"When Christmas Comes Around" is the debut single by English singer Matt Terry. The song was written by Ed Sheeran and was released as the winner's single of thirteenth series of The X Factor on 11 December 2016. All the record company profits from Terry's single will be shared equally between two charities: Together for Short Lives and Shooting Star CHASE. It is the sixth year running that UK's Chancellor of the Exchequer has waived VAT on The X Factor's winner's single.
On 16 December 2016, the song debuted at number 31 on the Irish Singles Chart. The same day, it debuted at number two on the Scottish Singles Chart and number three on the UK Singles Chart. The song, however, was the most downloaded and top selling single throughout the five-days since the release in the UK with the lack of streams and three-days-disadvantage (the chart starts counting sales and streams on Friday, but this song was released on Sunday night) influencing the overall chart position to be lower.
