A Dozen And A Half Renditions Of “The Christmas Song (Chestnuts Roasting On An Open Fire)”

BLOGGER'S NOTE: I actually put this post together around this time last year and saved it, but forgot to post it before the Christmas season had passed. So here ya go!

PREVIOUSLY SCHEDULED INTRO:  Sometimes, to really appreciate a song you have to hear it by a variety of different artists. Admittedly, 18 different artists is a bit overkill, but I had a hard time narrowing it down. You should have heard some of the ones that DIDN'T make the cut! Anyway, just pick and choose which ones you want to listen to, and comment wherever you saw this post with your personal favorite rendition. I definitely know my favorite. Enjoy!  ~  JH
