I don’t want to hear Jingle Bell Rock , The Little Drummer Boy, Jingle Bells, Grandma Got Run Over By A Reindeer, Frosty the Snowman, or Santa Baby (puke!). If I hear these kinds of songs on the radio I will change the station immediately, but unfortunately, they’re EVERYWHERE. Bleh.
I don’t hate all Christmas music though. I love traditional, religious carols like these. It’s not necessarily because I’m religious either. Even when I was a near-atheist, I still preferred them to secular Christmas ditties. Call me stodgy and old fashioned (or snobbish), but it’s just much better music. In my opinion.
These boys sing like angels.
I also really like Good King Wenceslas. You don’t hear it a lot anymore. It’s a traditional English carol about a good king who gives to the poor, so I think it’s definitely in the right spirit for the season.
