Christmas number one songs - The best and worst of British pop music

Christmas Number Ones

Official British Christmas number one hit songs based on the week-ending pop music charts of the nearest Sunday after christmas. Looking through the list of songs you'll notice how few of the number one hits were related to christmas at all. There are a whole host of novelty songs that have made it to number one over christmas, most of which it's fair to say should never have been released on the charts in the first place!
