Behind the door on Day 13 is a fun night of singing and dancing with your friends!

We all love a good sing-along and, as we mentioned on Thursday, singing is good for the soul, as is spending time with your chums. So this weekend, why not combine the two? Invite some friends over for a Christmas karaoke night and you’ll soon be feeling festively jolly.

Why not put on a delicious spread to treat your guests? You could use yesterday’s mince pie recipe. You could even raise some money for our social isolation appeal by asking friends to donate to come along or give a small donation per song. By doing so, you’ll be helping us to prevent loneliness and isolation among the people we support: guaranteed feel-good factor all round!

To help you out with your song choices, we’ve rounded up our 10 favourite Christmas songs to sing along to.

The Christmas Song – Nat King Cole

Starting with a classic – the smooth tones of Nat King Cole setting the Christmas scene. 



All I Want for Christmas - Mariah Carey

A firm favourite that everyone knows the words to. There’s nothing more important than your loved ones at Christmas! 



Last Christmas - Wham!

You’ll get everyone singing and bopping their head to this 80s Christmas anthem! 



Merry Christmas Everybody - Slade

Tap your toes and belt your Christmas wishes out to all your friends.

Christmas Time (Don’t Let the Bells End) – The Darkness

A slightly less obvious choice but a fun one at that!



I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus –Jackson 5

A fun Motown version of this classic – good luck with those high notes!
