Suggest your own Christmas Songs

By the way, in the course of this thing, if you have any suggestions as to what you think I should listen too or any Christmas toon that you think may have passed me by, then please feel free to email me at billyblagg@hotmail.com. I WILL listen and probably respond providing I don't get too many lunatics - yep, you know who you are - writing in.

The 5th Annual Billy Blagg Advent Calendar of Christmas Songs

The annual hoopla is about to begin again and I'm sure you know the drill by now. 25 songs - some crackers, a few turkeys and a large dose of Christmas cheer - 25 days; and the regular search for all that is good, bad and plain bonkers about Christmas records.

Regulars will know this calendar has been a festive staple over at my home site at www.westhamonline.net and also at ESPN FC where I regularly confused the football supporters there when I hijacked the December West Ham page to try and introduce a few Christmas songs into the mix.

Bit by bit though, it's become something of a guilty pleasure for many and this is the first year the calendar has been blogged. It remains to be seen if it's the last.

It all starts on December 1st so join me here.
