Third place went to Chris Rea’s Driving Home for Christmas, closely followed by Bing Crosby’s White Christmas.
And Michael Bublé came in fifth with his 2011 version of It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas.
However, Mariah Carey’s Christmas classic All I Want for Christmas could only manage to number six on the top 10 list, with 39 percent of the vote.
Other songs that charted in the top 10 include Shakin’ Stevens’ Merry Christmas and Dean Martin’s festive songs Baby It’s Cold Outside and Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer.
Pringles commissioned the studio to release their first Christmas single, The Pringles Single, featuring vocals by Luna Morgenstern and a Welsh choir, marking the collision of Christmas and football this December.
The pop tune offers a rendition of the well-known Christmas carol, Carol of the Bells, with lyrics synonymous with football and holiday celebrations.
Aisling O’Hara of Pringles said: “This is no ordinary winter as we experience two of the biggest celebratory events in one season.
“Our first song highlights these moments, and we can’t wait to see fans lip-sync their fun on TikTok.”
The study also found that of those who celebrate Christmas, 30 percent listed singing Christmas songs as one of their favorite activities over the festive period, while 58 percent simply enjoyed listening to Christmas tunes.
But there is a limit, since 37 percent admit that they feel annoyed if they listen to festive music before December 1.
And one in three (32 percent) admit they stop listening to the songs as soon as Christmas Day is over, though a festive 14 percent keep them going into the new year.
