It Doesn't Often Snow At Christmas by The Pet Shop Boys.

What I really like about this Christmas song are the lyrics. Unlike most of the songs around in December, it tells it like it is, rather than how it is portrayed as being. There are probably more family arguments over the Christmas period than at any other time of the year. It also takes a jab at the consumerism that has come to mean so much.

At the same time, the bouncy beat keeps the bleakness of the words from being too depressing. And if you watch the linked video, you have dancing Christmas trees too.
