Between Christmas preparations, sick kids and knitting, I have had little time to post. It’s Christmas eve night, I am listening to the rain pour down on the roof and wondering if I can finish just one more Christmas knitting project. Doubtful, but fortunately, the family is cool with IOUs.

In light of the fact that I am still working on Christmas knitting, I am going to share with you a post from last year that you might enjoy. Hope you will forgive me for the rerun. I think my feelings are still about the same for all these songs. My current favorite Christmas album is Andrea Bocelli – My Christmas. Give it a listen if you haven’t.

Wishing you a Merry Christmas.

Christmas Music
originally published 23 Dec 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.

Next post. Christmas Knitting.

    I could add quite a few to this list, because every year my aunty gives me a Christmas cd put together by a charity (Salvos? Can’t remember.) and the cds are getting more annoying each year. They used to be good, now it’s a game to see how long it is before I snap and turn it off. However, there’s an Australian Christmas song that definitely belongs in your list- Six White Boomers.

    Going to have to google Six White Boomers. I might have a new favorite for next year’s list.
