Forum - General - The Christmas Chart

Here is a list of the biggest Christmas songs to chart since 1960. To keep it fair, I have made it based on peak position rather than points as the size of the chart varies wildly.

Thanks for this! Summer Wonderland's positions are inverted though
Thanx Alley. I made a few mistakes. You spend hours working these things out and a minor mistake changes the whole chart. I fixed it but the song drops down the list majorly.
There will be a few more special charts coming in the next few days too as I process statistics from 2016. Watch this space.
Have a great Christmas.

You too Tempest I just wanted Mariah to be a little bit higher haha!
If you base the chart on points she would be a lot higher but the chart would be much smaller.
