04:49 pm: "How to make gravy" Paul Kelly
Probably my favourite Christmas song is "How to Make Gravy" by Paul Kelly. This version is a mashup of different live Paul Kelly versions.

TBH, my absolute favourite version is an acoustic one by James Reyne which has another plus: original lyrics. Kelly wrote the song so he can alter the lyrics however he likes but I still think:

"I hear Mary's got a new boyfriend, I hope he can hold his own
Do you remember the last one? What was his name again?
(Just a little too much cologne)"

is superior to:

"I hear Mary's got a new boyfriend, I hope he can hold his own
Do you remember the last one? What was his name again?
(What was his problem? He never did get Nina Simone)"

This is the James Reyne version:

Wherever you are, I wish you a wonderful Christmas.
