Poll Watch: Xmas song faves

If you’re like most people, you’d list “O Holy Night” as one of your top three Christmas songs.

Or at least that’s what the pollsters at Zogby International say. (Campaign season is over, and pollsters have to ask about something.)

They asked 2,330 adults last month to pick their top three favorite holiday songs from a list of nine tunes, and O-H-N topped the voting, selected by 58 percent.

“White Christmas” which might’ve done better in Spokane, given our fondness for things Bing, was second with a mention on 41 percent of those selected, and “The Christmas Song” aka Chestnust Roasting on an Open Fire, was close behind at 38 percent.

Admittedly, these are stats of questionable application to the populace as a whole, because respondents were only asked to select from nine songs, out of what, a bazillion holiday offerings. Not on the list: Joy to the World, Hark the Herald Angels Sing, Santa Claus is Coming to Town, and many that would quickly come to mind if one were to say “Quick, name nine holiday or Christmas songs.
