From today I am finally allowed to do all the Christmassy things I haven’t been allowing myself to do. I do this every year because I like to keep my favourite festive songs and videos and general sparkliness special, rather than wear them out by starting in October.
So without further ado, here are some of the youtube clips I only watch during the month of December:
Merry Christmas! Not that I’m a big fan of JLS or anything (although I did once literally walk into one of them in the corridor at work) but 4 years on from when they were on X-Factor this still makes me laugh.
My absolute favourite Christmas song – St Etienne & Tim Burgess “I Was Born On Christmas Day”. I play this every year, but this is the first time I’ve been able to find the official video on youtube, and so terrifyingly it’s almost 20 years since I’ve seen it!
Now unless you lived in Yorkshire in the 1980s this one will almost definitely mean nothing to you, but I get this jingle stuck in my head every December. I have a real obsession with old TV idents and not only does this make me feel really nostalgic, but it usually sets me off on a spiral of watching related videos that can keep me happy for hours on a Winter’s evening.
