    I wrote the comment about Lennon and McCartney being personally responsible for the two worst Christmas songs and I did mean Happy Xmas for Lennon. I knew it would be on the countdown though. My top pick was I WIsh It Could Be Christmas Everyday by Wizzard, which probably won’t be on the countdown. If you’ve never heard it, watch the video. It’s crazy. Merry Christmas!
