Christmas/New year songs

 

Hi guys!

Are there any traditional Christmas/New Year songs in your countries? The songs everyone knows and remembers from early childhood?

For example, one of the most popular New Year songs in Russia is "В лесу родилась елочка / V lesu rodilas' yolotchka/ In the woods was born a Christmas tree". Here is the English translation of the lyrics:

In the woods was born a Christmas tree, it was growing in the wood
In summer and winter it was straight and green.
The snow sang it a lullaby:
Sleep Christmas tree, sleep tight!
The frost put snow around it saying: don't freeze!
The rabbit hopped under it, the angry wolf just ran by.
An old man came and chopped it down.
And now you are here beautiful on the party here with us.
And you gave children lots and lots of happiness and fun.

And here is a link to the video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s081dTOC3yY

Looking forward to your replies! :)
