Although you might not agree with it, and you may even despise it, Fairytale Of New York has been voted as the greatest Christmas song after a day of tight voting.

The World Cup Of Christmas Songs, as voted for by Twitter users, came down to a grand finale between the Pogues' hit and Wham's Last Christmas, with Fairytale winning by a margin of just 2%.

Since Thursday of this week, voting has taken place with possible contenders such as Mariah Carey's All I Want For Christmas (Is You), Paul McCartney's Simply Having A Wonderful Christmas Time, and Chris Rea's Driving Home For Christmas losing out to the two contenders.

The correct winner? This.
