Fairytale of New York

Has to be my favourite ever Christmas single, the lyrics are superb and everytime it comes on I still put the radio up. Great to hear and always reminds me of my Irish roots along with my many ancestors from past generations who emigrated to New York in search of a better life and the American dream. Shame it never made Christmas No1 and instead we get that X Factor trash at the top which is making a packet for Simon Cowell.

The one sad part is that Kirsty MacColl died so tragically six years ago at Christmas.

Anyway Happy Christmas to all.
