Merry Christmas I don't want to fight tonight by THE RAMONES,   Had to use UG's page because the Chordie  version was terrible.

Re: SUGGESTIONS: DECEMBER 2017 FEATURED SONG OF THE MONTH

My favorite Christmas song to play is John Denver's Christmas for Cowboys. This is a very American Christmas song.

The most poignant Christmas song I know to perform - though I do it only poorly - is John McCutcheon's Christmas in the Trenches.  It is a song about an Englishman, but it was written by a man who lives about 80 miles from my home in the Virginia Piedmont.  I'm not sure if that counts, but we tend to be willing to bend the rules for a good song, and I think this is a great song.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sJi41RWaTCs  It is perhaps relevant to know that my grandfather was a man of Swiss heritage drafted by the Americans who spent a few years killing a large number of German people in Belgium. There was a battle where he was the last man alive from either the Germans or Americans.  He picked up his BAR, carried as much ammunition and as little food and water as he could, and walked 40 miles away from the front to the closest American position he knew about. When he reported that he - standing alone - represented what was left of his entire division, rather than permitting rest the Army determined it would be wise to ship him off to Verdun. Those who are military historians know well the horrors of Verdun, and my grandfather was a machine-gunner. Feared for their ferocity and effectiveness, and targeted for the same reasons. When he returned to his home town, his ferocity was reserved only for rabbits in his garden and Joe Garagiola's baseball play-by-play.

Can I also suggest "Hallelujah" by Leonard Cohen - it's not totally Christmas-y, but I think I can convince my wife to sing this one wink

Anymore suggestions for December Christmas songs? 

I will probably dig out a New Zealand Christmas song and  suggest it (not sure which one yet)  and the Song ~Mary did you know~
