SALT LAKE CITY — It’s December and Christmas is not too far away. Time for snow, shopping for gifts, hot chocolate and — most importantly — spending time with loved ones.

One thing that gets many in the Christmas spirit is listening to holiday music. A bit of Christmas music at home or in the car can help lift holiday spirits.

For the next few weeks, we’re hosting a tournament to determine which is Utah’s favorite Christmas song. We’re starting the field with 32 songs. You have until Tuesday evening to narrow the field down to 16.

Some of the songs on the list are duplicate, but different versions. For this poll, we did not include any instrumental versions of songs.

And the nominees are, in no particular order:

Mariah Carey — “All I Want For Christmas Is You

Bruce Springsteen — “Santa Claus Is Coming To Town

Alvin & the Chipmunks — “The Chipmunk Song (Christmas Don’t Be Late)

Bobby Helms — “Jingle Bell Rock
