Snoopy's Christmas 'worst Christmas song of all time'

Snoopy's Christmas is the worst Christmas song of all time, according to Herald readers.

Last week, we named our best and worst Christmas songs and called for your views on the issue.

Snoopy's Christmas was the overwhelming favourite for the worst song ever - though a handful of readers disagreed, naming it the best.

Grandma Got Run Over by a Reindeer and I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus also made repeat appearances on the least favourite list.

Opinion was divided over the best Christmas song of all time; Some opted for classic carols, while others named more obscure tracks as their favourite.

Lesser known suggestions included Winter Wonderland by Ozzy Osbourne and Jessica Simpson, The Greatest Gift of All by Dolly Parton and Kenny Rogers, Merry Xmas Everybody by Slade, Christmas in Hollies by Run DMC and Christmas in New Zealand by The Spinning Wig Hats.
