When many people start thinking of Christmas, they immediately think of their favorite Christmas song. There are plenty to choose from including the new, like Mariah Carey's "All I Want for Christmas", and the old, like Bing Crosby's iconic version of "Happy Holiday".
The women who work at Accent on Antiques, which is located on 125 Wolfs Lane, did not hesitate when asked what their favorite songs were. "My all-time favorite ... I like them all, but my favorite is, "O, Little Town of Bethlehem," said Sue Marrella. "I think it's one of the songs that's very symbolic of Christmas."
Aileen Jaulus was unable to decide, but with good reason. "I like them all because it's a season of good will towards everybody," said Jaulus. After a little while, she admitted that her favorite was, "White Christmas."
Millie La Salvia chimed in and said, "I like "Silent Night." I think it's such a lovely, calming song."
It was clear after talking to the first three women that they all loved a different song.
Dorothy Casa excitedly said, "The Little Drummer Boy because I just love it," while Carmela Stalile exclaimed, "I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus." "It's just cute," said Stalile. "I just think it's a cute song. It brings back fun memories."
By the time all of the women had said their favorite songs, Casa and Stalile had started singing verses from "Good King Wenceslas," which they first learned as children.
