LONDON, Dec. 25 (UPI) -- Britain's Channel 4 has dubbed the original Band Aid hit "Do They Know It's Christmas?" the favorite TV Christmas Moment of all time, Sky News reported.

The song, which raised hundreds of millions of dollars for famine relief in 1984, topped Channel 4's list on "The 100 Greatest Christmas Moments."

Channel 4 asked voters to pick the best Christmas TV moment from a selection of Christmas movies, songs, TV specials and annual fixtures.

Raymond Briggs' cartoon "The Snowman" came in third.

Also in the top ten were last year's "The Office Christmas Special" and Frank Capra's "It's a Wonderful Life."
