What Makes A Comper’s Christmas?

Posted on: December 8th, 2011 by Jason 4 Comments

Over the five weeks of our Christmas Countdown competition we asked a few questions about your favourite things at Christmas. We wanted to know avout your favourite Christmas movie, song, carol, food and what you’d like to see under the tree from Santa. We’ve collected all the data, verified it and and here are the things that make a Comper’s Christmas!

1. Favourite Christmas Movie

Topping the list was Elf, starring Will Ferrell as Buddy the Elf who walks through the seven levels of the Candy Cane forest to find his real Dad in New York City. Not far behind was Home Alone and this was followed by the classic White Christmas. Some of you “Believe” and chose Miracle on 34th Street as your favourite Christmas movie, whilst others preferred the “Bah Humbug” of A Christmas Carol, our 5th placed movie. The Dickens Classic would probably have taken a higher spot but it’s vote was split by different versions!

Disappointingly not many of you chose Die Hard!!

2. Favourite Christmas Song

This was the tightest of all the categories with a wide range of songs chosen. However, topping the charts was Fairytale of New York by The Pogues & Kirsty McColl. This was followed by Wham’s Last Christmas and Merry Christmas Everyone from Slade. White Christmas popped up at No.4 whilst Wizzard’s I Wish It Could Be Christmas Everyday beat off Rockin’ Around The Christmas Tree (!!) for 5th place.

3. Favourite Christmas Carol

If favourite song was the tightest category, then favourite carol was the most one sided. Silent Night polled over 35% of the vote to easily beat off a challenge from Away In A Manger at 2. Jingle Bells, that well known Christmas Carol (!) turned up in third place with O Come All Ye Faithful and In The Bleak Mid Winter making up the rest of the top 5.

4. Favourite Christmas Food

This Christmas you’re all looking forward to your Roast Turkey. This was a fairly comfortable winner in for favourite Christmas food! Mince Pies and Christmas Pudding followed in second and third place, whilst Pigs in Blankets (yum) popped into fourth place. That left Christmas Cake to take fifth place. Surprisingly sprouts didn’t feature very highly at all. We guess you’ve been using them to fill your baths with?

5. Christmas Most Wanted!

We wanted to know what present you’d most like to see under your Christmas Tree this year! An iPad 2 (some of you were just happy with an iPad) was the most popular answer with the Amazon Kindle following in second place. After that the comper’s most wanted present this year is a laptop – presumably so you can do keep on comping all over the house. Some comper’s aren’t materialistic and opted to have peace and happiness as their ideal present whilst others just wanted snow. A few people also wanted their front teeth!

So there we have it – a Comper’s Christmas! We hope you enjoyed our fun festive look at your answers and hopefully have got you in a bit of festive spirit with the videos enclosed.

    The only one I didn’t have as top was the film Elf.

    I must be old-fashioned because I love ‘It’s a Wonderful life’. The Pogues is my favourite festive tune though. My favourite carol has to be ‘Away in a Manger’because I love to see the little ones sing it.My favourite food is cranberry sauce, which always makes me feel festive. Finally, my favourite present would be a hug from my grandchildren. My Christmas is already on the up, I’ve won a cashmere wrap, a handbag, a Christmas tree with lights, a hamper and a Freeview party package in the last fortnight – all thanks to Loquax’s links. Merry Christmas to you and keep up the good work.

    Thanks for sharing this with us, its been great fun reading , listening and watching the clips. Sadly no mention of bread sauce,brandy butter or the assortment of strange sickly liquers! Have a very happy Christmas and hopefully a well earned break.
