They usually play something around Xmas time.

I was really hoping for I Believe in Father Christmas....

Did they put an Xmas tree ontop of the 360 claw like they did for Seattle Popmart show on Dec 12th 1997?

No they don't.

Christmas (Baby, Please Come Home) on 20 December 1987 and White Christmas on 16 December 1989 are the only examples of U2 performing a Christmas song at a full tour gig.

Otherwise, Bono just throws around snippets, like he did in Perth.

Christmas (Baby, Please Come Home) would have been fun, but hardly expected. I think the set yesterday was a good set to end the leg on, with kind of a Christmas-y mood anyway.

I'd love to be at a December show where they busted out with Christmas (Baby Please Come Home).

If they're going to do some sort of Christmas thing, I'd prefer they do that rather than snippetry of carols or something.

I'd be disappointed if there was no snippetry of Christmas songs. It's fun, no reason for people to get bitchy about fun.

I prefer a U2 song to some corny Christmas song.

I'm surprised at how controversial snippetry has become around these parts lately.
