I actually enjoy listening to Christmas carols in July or August, when they are totally fresh and weirdly entertaining. I'll second the vote for "Past 3 O'Clock," one of my all-time favorites and expand out to other languages. Placido Domingo singing "La Virgen Lava Panales" and any good performance of "Riu, Riu, Chiu" are always enjoyable to me, and don't even get me started on the Poznan Nightingales singing Polish carols!
