Before the start I must to say : 1. I will not separate three versions of "Do They Know It's Christmas" 2. It's impossible for to me to rate instrumental tracks, so I exclude "Let's Have Another Party" (UK # 1 in 1954) from this ranking. 3. "Bohemian Rhapsody" was # 1 in 1975 and in 1991 together with "These Are The Days Of Our Lives", I will give the different positions for both songs. 4. I will not separate double singles from Beatles, Wings and Westlife.
Also I will add my favourites from UK Top 10 on every Christmas week.

Christmas week : # 4 (Sales chart) UK peak position : # 1 (1964 year)
Rangers FC used the song to sing about their striker Joe Garner with its fans trying to get it to Christmas number one in 2016. The song finished at # 4 in sales and at # 31 combined UK charts on Christmas week, but topped the Scottish Singles Chart.
Top 3 : * 1. Dave Clark Five - Glad All Over (UK # 4) 2. Matt Terry - When Christmas Comes Around (UK # 5) 3. Robbie Williams - Love My Life (UK # 10)
* - for my top 3 selections from streaming era I used UK sales chart.

Top 3 : 1. Racey - Lay Your Love On Me (UK # 6) 2. Sarah Brightman & Hot Gossip - I Lost My Heart To A Starship Trooper (UK # 7) 3. Barbra Streisand and Neil Diamond - You Don't Bring Me Flowers (UK # 5)
3/10 48. Johnny Mathis - When A Child Is Born (1976) 49. Justice Collective - He Ain't Heavy, He's My Brother (2012) 50. St Winifred’s School Choir – There’s No One Quite Like Grandma (1980) 51. Harry Belafonte - Mary's Boy Child (1957) 52. NHS Choir - A Bridge Over You (2015) 53. Emile Ford & The Checkmates - What Do You Want To Make Those Eyes At Me For (1959)
Lowest novelty song at # 50 and two charity cover versions of famous oldies. I don't like original "Bridge Over Troubled Water" too, Hollies' "He Ain't Heavy, He's My Brother" is much better than 2012 version.
