It's back! Mushroom Fm is again counting down the top 100 holiday songs as voted for by you

The holidays are all about traditions and rituals. Turkey, mistletoe, Santa and more. And we're proud that Mushroom FM has become part of a tradition that's now looked forward to by many. The Mushroom FM Holiday Countdown and Christmas party is back yet again for 2019, where we're making a list, checking it twice, and presenting a 10-hour extravaganza of the top 100 holiday songs as determined by our listeners.

Will 2018's number one Christmas song, "A Maori Christmas", reign supreme once again? Or will there be a new Christmas number one to knock Billy T. James off his perch?

The holidays are hectic, so mark the date in your calendar now. Sunday 22nd December 2019 - from 9 am Eastern, (that's 2 pm in the UK).

As ever, voting is simpler than spiking the eggnog. Just head over now to and cast your votes for your top 10 holiday songs. Since this is a countdown, 1 is your most favourite song. You can write in your list or choose from our list of songs that's bigger than Santa's belly.

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, 20 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.

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's something from 1819 or 2019, you're welcome to vote for it.

There are plenty of holiday countdowns out there. What makes ours special and memorable is the virtual Christmas party that goes along with 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?

This is already a wildly popular event, but we'd like to get as many people voting as possible, so feel free to share this with your friends and encourage them to vote. Voting is open now.
