Thread Name: List Your Favorite Folk Christmas Songs
Subject: RE: List Your Favorite Folk Christmas Songs
The Holly Bears a Berry is nice, too. This is not the same as The Holly and the Ivy. (Again, I haven't checked the DT). If you want it, let me know and I'll post the words.

Then there is Down in Yon Forest. Baez sang it. The Voice Squad sings it. And if it isn't here I'll post a set of words if someone asks.

Shepherds Arise, made famous by the Copper Family is good, too.

There are lots: What about I Saw Three Ships? (aka As I Sat on a Sunny Bank)

And if you extend your quest to seasonally appropriate songs you can sing The Cutty Wren on Saint Stephen's Day and a whole bunch of wassail songs.
