Well, it's that time of year again, when Christmas songs are played in every shop and you can't walk around a corner without being confronted by a creepy image of Santa. This year I wanted to create a little mini series in order to get back into blogging. So, to fill this role I introduce to you 'Merry Listmas', where I will write a short list -style post related to Christmas each day until the big day. Today I thought I would kick start this series with my top 10 Christmas songs...

1) Fairytale of New York - The Pogues & Kirsty McColl
2) Christmas Lights - Coldplay
4) Underneath the Tree - Kelly Clarkson
6) Fool's Holiday - All Time Low
7) Jingle Bell Rock - Glee
8) Mistletoe and Wine - Cliff Richard
10) Let it snow - Dean Martin
