The Top 10 is:

1. Fairytale of New York - The Pogues feat. Kirsty MacColl

2. I Wish It Could Be Christmas Everyday - Wizzard

3. Merry Xmas Everybody - Slade

4. Driving Home for Christmas - Chris Rea

10. Baby, It's Cold Outside - Tom Jones & Cerys Matthews

The season to be jolly also sees 7% of motorists decorating their cars with tinsel and baubles, but drivers should be prepared for the not-so fun side of winter driving and ensure they have up-to-date breakdown cover and insurance policy.
