Maybe it's nostalgia speaking, but Linus and Lucy is probably the song I most associate with your standard warm fuzzy Christmas memories. Strangely, the Pogues don't remind me of Christmas much at all.

I really like Fairytale of New York, but Linus and Lucy is a great song on a great album which reminds me of Christmas more than any other thing under the sun, and that includes Matt's litany of Festivus complaints.

I guess fairytale of new york by default, because the other one sucks and you all must have horrible Christmases if "Peanuts" is what you associate with the Christmas season.
