Did you have a favorite Christmas song when you were growing up? I did, and it's a little unusual...
I blame/thank it for single-handedly inspiring the obsession with Celtic music that I went through in Middle School.
I'm also only really partial to this version by Dennis Day, a second generation Irish immigrant (born Owen Patrick Eugene McNulty - talk about switching it up with your stage name!). The vocals are nice and casual and gentle, and the instrumentals are the best. Go ahead and shop around, I doubt you'll find a preferable Irish-inspired holiday tune!
