Lance Rubin: "It Snowed" (Meaghan Smith). This song is about snow and not specific to any holiday, but I first discovered it on an iTunes Holiday Sampler a few years ago, so that means it counts. I love the strong presence of horns in this song and its overall vibe of easygoing sophistication. It evokes the childlike feeling of joy and triumph inspired by a snow day, but in a very adult way. Also, it's one of the few holiday songs you can continue to listen to in January without feeling depressed that you're living in the past.
