Blogmas 2017 Day 10: Christmas songs

No series of blogmas posts is complete without some reference to Christmas music.  Whether it be A Festival of Nine Lessons and Carols from King’s College Chapel or Mariah Carey on loop, there is something for everyone.  You can check out the six I picked last year here, below are my six for this year.  I make no apologies for having a lot of old songs!

Wham!  Last Christmas

Some of you may well have been involved/taken part in Whamaggdon.  The objective of this challenge is to go as long as possible without hearing this song.  You can read about it on the website.

Bing Crosby White Christmas

A true classic…even though we’ll be having a sunny Christmas (I hope!).

Frank Sinatra Walking in a Winter Wonderland

What’s not to like about Frank singing Christmas songs?

She and Him Blue Christmas

Another classic, and on my favourite Christmas album.

Good King Wenceslas

A great one to sing!

Jul, jul, strålande jul

A Swedish classic.

Etta James Merry Christmas Baby

Yes the old ones are the good ones!

What are some of your favourite seasonal songs?  It’s the Second Sunday in Advent too today, hence the two candles at the top of the post.

You can find Thistles and Kiwis on Facebook, and also on Instagram @thistleandkiwis.  As for Twitter….am totally inactive these days.  If you want to get in touch, email me on
