It’s almost that time of year, the shops are releasing their long-awaited TV ads, films are taking over the channels and Christmas songs are being played everywhere you go. As we start kitting the KDR office out for Christmas we wanted to know which Christmas songs make the team feel festive.
Take a look below for some of the Christmas songs that will be making an appearance in the office this year…

“Home Alone is always on at Christmas so when I hear this song it reminds me of Christmas” – Hollie

“Although this is not a traditional Christmas song, Lily Allen covered this version for the John Lewis advert in 2013 and it is my favourite to date. It makes me cry every time!” – Georgia

“I don’t really like Christmas songs but this one reminds me of good times with family” – James
