Christmas Crackers 2016

Xmas-Cheese-board

Since shopping malls are awash from October onwards with songs about sleighbells and Santa, not everybody is desperate to hear more of the same coming out of their personal headphones as the holiday season approaches.

But just in case 100 minutes of seasonally-themed Yuletide tunes is your idea of a good time, we’ve compiled this playlist containing every single Christmas-related track sent to Fresh On The Net over the last three months.

And if that still doesn’t satisfy your appetite for Festive Tuneage, you can always click through to our complete Christmas 2015 and Christmas 2014 playlists to add to your listening enjoyment.

Meanwhile Team Freshnet are are taking a seasonal break to rest our ears, fill our bellies and relax with friends and family. Our inbox re-opens on Monday January 9th and we look forward to hearing some of your new tunes for 2017 then.

With warm thanks to all our readers and listeners for your support over the past 12 months… Wishing everyone a Happy Christmas, and a peaceful and fulfilling New Year.

    I love the Dressed Like Wolves song. It doesn’t snow much here because of ICI.
    Short and sweet. Top marks from me!

    Emily Lockett’s Christmas song really hits the mark. It talks of family, hope and togetherness.

    Beautifully performed by this young Staffordshire composer, I truly believe we’ll be hearing more from young Emily for many Christmasses to come.
