While I certainly agree with the Leon Redbone choice from "Elf", I'm a little dismayed at your lack of acknowledgment in one Mr. Brian Setzer's outstanding Christmas albums. They're the only ones I can stand around our house regularly.

I'd also have to say the best Christmas *song* ever is "Fairytale of New York" by the Pogues, but that's not really a whole album.
