Whether it’s for a full blown house party, a small get together or you just fancy playing a few festive songs while you get ready to go out in the morning, there are some tunes that make it back onto everyone’s playlist year after year. Even the Christmas adverts on the TV include some of our best loved Christmas songs.
Some are upbeat and you can have a dance to, some are catchy little numbers that make you want to sing along to, and then there are those that make you either reflect on what you’ve done during the past year or what’s happened in the world around you.
But one things for sure, you can’t beat a good old Christmas playlist, so in no particular order, here’s what made it on to mine for Christmas 2016!
