Speaking to Record Mirror in , Lea revealed:. In those days it was all flower power and Sgt. Pepper and Nod had written this tune.
The verse was naff but then he came to the chorus and went 'Buy me a rocking chair to watch the world go by, buy me a looking glass, I'll look you in the eye' - very Sgt.
I don't use tape recorders, I just remember everything and if something's been written 10 or 15 years ago, it stays up there in my head. I never forgot that chorus, and I was in the shower in America somewhere thinking - Bob Dylan, Bob Dylan - and suddenly out came "are you hanging up the stocking on the wall" and I thought that'll go with that chorus Nod did in ' So I rang Nod and said what about doing a Christmas song and he said alright, so I played it to him and that was it.
After an evening out drinking, Holder worked through the night at his mother's house in Walsall to write the lyrics, which he completed in one draft.
We'd decided to write a Christmas song and I wanted to make it reflect a British family Christmas. Economically, the country was up the creek.
The miners had been on strike , along with the grave-diggers, the bakers and almost everybody else.
I think people wanted something to cheer them up — and so did I. That's why I came up with the line "Look to the future now, it's only just begun". Once I got the line, "Does your Granny always tell you that the old ones are the best", I knew I'd got a right cracker on my hands.
Holder presented his lyrics to Lea, and the pair played the song to Chandler on acoustic guitars. Slade then set off on a sell-out tour.
Ten weeks before the song was recorded, drummer Don Powell was injured in a car accident. His girlfriend Angela Morris was killed, and Powell remained in a coma for almost a week.
After his eventual recovery, he was able to join the band to record the song. In a interview with Record Mirror , Lea recalled of the song's recording:.
We said we needed an echoey room but in those days nobody went for this big, big sound that they're all into now. These engineers thought we were mad, they're going 'no man, you know the Eagles , a very tight sound, Hotel California and all that pinging out of the speakers at you.
I said what about the hallway downstairs and they went 'we can't use the hallway, there's all these businessmen walking through for the other offices'.
Anyway we ran lines down to the hallway and there we were in September singing 'so here it is merry Xmas' and we were totally unknown over there and people thought we were mad.
The first sequence is then repeated, with the final chorus sung four times. On the last rendition, Holder screams out "It's Christmas!
Before its release, "Merry Xmas Everybody" received about half a million advance orders. Polydor, Slade's record label, were forced to use their French pressing plant to keep up with the demand, and the song eventually went on to sell over one million copies,  becoming the Christmas number one of , beating another Christmas-themed song, " I Wish It Could Be Christmas Everyday " by Wizzard.
When it was used as a b-side, we didn't even know it was being used, it was chosen by the offices. We were in America recording the Christmas single, there was a rush to choose what to put on the back of it, and that track happened to be used.
In , the song was given its first 12" vinyl release. An extended remix version of the song was created by Lea and Peter Hammond for the release.
No promotional video was created for the single as the band focused on extensive TV work over the Christmas period instead. The band mimed the song on Pebble Mill at One in while promoting the band's final single " Universe ".
Upon release, Record Mirror stated: Holder and Lea, that well known tunesmith duo, here on a gentler, more melodic, less rumbustious, guaranteed number one than usual.
It is included on numerous Christmas-themed compilation albums and several of Slade's subsequent compilation albums. It can be heard playing in the background during five episodes of the British television programme Doctor Who: The song has also become the last song that Mark Radcliffe and Stuart Maconie play before Christmas on their BBC Radio 6 Music show and on a number of occasions Noddy Holder has been a guest on the show to introduce it.
Noddy Holder has referred to the song as his pension scheme, reflecting its continuing popularity and the royalties it generates.
