For "maximally annoying", I will see your Little Drummer Boy, and raise you the Trans-Siberian Orchestra version of Carol of the Bells. Sadly, I used to like that one, until it became mandatory to hear it 5,000 times every year in December.

If you don't know WTF I am talking about, it's this bullshit. I am sure you will recognize it.

Painful Christmas Music is a thread in and of itself.

Let us not forget "Mary's Boy Child."

How will that play today? Why highlight an artificial construct such as gender on an innocent child?

I feel triggered.

Indeed. Not "War on Christmas" at all.

Would go well in "Other music"

Stop playing the Thread Police™, one could think you have lost your sense of humor.

I didn't bring ditties into the thread! :x

And terrible things, yes:



If that isn't War on Christmas, I don't know what is.

It's the sort of song I would like once (especailly as a child) but if repeated over and over in every store ... {shudder}

Yeah, I liked the music. But I was hoping they were going to end with "Now let's go attack the Chinese!"

More winter in general than Xmas specifically, but this seems to belong here...

If I never hear that Mariah Carey Christmas song or the Wham one again, it will be too soon.

Bob Rivers doesn't get enough credit as a song parodist. He also sings another of my favorite Xmas songs

THis was taken in Virginia City, a town near me. I just like the juxtaposition of the Christmassy feel and the name of the saloon...
