    Eighinger: 'Silver Bells' rings in favorite Christmas songs

    Thursday, December 18 2014 9:40 AM EST2014-12-18 14:40:51 GMT
    On the way to work this morning, I found myself enjoying some of the Christmas offerings on the radio, which got me thinking about the holiday songs I enjoy the most. In most cases, I prefer modern-day Christmas music although I still appreciate the classics. However, "appreciate" and "prefer" are not necessarily the same thing.
