Rock the night away with Christmas favorites

Liam and Zoe Eastman were among locals who shared their favorite Christmas songs.

There’s really no way to put a number on the top 10 Christmas songs of all time.
Especially if you were to ask Zoe and Liam Eastman.
“I think Jingle Bells should be it,” said Liam, 2. “I like it when you say ‘Hey!’ And I got to make some bells at the library that I put on the tree at Aunt Foo’s house.”
Zoe, 4, agreed, and the pair even broke into song when asked what their all-time favorite Christmas song was. The two are the niece and nephew of Ruth Miller of Andalusia.
Ask others, and you’d probably get a variety of answers.
The World of Christmas Web site lists “White Christmas” by Bing Crosby as its No. 1, and while it’s still too early to know if Covington County will actually get a white Christmas, one can bet there are loads of people hoping it comes true.
No. 2 on the list is “Last Christmas” by George Michael, and while that may not be on most’s top 10 list, one can bet that against No. 3 is on the list. It was a no-brainer for Brendan Short.
“Rudolph the Red-nosed Reindeer!” Short exclaimed. “He’s my favorite reindeer, and I almost know all the words.”
Short, whose home was destroyed Dec. 13 by a fire caused by a space heater, said it’s shaping up to be a great Christmas.
“You wouldn’t think so, but it has,” he said. “I get to stay with my (grandmother Rita Ward) and my friend.”
Nos. 4-8 – “I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus;” “Jingle Bell Rock;” “The Christmas Song;” “Snoopy’s Christmas;” and “Here Comes Santa Claus” – actually fell behind Ward’s No. 1 choice – “Little Drummer Boy.”
“To me, that song just brings back childhood memories of Christmas,” Ward said. “We used to sit around as a family and watch it on TV.”
Ward said after the fire that destroyed her daughter’s home, which is located next door to her, people’s generosity has been overwhelming.
“That song, and what people have done for us, that’s the true meaning of Christmas,” she said. “It’s been amazing.”
