I can't see them ever removing Xmas songs from the charts, for a number of reasons

1) They only take over for about 5 weeks of the year

2) People LIKE Christmas songs, the average Joe would be happy to see them in the charts


3) What counts as a Christmas song? Does it have to reference Christmas? What counts as a reference to Christmas? is East 17 actually a Christmas song? It's too much of a grey area

I personally don't mind it at all!

I quite like listening to the chart when there’s Christmas songs present too. It’s nice to hear Christmas songs mixed in with regular chart stuff - listening to a Christmas song-only chart would get way too dreary way too fast (although I’d never get tired of the holy trinity of Christmas songs: The Pogues, Mariah, Wham!).

The only time that a Christmas chart invasion would annoy me is when it stops a song completely from entering the Top 40, denying a good song of a high peak (for instance this week with G-Eazy & Halsey missing out on #40 due to Christmas. Unless it takes off which I think is unlikely unfortunately, Him & I won’t make it higher this time of the year sad.gif

I'm perfectly happy to see all these Christmas songs in the Top 40. I think non-massive artists will just have to get used to the fact that they can't release around the Christmas period.
