Advent Calendar #20: Nat King Cole – ‘Chestnuts Roasting On An Open Fire’

Holding up the philosophy that Christmas music should not only be festive, but diverse, Impact has compiled a list of 25 ‘Christmas songs’ to take you through advent. Including not only songs which are indisputably part of the Christmas canon, but also straying into areas of music which holds looser links to the season. Starting with the tenuous and heading for the recognised classics, look no further for your advent soundtrack.

Christmas is becoming all too close, you’re beginning to feel suitably festive, and perhaps a little excited. After a blur of visiting old friends in your hometown, you suddenly find yourself with little to do.

Yet Nat King Cole has the solution in his heart-warming yuletide croon. Why not roast some chestnuts, and get into the Christmas spirit? After all the revision can wait, but Christmas is just around the corner.
