The art of the Christmas video is not the gift of all artists, here we examine 11 of the best and worst of the past 40 years. Ho Ho Ho.

1. Hanson: Everybody Knows The Claus:

Tricky to feel Christmasy with this dinky little trio.

2. Wizard: I Wish it could be Christmas Every Day.

Really? Everyday? Might it become a little repetitive, begin to wear you down and slowly make you question your will to live?

3. Wham: Last Christmas

The height of 80s fluff, but overall on the list of goodies?

4. Beggars Mantle: Please Daddy, don’t get drunk this Christmas 

We couldn’t agree more with the plea, sorry Dads. Although apparently in this case Daddy, worse for wear, fell underneath the Christmas tree. That’s bad.

5. Elmo & Patsy: Grandma Got Run Over By A Reindeer

Whilst on the more novel end of Christmas videos we wanted to bring you this. Take it as a warning to be extra vigilant on Christmas eve. Poor Grandma. All in all, a terrible video.

6. Band Aid: Do they know it’s Christmas (1984 original)

Phew, after 4 & 5 it’s a pleasure to present this classic. Vote now for which is your all-time favourite version of this song.

7. Bing Crosby: Silent night

Oh Bing. We can so see why they named a search engine after you, this is magical.

8. Fairytale of New York – The Pogues & Kirsty MaColl.

It’s not right to be silly about this song, it’s that good, though it is the first time many kids hear a swear word.

9. Muppet’s Christmas Carol – A thankful heart (with added Michael Caine)

Oh what can we say. “With a thankful heart and an endless joy” – Caine at his best. We promise you will be singing this for days.

10. Raymond Briggs – The Snowman 

Not a song so much as a little book turned movie and a lovely classic. Here is the 1982 original with Aled Jones on vocals.

11. Judy Garland: Have yourself a Merry Little Christmas (From Meet Me in StLouis) 

We defy you to watch this and not feel warm and wistful for Christmas. Our fav.
