“Merry Christmas Everyone” is a festive song by Welsh singer-songwriter Shakin’ Stevens. Written by Bob Heatlie and produced by Dave Edmunds, it was the fourth number one single from Shakin’ Stevens on the UK Singles Chart.
It was released on 25 November 1985 and was the Christmas number one for that year. Ever since it has been included on many top-selling Christmas collections and received frequent airplay every Christmas. In 2007, the song re-entered the UK top 30 and reached number 22 on the Christmas chart. This was because downloads now make up the UK Singles Chart; in past years this would have been impossible unless there was a physical re-release of the song. From 2007 to 2016, the song charted in the UK at peak positions 22, 36, 49, 47, and 42, 46, 54, 38, 26. The song also matched its download 2007 era peak of 22 in the 2016 Christmas chart.
