There are a lot of traditional Christmas/played a lot in December songs you would murder your own kittens in exchange for never having to hear them again.
This is not that thread. This is for songs that you love that may or may not be about Christmas, but that you associate with (in the Northern Hemisphere) the darkest night of the year. Tell people about songs they should know about, and don't, or maybe do, but had forgotten.
You are not a punching bag, my dear,
I think your darkest day should have some light this year,
I think you should stay right here.
Dar Williams, "Your Fire, Your Soul"
We drank a toast to innocence
We drank a toast to time
Reliving in our eloquence
Another auld lang syne
A melancholy song about running into an old girlfriend in the old hometown.
Dan Fogelberg, "Same Auld Lang Syne."
It's the season of eyes meeting over the noise
And holding fast with sharp realization
It's the season of cold making warmth a divine intervention
You are safe here you know now
Vienna Teng, "The Atheist Christmas Carol"
Horslips were one of the first successful Irish rock bands. In 1975, they put out a Christmas album, "Drive the Cold Winter Away". For me, it isn't Christmas until we've played "The Snow It Melts The Soonest".
Oh the snow it melts the soonest when the winds begin to sing
And the corn it ripens fastest when the frosts are setting in,
And when a woman tells me that my face she'll soon forget,
Before we part I wad a croon, she's fain to follow yet.
