Every day until December 24, we’re stuffing your stockings with a new Eurovision poll and asking for your opinion about important matters such as who had the best tree backdrop in 2015 and which national final you are looking forward to the most. Consider this our advent calendar for 2015. Whether you celebrate Christmas or not, you can let us know your thoughts each and every day by casting your vote and sounding off in our comments section. There’s only three days left until Christmas, so let’s hurry to today’s poll!

Day 22: Christmassy Eurovision songs

Shops and radio stations have been playing traditional Christmas tunes since November — and we are all bored of them already. That’s why we’ve identified some Christmassy songs we’ve heard on the Eurovision stage in recent years. Below we have listed 13 Eurovision songs we find fitting for the holiday season — either because of their lyrics or the atmosphere that they evoke.

But which of them fits Christmas the best to you? Vote for your favourites in our poll. You can vote for as many songs as you wish, but you can only vote ONE time. Be sure to click the box next to each entry you want to support before pressing the vote button.

I’d say Croatia’s 1993 song (Don’t ever cry) and Yugoslavia’s 1968 (Jedan Dag)

I guess I am the only one not really feeling any Christmas vibes from songs which to me scream nothing relatable to Christmas … just another excuse for a poll I presume … anyway … I am at least glad that 3 remarkable songs are here mentioned specially since old pre-Dana International ESC is so often dismissed because at the time … we didn’t have a gay reason to follow it much less the musical choices were way under the pop/dance/trash appeal .. but for me growing up in that era stunning era of the 80s and 90s (which everybody… Read more »

Israel 1979 Hallelujah should have been in the poll.

Ben Rafter below is right, the most recent songs almost always win these polls.

In my opinion the most christmassy song is “Chain Of Lights” (San Marino 2015).

Interesting in Pre-qualifying round of Eurovision 1996, Sweden was first, Ireland on second place only Norway was not in that round as host nation. Portugal who finished on 6 place in final best placment for Portugal was only 18 in pre qualifying round, and Croatia who finished on 4 place (best placment as 1999) was only 19 in pre gualifying round.

In the past Miss Universe held in Las Vegas, Miss Austria were wearing a national costume in honor to Conchita Wurtz. Any comment about it?

Den Vilda really fits the season, especially after listening to Eivor’s Icelandic cover of the song (called Dansaðu Vindur)

I find Songbird (MF 2014) a real Christmas-song. And I just love Ellen Benediktson

“Stad i ljus” and “Den vilda” are together with “Euphoria” the best Swedish entries to enter the contest, with “Den vilda” being possibly the best one. Indeed they fit perfectly with winter overall, stunning songs. Glad to see a few “older” ones in the poll, I sometimes get the feeling only the last few years of Eurovision are generally brought up, shoving aside 50+ years of contests (and loads of amazing songs).

I would’ve voted for Estonia’s 1999 entry “Diamond of Night” too, I always think of the winter and christmas when I listen to it. 🙂

In my opinion, “Take me to your heaven” is the most christmassy song.(be aware that I haven’t heard every single eurovision song)

These polls kinda get frustrating, the newest song nearly always wins.

I have no idea why, but maybe it is the whole melody of the song but FINLAND 2012 totally puts me in a very Christmas Morning kind of mood.

You have forgotten the song that sounds most like a Christmas-song and that’s Croatia 1993 – Don’t ever cry. Close your eyes, ignore the lyrics and put in a Christmas-atmosphere inside your head.
