***Festive Fun - Christmas Number One's***

We all love Christmas songs…but what about the Christmas Number One?  Some interesting choices have made it to the top of the Christmas charts over the years – remember ‘Mr Blobby’?!  What’s your favourite Christmas Number One single?

 

I think my vote would have to go with… Merry Christmas Everybody by Slade in 1973!  A great Crimbo tune!

I had Rage from first time round but sadly re-bought it the other year.

1987 is the worst song on the list. Not only is it a terrible song but it also kept Fairytale of New York off number one.

2 great songs!  I love the Wizzard one and agree that I would much have preferred the Fairytale of New York - guaranteed to make you feel Christmassy! 😄

 

Not so sure about the Rage song though... 😉
