My favorite Christmas album EVER and quite possibly my favorite album EVER is this one by Sufjan Stevens. His version of "O Come, O Come Emmanuel" is my favorite song.
"Indie blasphemy." That's what one reviewer says about the album here - while recommending it.
I must admit that for me, listening to Sufjan Stevens is my lame attempt to be "indie" and/or "edgy". Lame attempt. I don't listen to much music - mostly Christian worship music, and UK pop and/or rock (U2, Coldplay, etc.). I don't recommend this album for everyone. It took a few times through for it to grow on Naomi.
Here's a music video with my second favorite song on the album:
Here's the kids dancing to the same song, while singing "Ring around the Rosie":
