The signature sights and sounds of Christmas are amongst the most recognisable symbols in the world so to celebrate (and please bear in mind that it doesn't take much for us to celebrate the season!) this is your chance to sample a collection of songs that rejoice in their honour. As you'd expect this playlist is a hotchpotch of styles, genres and tempos but then that is Christmas in a nutshell. So while you can almost feel winter's cool breezes in your hair during Ella Fitzgerald's 'Sleigh Ride' you can simultaneously snuggle up beside that 'Candle In The Window' as presented by country group Alabama.
This is joyous set of Christmas songs that celebrate every aspect of the season from the religious carols such as Andy Williams' 'Hark! The Herald Angels Sing' to the secular bubbliness of Gene Autry's 'Rudolph The Red-Nosed Reindeer'. There are songs for the family like Alma Cogan's 'Christmas Cards' and also moments that are a little grittier courtesy of the man in black Johnny Cash and his 'Figgy Pudding'. As you party with the Waitresses on their 'Christmas Wrapping' or get contemplative with Annie Lennox's 'As Joseph Was A Walking' you begin to understand that the rich vibrancy of the symbols of the season are the reason it is the most anticipated time of the year.
