was, however, surprised by the most searched song – Rudolph the Red-nosed Reindeer. One has to believe the Rudolph television event perpetuates the song’s popularity. Anyway, without further adieu, here’s Yahoo’s list of the most popular Christmas songs:

1. Rudolph, the Red-Nosed Reindeer (1949)
2. 12 Days of Christmas (16th century)
3. Nutcracker (Suite) (1891)
4. All I Want for Christmas is You (1994)
5. Frosty the Snowman (1950)
6. Jingle Bells (1857)
7. Silent Night (1816)
8. Baby It’s Cold Outside (1948)
9. O Holy Night (1847)
10. Deck the Halls (19th century)
11. Winter Wonderland (1934)
12. White Christmas (1940)
13. Santa Baby (1953)
14. Jingle Bell Rock (1957)
15. Feliz Navidad (1970)
16. All I Want for Christmas (Is My Two Front Teeth) (1944)
17. Mary, Did You Know (1984)
18. Last Christmas (1984)
19. Where Are You Christmas (2000)
20. Let it Snow (1945)

Do you concur or disagree? What songs did you expect to make the list but didn’t (you know, something like Nat King Cole’s The Christmas Song)?
