Wonderful Winter Warbles

I was really going for an alliteration there, and apparently "warble" is appropriate for song.  Who knew? 
JP and I had a little holiday gathering over the weekend, and I wanted to put together a playlist that wasn't totally schmaltzy Christmas-only tunes; my goal was something that would be accessible for December and January/February.  And okay, there are some holiday pieces, but also some good songs about how great life is and gratefulness.  What are your favorite songs to sing along to during this season?

White Winter Hymnal by Fleet Foxes
Christmas (Baby Please Come Home) by Dustin Kensrue
It Don't Have to Change by John Legend
Winter Winds by Mumford and Sons
Come on!  Let's Boogey to the Elf Dance! by Sufjan Stevens
Hard Candy Christmas by Dolly Parton
What Are You Doing New Year's Eve? by Rufus Wainwright
This Good Night is Still Everywhere by Dustin Kensrue (his holiday album is great!)
Count Your Blessings (Instead of Sheep) by Diana Krall
Coldest Winter by Kanye West
Fairytale of New York by Dustin Kensrue
It Really Is (A Wonderful Life) by The Indigo Girls
Faded from the Winter by Iron and Wine
River by Herbie Hancock feat. Corinne Bailey Rae
Sister Winter by Sufjan Stevens
Just Like Christmas by Low
Let it Snow by A Fine Frenzy
Ain't No Chimneys in the Projects by Sharon Jones and the Dap-Kings

P.S. The picture above is from my first winter here in DC, March 2009.  I was like a little kid in 3 inches of snow; just couldn't belive I could walk outside and throw a snowball!
