    10 of the very best Christmas songs

    There are now just 10 sleeps to go until Christmas Day, hurrah! To celebrate, on today’s blog we’ve chosen 10 of our very favourite Christmas songs to help you countdown these last few days.

    Be sure to scroll right to the bottom for a very special festive interpretation of Taylor Swift’s ‘Shake it Off’ from all of us here at Haven, and of course to find out today’s prize over on our Xmas Advent Calendar competition!

    It was tricky to just choose 10 because, if I’m being honest, I absolutely love all Christmas songs but here’s our rundown of our favourite (and yes we have put ourselves in at number 1!!).

    10. Dean Martin – Let it snow
    This song makes us feel all warm and fuzzy inside. Anyone else crossing their fingers for a white Christmas?!

    9. Chris Rea – Driving home for Christmas
    We don’t know about you but it doesn’t matter where we’re driving home from, throughout the whole of December, this song is always on repeat in our heads.

    8. Jackson 5 – Santa Claus is Comin’ to Town
    A true Christmas delight, we love this version by Jackie, Tito, Jermaine, Marlon and Michael.

    7. Slade – Merry Christmas Everybody

    6. Elton John – Step into Christmas

    A classic Elton number, a little treasure from 1973.

    5. Shakin’ Stevens – Merry Christmas Everyone
    This one takes a little while to get going (or you can just skip to 55 secs to miss the cinematic intro), but oh boy, it’s a goodun!

    4. Wham! – Last Christmas
    This is just pure 1980s gold! We love everything about this song. Thank you George.

    3. Mariah Carey – All I Want For Christmas Is YouIt’s absolutely impossible to listen to this song and not crack a smile, even on a Monday morning. Go on, give it a go:

    2. The Pogues ft. Kirsty Maccoll – Fairytale of New York
    It’s been voted the best Christmas song of all time countless time and it’s definitely up there with our favourites.

    1. Haven Xmas Song.
    If you love it, share with with your friends and spread some Christmas joy!
