We asked what your go-to Christmas song was and you responded. As we kick off Christmas music on CHVN, here are the top five in no particular order.


The song has been done time and time again, but the original gospel artist and comedian Mark Lowry, who recorded the original song back in 1996. The song talks to Mary and asks her if she could have possibly imagined what Jesus would grow up to be. It ended up reaching the sixth spot on CCM Magazine's AC Chart.

Was this even a question? Boney M is one of the best selling artists of all time, selling more than 150 million records. In Canada, however, they are probably best known for their Christmas Album. The album, which went platinum twice in Canada, selling more than one million copies, features the popular single Mary's Boy Child/Oh My Lord. The record was released in 1981 and remains a staple in Canadian households today.

Little Drummer Boy is often a favourite and has been redone many times in multiple styles, sometimes with a consistent snare drum and other times with all out bass. For King and Country strike a great balance of melodic lyrics and good old-fashioned drumming in their newest Christmas single.

Speaking of the Little Dummer Boy, how can we forget Winnipeg icon Sean Quiggly, who recorded a version of Little Drummer Boy while playing snow-covered drums in a pair of shorts. We do play his song still, listen to our Made in Manitoba feature to catch it this December.

Lauren Daigle has one of the best voices in Christian music so it's no wonder that her 2016 album Behold is so popular. It was nominated for a GMA Dove Award under Christmas/Special Event Album of the Year and a Grammy Award for Best Contemporary Christian Music Album. It's an album worth listening to!
