Japanese Christmas Songs...

If anyone knows of any japanese christmas songs, wether they be original or translated, could you possibly name a few? I haven't been able to find any japanese christmas songs... and I've been searching for quite a while, to find none. So please help me out =D.

Di Gi Charat - Welcome to X'Mas

It's sort of silly, but I like it ^_^ and there's also a good Di Gi Charat christmas wallpaper.

Must it be from an anime series? If not, here's a few that I like...

12 Gatsu no Love Song - Gackt (favourite)
Christmas Eve - Tatsurou Yamashita (classic, similar to "Last Christmas")
Itsukano Merry Christmas - B'z
White Song - Hyde

edit : these are not the "Jingle Bell" or "Silent Night" type of Christams Songs, they are the modern pop type.

Christmas isn't a traditional Japanese holiday, you must realise... so there really aren't any "traditional" Christmas tunes... generally, thouh, there are lots of dumb Christmas songs from various anime. Digimon has some, Di Gi harat does, Sailormoon does, Nadesico does... the list goes on and on. Your best bet would be to look for anime X-Mas soundtracks.
There are also Japanese-language versions of a lot of "traditional" Christmas songs, like Rhudolph, Jingle Bells, I saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus, etc... lyrics for most of these can be found at http://www.megchan.com/lyrics/digimon.html ... just ctrl-F for "Christmas"... then follow the links! ^^

Oh I know it's not traditionally a japanese holiday, but after hearing Porno Graffiti's Hard Days, Holy Nights I figured I'd search for more songs like that.

Edit: Thank you all very much... =D

Porno Graffiti? Then you should consider my suggestions then...

B'z is a two man rock group
Gackt was formerly the lead vocal from rock group Malice Mizer
Hyde is also the lead vocal from rock group Larc-en-Ciel

I haven't heard "Hard Days, Holy Nights" yet, but I expect it to be quite a fast paced number usual of Porno Graffiti. A similar recommendation would be...

Burning X'mas from T.M.Revolution
