Last Friday, marked the beginning of December, a clear sign if there ever was one that Christmas is just around the corner. With the countdown already on, I have decided to share some of my favourite Christmas songs, with you guys.

Much to my Fiancé’s amusement, I have been blasting these out in the car, whilst we have been out and about doing our Christmas shopping. Each of these songs holds a special memory for me, from watching my favourite Christmas films such as ‘Home Alone’ and ‘Love Actually’ to taking part in my school Christmas concert and lastly dancing in our living room, whilst decorating the tree. So, without further ado, here are my favourite Christmas songs for the festive season.

Disclaimer: Prepare for some cheesy numbers and a few soundtracks from the ‘Home Alone’ movie.

  1. I wish It Could Be Christmas Everyday – Blizzard

  2. Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree – Brenda Lee

  3. Do they Know it’s Christmas – Band Aid

  4. Last Christmas – Wham

  5. All I want for Christmas Is You – Mariah Carey

  6. Santa Claus Is Coming To Town – The Jackson 5

  7. Somewhere Only We Know – Lily Allen

  8. Driving Home for Christmas – Chris Rea

  9. Merry Xmas Everybody – Slade

  10. Christmas Is All Around (Love Actually) – Billy Mack

  11. Merry Christmas Everyone – Shakin’ Stevens

What songs are on your ‘Christmas playlist’ for 2017? Do you prefer classics or will you be the first in line to purchase the latest release from Rak-Su?

I do love Christmas adverts.


They say that “A Sunday well spent, brings a week of content” and a visit to our local garden centre where there was lots of festive displays and beautiful Christmas decorations really was the perfect way to spend a Sunday in December. Both Al and I loved looking at all of the sparkly things and even got to meet the lovely Gruffalo. A few elves may of been spotted amongst the Christmas trees as well. Sadly Santa was busy feeding his reindeer, but we did manage to pick up a few presents from his workshop – ok the garden centre.

Luckily Al insisted on paying a visit to the lovely coffee shop prior to looking around the place where I was able to enjoy some delicious warm scones with clotted cream and jam, which was then polished off with a lovely cup of hot Earl Grey.

As for the rest of our Sunday, we did a spot of Christmas shopping for my Westie Toby Bear, created a festive hamper for some loved ones, enjoyed a moreish Sunday Roast and we are now going to relax on the sofa, eat a tub of Quality Street and wait in anticipation to see who is going to be crowned King or Queen of the jungle on I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out of Here.


How do you like to spend your Sunday?

Love Emma.
