It's simple, you name your least favourite and most irritating Christmas song and I send the winner in my own unqualified opinion a copy of "Thoroughly Decent Manners for Men" published by Debretts and the Wadworth Brewery. My thanks again to Wadworth for donating it - if you don't win you can get it for £12.50 on their website. There's a consolation prize of a bottle of Pitrok Crystal men's deodorant. I'm running this blog as a private individual, by the way, so whereas I hope the prizes will get to you before Christmas I can't promise.
Just add your pet Christmas irritation as a comment here or if Blogger is a struggle then Tweet it to me as GuyClapperton, mail it to Guy@Clapperton.co.uk and I'll put it in the comments myself.
The gruesome nominations so far are as follows - in no particular order:
Have a Cheeky Christmas - Cheeky Girls
Last Christmas - The Only Way is Essex
Mistletoe and Wine - Cliff Richard
The Frog Chorus - Paul McCartney
Stop the Cavalry - Jonah Lewie
Fairytale of New York - Ronan Keating and Moya Brennan version
Grandma We Love You - St. Winnifred's Choir
I'm Sending a Letter to Santa Claus to Bring Daddy Safely Home to Me - Gracie Fields
I'm sure there must be more - over to you! Oh, and feel free to comment on other people's nominations: I mean, Jonah Lewie? A bad record, really..?
