Are all those cutesy carols and pop-rock treatments getting on your nerves?
Maybe you prefer REAL Christmas carols--like, say, Silent Night, penned in 1818 in Austria by Joseph Mohr and Franz Gruber, which has persisted all these years because it so elegantly conjures a Christmas mood.
Or maybe you like the exuberance of Joy to the World, or the inspiring O Holy Night, or the lullaby innocence of Away in a Manger.
Vote below in Patch's Best and Worst Christmas Carol contest. The deadline is Dec. 21 at noon Central time. We'll announce the winners soon after.
