My UN-favorite Christmas Song

Some of you have been listening to Christmas tunes since last Spring. Believe it or not, I do love Christmas, but you and I can't be friends. Why? Because you can't admit the obvious. The obvious is this: after logging in hours of Christmas music listening time, there is at least one song you don't enjoy hearing over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over again.

Today you get your chance. You can confess your UN-favorite Christmas song here.

I have one you know. Every holiday season I wait for it. Anxiety builds until the moment I hear the very first bars. I could name this tune in one note. And when I hear it, it's like fake nails on a chalkboard. I'm immediately launched up the nearest wall.

Feliz Navidad is the winner of my UN-favorite song of the Christmas season.

Yep, that would be the one. Feliz Navidad. To me, it's the most overplayed tune in December. I want to pull my hair out and run screaming out of the store, car, or anywhere else I am in earshot of a radio when I hear this holiday-doody, ahem, I mean ditty.

Seven. It's the number of times this month I've had to listen to it. I keep count of Feliz Navidad each Christmas, just like I keep count of how many BBQ cheeseburgers I eat each summer. Miraculously, it's the only song since birth I catch from the very beginning each and every time I turn my radio dial.

And, since my kids absolutely LOVE it, each and every time it's the longest three minutes of my life.

What's your Feliz Navidad?

Mine is the Christmas Shoes song. Whenever I hear it, I change the station!

I'm not sure. I haven't been listening to much Christmas music yet. Except for Noel CD by Josh Groban, but I love that.

I'm on the lookout now though.

HUGS for a precious friend

Mine is 'Grandma Got Run Over By A Reindeer'... I LOATHE this song!! Just writing this is going to make it run through my mind for at least a good hour. This is truly a song that promotes insanity for adults! :D

Hmm, I'll need to think about this one for a while before I answer. I think there are two that are pretty close to both ranking the worst Christmas songs ever. When I figure it out I'll be back.

I'm going to go listen to some Christmas music and get back to you!

I think I'd have to agree with you Sweetie on that one. Love you.

I don't care for Feliz Navidad either, but the one song that will get my hands to turn the station the fastest is "Christmas Time is Here" from the Charlie Brown Christmas Special.

Not sure sweetie, love you.

I gag at "Santa Baby"...seems like there is always at least one store that has it playing while I am shopping....

I said I would be back but I didn't know it would take me this long! A snowstorm hit, our power went out, and I had been unable to use anything electric for three days. While I sat in the candle light thinking about how I couldn't listen to Christmas music with no electricity, I remembered this post and made a decision. The song I could live the rest of my life without is "Here Comes Santa Claus." The reason I chose this song is because it seems to want to bump Christ right off the throne of Christmas and replace him with a jolly fat guy in a red suit.
