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!
I'm blogging a song a day, culminating with my favourite on Christmas Eve. So let's continue on our seasonal countdown...
Cole's Musical Christmas Advent Calendar - Day 9!
Today we have a song that has only become a seasonal favourite of mine over the past year or two. I'd never given this song any credit in years gone by and yet somehow out of nowhere, I am now a firm fan of David Essex's 'A Winter's Tale'.
Watching the video over now, it's hard to fathom that this is the man who was recently on Eastenders, almost 30 years later!
But still, it's a sweet melancholic ballad and I adore it!
