Twitter has voted Fairytale of New York the winner of the World Cup of Christmas songs

It’s a worthy winner indeed.

IT WAS A long and hard battle, but Fairytale of New York has come up trumps on Twitter’s World Cup of Christmas songs.

It was up against Last Christmas, and breezed past the finish line at 51 percent.


Television host Richard Osman ran the World Cup since Thursday, slowly eliminating 32 tunes such as All I Want For Christmas Is You and Driving Home for Christmas over a series of too-close-to-call polls.

Betfair took bets on the outcome and are donating all losing bets to charity

I think we can all agree we finally have a worthy winner.
