Open now! Vote in Mushroom Fm's 2017 holiday countdown, and get an invitation to our Christmas party

The holidays are all about traditions and rituals. Turkey, mistletoe, Santa, and enjoying Mushroom FM's famous holiday Countdown and Christmas Party. Yes, Hark! Hark and be merry! It's back.

After you have your all-important say, our elves will be making a list, checking it twice, and presenting a 10-hour extravaganza of the top 100 holiday songs as determined by our listeners.

There's only one song in the history of the countdown to have made it to number one twice. Not only twice, but in consecutive years too! Will "Dominic the Donkey" hee haw his way to number one yet again?

The holidays are hectic, so mark the date in your calendar now. Sunday 17th December 2016 - from 9 am Eastern, (that's 2 pm in the UK).

When you head over to Mushroom FM Countdown Headquarters at,
you'll be able to cast votes for your top 10 holiday songs of all time. People's preferences change from year-to-year, so if you've voted in previous years, just feel free to rank those songs that seem special to you at the moment. Be assured that absolutely every vote counts, as long as you vote before votes close at midnight Eastern time on Friday, 16 December. The choices you make will be entered into our database, and an algorithm will tabulate the data collected from all voters to arrive at the most popular 100 songs.

Having a brain fade? We’ve got you covered, if you don’t want to write your top 10 down, choose from our popular list of holiday favourites. All the songs people voted for last year are in the list for this year, so voting is as easy as choosing from a selection of combo boxes.

As you know, Mushroom FM's speciality is bringing you music from the magic decades of the 50s through to the 80s. But when it comes to our holiday countdown, you're not constrained by any decade or genre. So whether it it's something from 1717 or 2017, you're welcome to vote for it.

When you vote and provide us with a valid email address, you'll be sent an invitation to the Mushroom FM Christmas party, which takes place while we play the top 100 songs on Mushroom FM. You'll be assigned a seat at one of our Christmas tables at the party. Before the big day, we'll publish a seating chart, so you can see who you're sitting with. Maybe you might like to make a special effort to chat with your table-mates via social media. Santa's elves will be awarding Christmas crackers to the tables of those who enter into the Christmas spirit. Will you help to get your table to the top of the score board?

It’s true what they say, no one parties quite like Mushroom FM, and we’re in the mood for another fun and festive one. The holidays get busy, so don’t delay, get your voting done now and reserve a seat at the party.
