It’s be­gin­ning to look a lot like Christmas – or so the songs say around this time of year. And for many, there’s only one way to mu­si­cally cel­e­brate the Christmas pe­riod – es­pe­cially if you’re a mother-in-law – and that’s with Michael Bu­ble.

For­get your Slades, your Feliz Navi­dads, your Christmas Bells – the crooner is in­escapable at the fes­tive pe­riod.

That’s largely due to the fact his Christmas al­bum is usu­ally that im­pulse buy by the check­out when you’ve panic-bought a

hi­lar­i­ous tea towel that you think your wife will be amused by but then have buyer’s re­gret and the shops are closed.

I love the fact that Bu­ble puts out the same al­bum ev­ery year, with just one ex­tra track added for his fans to buy it again, keep­ing some in au­ral mis­ery for eter­nity.

But Ihave a bet­ter idea for the end­less pa­rade of Christmas Bu­ble CDs, make them the cen­tre­piece of your fes­tive ta­ble – they make great coast­ers for your drinks.
