Christmas Music

December 23, 2008

The thing that I am most happy about this Christmas season is that soon radio stations and stores everywhere will stop playing Christmas music. I would be quite happy if Christmas music were limited to the week before Christmas. There are some songs that are particularly irritation. My kids and I have come up with a list of the most annoying songs of the season.

Top 10 Most Annoying Christmas Songs

  • 10. I saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus (particularly the Michael Jackson version)
  • 9. I Want a Hippopotamus for Christmas (this one happens to be my hubby’s favorite which is probably why the kids hate it.)
  • 8. All I Want for Christmas is My Two Front Teeth (the whistling version is worst)
  • 7. Twelve Days of Christmas. There are only so many types of poultry that should be put in a single song. This goes double for any of the variations like the Redneck version, the Canadian version, etc.
  • 6. Christmas Shoes. I don’t particularly like tear jerker songs but this one is just too sappy. What else could go wrong for this poor kid – he gets struck by lightning on the way to the hospital with the shoes. Seriously, the only kid with worse luck is Harry Potter.
  • 5. Do they Know It’s Christmas, Happy Christmas (War is Over) or any Christmas song with a political agenda. Save the politics for the other 364 days of the year, please.
  • 4. Jingle Bells – Barking Dogs version. Root canal is more pleasant
  • 3. Little Drummer Boy – especially the version by the Vienna Boys Choir
  • 2. Grandma Got Run Over by a Reindeer Grandmothers everywhere should boycott the advertisers for every radio station that plays it.
  • 1. My Favorite Things – Because it’s NOT EVEN a Christmas Song

Any Christmas song sung my Madonna should also be included in this group. Hope you have enjoyed our little countdown.

    I agree with most of them, but I’d keep “The Little Drummer Boy” and add “The Gift” by Aselin Debison (the kid can’t carry a tune to save her life) to the number 1 most annoying Christmas song. I run to turn off the radio whenever it comes on!
