The results of our 2014 Carol Countdown are in, and there are some surprises.

While the top three remained unchanged from last year's poll, a few carols grew in popularity.

"Still, Still, Still" finished in The top 10 for the first time since 2009. "In the Bleak Midwinter" surged to No. 7 and "The Wexford Carol" made its strongest showing ever, at No. 14.
