Xmas 93 is a Christmas-themed single released by Saint Etienne. Released by Heavenly Records in December 1993, the lead track "I Was Born On Christmas Day" features guest vocals from The Charlatans singer Tim Burgess.

The song's title is a nod to band member Bob Stanley who was born on 25 December 1964. The music video for the hit was filmed in the vicinity of Kensington and Chelsea Register Office in London.

The main b-side, "My Christmas Prayer" is a cover of the Billy Fury original. The two bonus b-sides, "Snowplough" and "Peterloo" are both instrumentals.
