I must say I have rather fond memories of 'I Wish it Could Be Christmas Everyday'... proper crimbo song that one too!

Also always really liked 'Christmas Wrapping' by The Waitresses  ;)

for what it's worth, every year I try to arrange a traditional carol and post it as a Merry Christmas on various boards I frequent.

Due to other commitments, I'm not sure I'm going to get to one this year, so...

This was my '08 effort:

It might be getting a little tired by now...but what the heck...  ;)

    NO ME NO EL

    No good no will no glad no tide
    No cosy fire no warm inside
    No figs no dates no ginger beer
    No ho ho ho no season’s cheer
    No Glüh no wein no bell no peal
    No peel no fruit no festive meal
    No star no lead no candle bright
    No peace on earth no silent night

    Heartless and cynical
    Cold in the middle
    The emotion just gets in your way
    The promotion is clinical
    Little by little you’re making us pay
    Keep making us pay

    No free no will no gift no find
    No thought no count no very kind
    No buy no friend no more no nice
    No sale no deal just higher price
    No bow no wrap no sellotape
    No good TV no Great Escape
    No get no give no give no love
    No time no pray no god above

    Pointless and trivial
    Shamelessly driven
    So devoted to getting your way
    You’ve polluted the miracle
    Little by little you take it away
    Keep taking away

    Killing Christmas
    Killing Christmas
    Killing Christmas for you

    Even now in front of me
    All day and night on my TV
    ”Buy it now, it can be yours just call today”
    All my life
    We have traded all we should be

    Selling Christmas
    Selling Christmas
    Selling Christmas to you

    No more no right no gonna play
    No need no greed on Christmas day
    No buy no love no win no race
    No need no rush just breathing space
    No spend no stretch no credit card
    No more excess, decision hard
    No need no trade no buy no sell
    No you no me no me no el

    Wide eyed and magical
    Right in the middle
    This emotion I won’t shut away
    The true meaning is critical
    Little by little I’ll cut you away
    Keep cutting away
    I’ll cut you away…[/list][/size]

    Shouldn't it be "No Peel"?

    Surely you're not suggesting I should put the name of that mighty Prog establishment anywhere near a lyric pointed at the shameless cash-in of the commercial Xma$?  :shock:

    Run With The Fox by Chris Squire & Alan White. Not the most popular of songs, but I like it  :)

    I've found a hat so I can take it off to you, Pedro - the Grand Wizard of the Frost*ies!  :D

    I always enjoy listening to carols at this time of year. I love the atmosphere that the sound of carols in a low lit church makes on Christmas Eve. I might be the only Frost*ie on here who does, I think...

    Thanks but keep your hat on, it's flippin' cold!

    ...and you're not alone. A well arranged brass band does it too...and by 'well arranged' I don't mean tall ones at the back!

    Nope, not alone there, Mouse.
    Despite my heathen ways, I adore carols wot is being sung by a choir and can never resist the temptation to join in on the bass part*.
    If someone asked me if I wanted to go carolling, I'd be right there, insisting they do four-part harmonies (probably in vain), come rain or snow.

    As for brass bands, Pedro, spare a thought for the poor buggers playing outside while you do your Christmas shopping - those mouthpieces are bloody FREEZING when you start playing! And you have to make sure you wipe your mouth on your sleeve every so often else the spittle will freeze the mouthpiece to your lips.
    Ahh, happy memories...
