Christmas Carols

I saw this item on BBC breakfast about the nation’s top 5 Christmas carols, as voted for by listeners of Classic FM.

1. O Holy Night
2. Silent Night
3. In the Bleak Mid Winter (Darke)
4. Hark the Herald Angels Sing
5. In the Bleak Mid Winter (Holst)

Far be it from me to question the collective wisdom of Classic FM listeners, but aren’t these all…well, a bit shit? I’m a damned heathen but I love belting out a good carol at this time of year and none of these would make my top 5 (Hark the Herald is ok, but the rest – pffft). My top 5 are:

1. Deck the Halls (fa la la la)
2. O Come All Ye Faithful
3. God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen
4. Joy to the World
5. Ding Dong Merrily on High
