Christmas Favourites

In the weeks leading up to Christmas, I carried out some polls among my Facebook friends.

Firstly, I asked them to tell me their favourite Christmas carols. The results were

1. In the Bleak Midwinter.

2. (Joint) Away in a Manger; Hark the Herald Angels Sing; Silent Night.

5. (Joint) O Little Town of Bethlehem; Once in Royal David`s City.

Secondly, I asked them to name their favourite secular (i.e. non-religious) Christmas song. The results this time were

1. (Joint) Last Christmas; Lily the Pink.

3. (Joint) I Wish It Could Be Christmas Every Day; White Christmas.

5. (Joint) Baby It`s Cold Outside; Winter Wonderland.

Finally, I asked which person or group of people, in entertainment / arts, personifies Christmas for them. The results were

1. (Joint) Bing Crosby; Slade.

3. John and Yoko.

4. Nat King Cole.

5. (Joint) Greg Lake; Morecambe and Wise; Only Fools and Horses.

Would you have agreed with any of this?
