“Excellent audio”, says the description of this video, and it’s just as well because the picture quality is pretty dire. Nonetheless, you HAVE TO WATCH THIS VIDEO because it’s AMAZING. Apparently this is the first promo video George made for any of his solo singles, and he puts as much earnest effort into it as he did into everything else, with dazzling, and ocasionally dazzlingly peculiar, results. Released in 1974 this is technically a new year song rather than a Christmas song, but it sounds Christmassy, which is partly because it manages to sound both glam rock-esque and Wall Of Sound-esque, and those are both Christmassy sounds.
I’m not going to tell you what my favourite bit is because the minute you see it, you’ll* know.
I had to work really hard to stop myself from writing “yule know” there, although on further examination I discover I appear to have done it anyway.

I give up. What is your favourite bit? I have to ask because I’ve never seen this before and every single bit of it is my favourite.
Every bit of it is my favourite too (and I have been singing it all week), but the bit I meant was where he is naked apart from furry boots and a guitar.
