|Music by||traditional German folksong|
"O Christmas Tree" is the English version of the German Christmas carol, "O Tannenbaum." There are multiple variations on the lyrics in both languages; in German the oldest lyrics date to 1550, but the best-known lyrics were written by Ernst Anschütz in 1824. None of the English versions are literal translations of the German.
Prairie Dawn sings "O Christmas Tree" on the album Elmo Saves Christmas: Holiday Favorites. Rumpel performed his own version on "Die Grosse Sesamstrassen-Musikshow" in the special Weihnachten mit Ernie & Bert.
