I loved doing the Christmas concert in Stephen's and hearing the audience sing all the carols in between choirs. Lot of bang for your buck instead of hoping Christmas church service will pick all the ones you like. Because they never do, they always slip It Came Upon a Midnight Clear or something else in there.
I really like Mercy Me's version of Little Drummer Boy (I tend to be a traditionalist for Christmas songs)
I really was kind of surprised to see Angels we have Heard On High on the list. I voted for that one. Brings back memories of my younger brother after church singing the words, "Gloooooooooooooria, In excelsius Day Old Bread."
If you get tire of listening to carols try the Nutcracker Suite. It seems Christmasy

NSFW, but my favorite.

Not really a carol but I kind of like Lo, How a Rose E'er Blooming. Played a lot around Christmas.
My favorite as a kid

Silent Night. Used to sing it to my baby boy when driving around looking at Christmas lights to get him to go to sleep. Transfer from car to crib always a little iffy though.
"Carol of the Bells" for classic/hymn/that type of carol
Paul McCartney's "Wonderful Christmas Time" for a more contemporary style
Another vote for Carol of the Bells
