I got bored from the same Christmas' songs every year. When do we have the current Christmas' single in top 40 ?
I just had a look through Jay's excellent threads collecting the Top 200 entries each Christmas time.
Last year we had this... we 24 December 2016 3 Matt Terry – When Christmas comes around
In 2014, there was of course this... 23rd November 2014 #01 Band Aid 30 - Do They Know It's Christmas?
2013, we got THREE new songs, two you'll remember 22nd December 2013 #3 Leona Lewis - One More Sleep #21 The Big Reunion Cast 2013 - I Wish It Could Be Christmas Everyday #30 Kelly Clarkson - Underneath The Tree

I'd say "new" songs means new songs not cover versions, so yes to Leona and Kelly Clarkson etc. but not several of the others on that list.
I'll have to make you lot a playlist of many of the Christmas hits from my chart the last few years. Well I already have such a playlist. But I can make a youtube one. You can all sit down for... christmas telly.

Yeah a few, I don't even know the Matt Terry song so I wouldn't know if it were new. The Coldplay one is on my regular playlist.
Still I'll make a nice youtube Christmas playlist which covers the last few years. I think I made one for 2015 that covered just that year, and my 2014 playlist at the end of the year had a lot of Christmas songs on it but wasn't a Christmas playlist.
Of course all the various HXT contests have loads of Christmas songs on them.
