Merry Xmas Everybody – Slade

Australian charts:
Merry Xmas Everybody entered the Kent charts on 12 December 1973 and peaked at #55.

Ultimate Classic Rock:
Slade released “Merry Xmas Everybody” on 7 December 1973.
It is an exuberant song that starts off with fantastical visions of a corker of a holiday (“It’s the time when every Santa has a ball / Does he ride a red-nosed reindeer? / Does a turn upon his sleigh? / Do the fairies keep him sober for a day?”) and leads into families having a blast and pondering all the festive fun they’ll have.
