I love the cheesy-ness of I wish it could be Christmas every day (Wizzard) and Merry Christmas Everyone (slade).
I always sing my heart out to All I want for Christmas is you (Mariah Carey) and Last Christmas (Wham).
Do they know it's Christmas (Band aid) and War is over (John and Yoko) always make me feel blessed and thankful for what we have.
Fairytale of New York (Kirsty MacColl) just always makes me smile.
White Christmas (Bing Crosby) just makes me fell all warm and homely as does Let it snow! (Dean Martin)
I love the traditional songs to sing with the kids such as Rudoph the Rednose reindeer, the 12 days of Christmas, frosty the snowman, Santa Claus is coming to town and We wish you a merry Christmas.
My favourite carol is Silent Night. Sinead O Conner sings a lovely version and it almost always makes me cry and In the Bleak Mid Winter always takes me straight back to sitting in a Church with school during our Christmas show.
