Grinchy Thoughts

Christmas Carols I would be happy to never, ever hear again:
(and it's only been a few days!)

Grandma Got Run Over by a Reindeer
The Little Drummer Boy
Do You Hear What I Hear?
That song about buying Mama the new shoes so she can meet Jesus tonight - the worst song ever written.

I never mind hearing O Little Town Of Bethlehem and Silent Night. Those songs always fill me with Christmas Spirit.
But if I hear Last Christmas by Wham a few more times, someone somewhere will be getting a lump of coal.
What are your favorite and least favorite holiday songs? Here is your chance to vent.

I'm with you on that! My current rant is that the kids want to watch the same Christmas movies over and over again so that I am sick of them before Christmas gets here! They are banned this year until right before Christmas so I can watch and enjoy them, too.

I must confess...I have stopped participating in Christmas at all. When I do enter a store and hear that music, I am slightly confused for a moment.

I still love the traditional Christmas songs ... but not so early in the year... wouldn't it be lovely to reserve them for until Xmas eve and day.

Little Drummer Boy makes me nauseous--at least I get one laugh from Grandma...Reindeer. Xmas music at the gasoline stations in Nov. makes me cringe. Such a lovely time of year--so much poor taste.

Ditto your comments on that stupid Grandma and the reindeer! Fortunately, I haven't heard the one about Mama and the new shoes, or Wham's song . . .I'd probably agree with you about them as well. As much as I love Paul McCartney, I can't abide his "Wonderful Christmastime" song (or whatever it's called). Two of my favorite tunes (neither of which I've heard this season) are the Boston Pops version of "Sleigh Ride" and Karen Carpenter's "Merry Christmas Darling." I also love Mariah Carey's original version of "All I Want for Christmas is You."
