Today I am thrilled to be a part of Emma Hannigan's blog tour for the release of her brand new festive themed novel Driving Home For Christmas! The book has been released by Headline, and I started it last night, it's already a brilliant read! Emma was kind enough to write me an article for the blog tour about her favourite Christmas songs, one of my favourite things about Christmas I have to say, let me know if you agree with Emma's choices in the comments! Look out for an amazing competition coming shortly too!

You can buy Driving Home For Christmas as a paperback or an eBook now!

Emma Hannigan's Christmas Song Favourites!

5. Fairytale of New York - Kirsty Mac Coll & The Pogues
I know many people feel this song is over played at Christmas but I love it. It’s a wonderful mix of traditional Irish music with a little touch of Christmas magic.

4. Stay Another Day - East 17
East 17 were probably the ultimate bad boys at one point when I was growing up. So it was pleasantly surprising when they came up with this rather tender and heartfelt song.

3. All I want for Christmas is you - Mariah Carey
This song makes me happy! It’s fun and frivolous and I love the message that people are what really matter at this time of year.

2. Last Christmas – Wham
I idolized Wham as a teen. I was in George’s camp rather than Andrew’s! But this song in particular tugs at my heartstrings every time I hear it. At sixteen I lost my best friend in a car crash. This was ‘our’ song. No matter how many times I hear it or how many years have gone by it always reminds me of her!

1. Driving Home for Christmas - Chris Rea (of course)
I adore the story this song creates. It was the inspiration for my book and I can’t imagine any one disliking the image it evokes!

Thanks so much, Emma!

  1. Fairy Tale of New York is my mum's favourite so I always think of her when I hear it! Brilliant song! I love Baby It's Cold Outside - Tom Jones and Cerys Matthews...but maybe that's just because I'm Welsh haha!
