It's December which means for those who have them, it's time to get out those chocolate advent calendars!
But for those of you who, like me, don't do such things anymore (and indeed for those of you who still do!), I thought I'd give my own unique little twist on this festive time of year with my Musical Advent Calendar countdown of my Top 25 favourite Christmas songs!
Culminating with my favourite on Christmas Eve, I will blog a song a day, beginning with an opening double salvo today to whet your appetite!
So here we go...
Cole's Musical Christmas Advent Calendar - Day 1!
We begin with an Irving Berlin classic from 1942. It's Bing Crosby's White Christmas.
We zip forward in time to a modern hit by Peter Kay's alter-ego Geraldine McQueen in 2008 - Once Upon a Christmas Song!
