Christmas Playlist

These are some of the favourite Christmas songs that always get played while we consume our Christmas feast, year in year out. Even though each year we say we will give them a miss, we never do. Funnily enough, though, once they are played, they never get played again, once Christmas Day is over, that's it.

The playlist is pretty unashamedly seventies-oriented, plus several from personal favourites like Steeleye Span and Mary Chapin Carpenter that may not make it on to most people's list.

Yes, there is some cheese on there, but Christmas is a time for consuming cheese.
