This Christmas tune is a fabulous showcase of what Paul is capable of- pure festive perfection. Granted, his vocals aren't amazing, but the lyrics and quality of the song more than make up for this. I suppose I like this song so much, because it featured in my favourite festive film- Rudolph The Red-Nosed Reindeer. Although, I suspect that the magical, mystical chimes would have attracted me even if I hadn't seen the film. Apart from the techno chimes, my favourite part is the choir bit- inspired! If this song doesn't get you in the Christmas mood, I don't know what will.

Even though Paul's vocals aren't perfect, I really wasn't sure if anyone else could pull this song off. Christmas songs seem to be a target for all Disney Princesses much to my dismay. Demi Lovato's version is painfully diabolical, and Hilary Duff's isn't much better- the backing vocals are actually laughable. The only half-decent cover I found is one from Family Force 5- it's fresh, and sounds live and acoustic. Although I don't like the Metro Station style talking over the track.
