    Hark The Herald Angels Sing and See Amid The Winter's Snow for oldskool.
    I still like Rock and Roll Xmas by GG and Shaky's Merry Christmas Everyone. Fairytale, Christmas Rapping, Warm This Winter, Sleigh Ride...
    You hardly ever hear JT's Solstice Bells but its been on twice on Radio 2 the last 2 days! Also like Yes's Run With The Fox. I like most of them really. Mary's Boy Child, The Virgin Mary had a Baby Boy. I remember learning one in Spanish at school that began Campanas Sobre Campanas. Very jolly.
    I can live without ever hearing Last Christmas or Wonderful Christmas Time ever again ever. And Kylie's murdering of Santa Baby.

    Merry England at Christmastime

    Twas the night before Christmas, and all through the nation,
    There was misery, poverty and great deprivation
    Some stockings were empty, some fridges were bare,
    The heating turned off, little money to spare.

    Boris Johnson was cosy, a quaffing champagne,
    Cognac and Port so he’s feeling no pain,
    Stuffing his chops on goose flesh and gammon,
    Caviar, Stilton and the finest smoked salmon.

    The homeless are shivering in cardboard containers
    Ex-Servicemen, youngsters, both Leave and Remainers
    The nurses and doctors all still searching for beds
    With a shortage of staff, of money and meds

    The Moggs singing carols with moguls and bankers,
    Hedge funders, financiers and various w*nkers

    I don't know that I have a favourite as such. If I have to name one that's more tolerable than most, it would be a Winter's Tale. It gets played a lot less and doesn't mention Christmas at all, but it's a Christmas song all the same as it tells the story of a relationship breaking up at the time of year when relationship breakups peak.

    This one from the 1950s is growing on me:



    ..although I'm doing my best not to imagine Little Jimmy Osmond singing it whilst wobbling around on unfeasibly large platform soles c.1972.

    I think the problem is that you don't have to be actually not making ends meet for none of this to not apply to you. Most people exist within the archaic tribal social group. Yeh we're not living the dream but hey! let's gather together and make the best of what we've got. Not so much left over to give away.

    I have also taking a liking to "I want a hippopotamus for Christmas" in recent years.
