Christmas Cracker or Festive Flop? The dangerous territory of Christmas songs…

Love it or hate it, Christmas is a time for silly jumpers, ridiculous decorations and, most importantly, a selection of songs that everyone knows, pretends to hate, but will nevertheless belt out throughout the festive season.

As we approach the 25th we thought it would be fun to make a playlist featuring some of these pieces of musical-Marmite. We’ll keep a neutral stance and let you decide for yourself – is it a Christmas Cracker or a Festive Flop?

There we have it – a mixture of classic, and maybe not so classic(?) Christmas songs, but whether you are a self-confessed scrooge or love this time of year, I’m sure this little playlist will come in very handy if you’re looking for a bit of festive singalong!

Merry Christmas!
