Our favourite holiday songs

Our favourite holiday songs

By Bianca Ansbro-Elliott on, December 12, 2022


Hearing the faint jingle bells in the background as you walk around the shops, or the familiar songs that you have listened to every holiday can take us back to memories of childhood and joyful moments.

This festive season we have spoken to our Relish team and some of our wonderful community to see what are their favourite Holiday songs and what it reminds them of!

Ben Atkinson-Wills, Founder of Relish:

Driving home for Christmas, Chris Rea

Cormac Stanford, Marketing Director at Relish:

White Christmas, Bing Crosby

“I have loved this song since I was a kid as my favourite Christmas film is Holiday Inn where this song was sung by Bing Crosby.”

Chelsea & Tony @chelsandvi

I Wish It Could Be Christmas Everyday, Wizzard

“I like all Christmas songs really but I do like that one!”

Keith Oliver, author of Dear Alzheimer’s

Fairytale of New York, The Pogues & Away in the Manger

“For my more modern song I like Fairytale of New York but I also really like Away in The Manger as it reminds me of my time of being Headteacher of a primary school.”

Kiah Robison, Designer at Relish:

Feliz Navidad, Jose Felicino

“This song really reminds me of being at home with my family”

Kyle Hunt, Supply Chain Manager at Relish:

Fairytale of New York, The Pogues

Kris @lifewithgrams

Christmas in New York, Shilelagh Law

“This song is about 9/11 at the people of New York at that time, my grandma is a true blue New Yorker, so this song really reminds me of my Christmas’s in New York.”

This holiday season we have collated a festive playlist that you can listen to remind you of all of your wonderful memories:
