I can't remember where I first heard this, but it quickly became my favorite version of Carol of the Bells. Great Appalachian/Americana feel.

You wouldn't think a upbeat version of Silent Night would work or even sound appropriate.  You'd be wrong.

John Denver & The Muppets 12 Days of Christmas
Youtube FjM00n127Ns
sorry for sound quality, but honestly, who wouldn't rather watch the Muppets sing this instead of just listening.

//Frankly, the whole album is gold
//Even the ones John Denver sings alone on.
//Except maybe the part about Alfie the Christmas Tree.  That one is dumb.

While "It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year" is the definitive Andy Williams Christmas song, I think this one does the same thing better:
