Songs with Questionable Status as Christmas Songs

  1. My Favorite Things - I love this song, but what does it have to do with Christmas?
  2. Mama Liked the Roses - It's on the Elvis Christmas album, but doesn't even mention the holiday.
  3. O Come O Come Emmanuel - Okay, I get the sentiment with this one, but it is not what I would call festive.

I want to know why all the snowy/cold weather songs are Christmas songs. It never snows here until February- why aren't we singing "Let it Snow" or "Baby It's Cold Outside" then?

I decided not to jump into the cold weather vs. Christmas song, because that could've gone on all day. But I get what you're saying.
