Christmas number one albums.
1963: The Beatles - With The Beatles
1964: The Beatles - Beatles For Sale
1965: The Beatles - Rubber Soul

1967: The Beatles - Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band
1968: The Beatles - The Beatles
1969: The Beatles - Abbey Road

2000: The Beatles - 1

Pretty amazing! (It should have been Revolver in 1966 instead of SOM).
These are ALL my favourites!

The Immaculate Collection is easily the best, followed by Dido and Shania Twain, the rest not so much...

1994: Beautiful South - Carry On up The Charts

This still stands out as being the most unlikely christmas #1. I bet they couldn't believe how well it sold for them, especially as their most recent few albums had only just scraped gold I think.

Garyfeld -- 'The Singles - The First Ten Years' by ABBA, was No.1, (1 Week), on W/E 27th November 1982.

It was then replaced at No.1 by 'The John Lennon Collection', which was that Year's Christmas No.1 Album.
John Lennon's Album was at No.1 for 6 Weeks - W/E 4th December 1982 to W/E 8th January 1983.
