Which type of song would you rather have as the Christmas #1. Would you rather have a:

1. A charity or novelty song, e.g all of LadBaby’s songs, Justin and the NHS, etc.
2. A regular Christmas song, e.g. Last Christmas, Santa Tell Me and All I Want For Christmas Is You
3. An everyday chart song, e.g. positions, Sweet Melody and willow.

This is actually a good question (and I'm pretty sure I know which one most people would pick) but you should have done it as a poll.

Definitely not a regular chart song, that would be rather boring, so either of the other two.

Added a poll as this question would be better for it~

I honestly like a mix of all three, as long as there's SOMETHING happening, I like that the Christmas chart is one week where all sorts of weird and wonderful things can chart, can't think of anything worse than it becoming 'just another week'.

I went for regular Christmas song, but actually I would have added a fourth option which I'd have picked: a new original Christmas song.

Novelty is only fine imo if it's good but Mr Blobby and Ladbaby is not the novelty I like at all because it just plain isn't funny..

Christmas songs being Christmas #1 for me but I'm not opposed to a regular song getting there unless it's something that is awful.

This. Don’t care what type it is, as long as it’s good. This goes for charity songs too. Yeah great, it’s for charity, but a crap song is a crap song.

I’d rather it be a proper battle between “regular” new releases (or new christmas songs: Mariah going number one every year would be boring too) with big artists going out head to head instead of what we have now of one charity single taking off and no one daring to challenge it (although it looks like Ed Sheeran may be but by releasing on Monday instead of Friday that gives LadBaby a huge advantage)

A song that matches up to the quality of previous Christmas No.1s that I happen to like.

Same. I wouldn't want Mariah there every year.

OK now the poll is up I went for a regular Christmas song, but I wish it was a new Christmas song rather than a classic.

I want the balance of a good quality song and one that feels like an event. 'Rockabye' was my favourite Christmas #1 since 2009 in terms of quality but the fact that it was just another standard week at the top for it really dulled the concept of the Christmas #1. So I like the effort of the LadBaby campaigns but wish the music was better.

Out of those options I'd pick "A regular Christmas song" as I enjoy a large majority of them and it at least feels unique to the festive period.

I'd prefer a regular song like "Rockabye" or one of the Spice Girls singles. Not Christmas related, but maybe released just before Christmas so that it can be part of a 'battle'.

I'd be up for a Christmas song being the #1 if it was a new and fresh one every year, but not Mariah/Wham/The Pogues etc. Although at this point I'd take anything other than LadBaby.

I like a mix of all of them but voted a Christmas song!

I hate when one thing dominates and there’s no competition. Like when XF dominated. The old days saw a mix of everything for example Christmas songs (Slade or Mud), huge regular hits like Human League or Queen or novelty records like Mr Blobby and Benny Hill.

I went with charity/novelty song, with standard Christmas song being a close second. I don’t see the issue with a charity song where it is usually one week that feels weird having a normal chart song at the top. Rockabye being an example already noted that does not feel like a Xmas number one at all.

New Christmas songs would also be great but not keen on the amazon exclusives where these songs are blowing up, but most people who don’t have an Amazon subscription will never have heard them before the chart. #1s should have some hype around them which River did not have.
