My favourite carols include Little Donkey, Silent Night and Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer. They all transport me back to my childhood, to school Christmas plays and bring a warmth to my heart. I can' t wait to have this experience with my children!

As for the Pop Xmas songs then - Last Christmas by George Michael, All I want by Mariah and Driving Home by Chris Rea. I love the spirit of Christmas. I only wish it was year round!

I would have liked it better if you had written a section on how old the modern christmas carols are. What was the inspiration behind most of them? Also, who wrote these songs and for what reason?

All Christmas carols do not sound nice. The other day, I heard some very old carols at my friend' s place. They were so slow and boring. I did not like them. I prefer the fast carols because they make me feel like dancing. My favourite carol is Rudolph the red-nosed reindeer.

The festival of Christmas has a special feel to it. This time is so unique that it can never be mistaken for anything else. We may not celebrate Christmas ourselves but this is still a time of great joy and peace. There is a pleasant tranquillity to Christmas that most of our festivals do not provide.

I like Christmas carols. I enjoy listening to them whenever they are played at malls and other stores. The songs are very different from what we are used to hearing in our country. I wish that we could have such nice songs even in our festivals.
