As we reflect on another fantastic year here at Mackman, and as Christmas draws ever closer, what better opportunity is there to share with you some of our favourite festive songs?


James Royce – Technical & Operations Director

The Pogues – Fairytale of New York

“My current fave has got to be ‘Fairytale of New York’ (what’s not to like about a drunken Christmas song!)”

Bruce Burgoyne – Creative Director

Bobby Helms – Jingle Bell Rock

Angela Balaam – Studio Manager & Senior Graphic Designer

Santa Claus is Coming to Town – Elf Soundtrack

“My favourite always stays the same – this film is a classic and one of my favourites.”

Jim Carr – Digital Manager

Chris De Burgh – A Spaceman Came Travelling

“Purely because it’s quite hard to find a Christmas song that has the nerd appeal of involving an alien.”

Soph Simmonds – Web Developer


Suzanne Smith – Senior Graphic Designer

The Beach Boys – Little Saint Nick

“The Pogues is my favourite, but this is a close second – I love The Beach Boys!”

Kerrie Scott – Graphic Designer

Otis Redding – White Christmas

 Kelly Thake – Junior Graphic Designer

Chris Rhea – Driving Home for Christmas

“I love this one! I used to listen to it as I drove home from Uni in Norwich every year.”

Kerry Knight – Communications Officer

Coca-Cola – Holidays are Coming

“So it’s technically not a Christmas song, but it’s only officially Christmas when I hear this.”

Roisin Ryan-Self – Communications Junior

Wizzard – I wish it could be Christmas Everyday

“This reminds me of putting up the decorations with my family, blasting it full volume!”
