    Least favorite Christmas song

    Good morning, CNetters!

    Hey, I was shopping at Walmart yesterday and they were playing Christmas music already. Those who know me, know I prefer to get through one holiday at at time and in sequential order. So, hearing the music wasn't "music to my ears". LOL.


    This leads me to today's topic. There a lot of Christmas songs I really like, such as Silver Bells because my Great Grandma would sing that to me when I was little. She passed away and I miss her. Every time I hear that song, I think of her and actually get a bit choked up.

    Question for today to make it a big tougher:

    What is your least favorite Christmas song?


    My absolute least favorite Christmas song is "I Want a Hippopotamus for Christmas". I don't like the lyrics, the vocals or the music. Ugh. I turn the station any time that song comes on the radio.


    How about you? What's your least favorite Christmas song?



    Have a great day and good luck to everyone in this week's election.

    Hey Jon,

    I'm similar to you in that I prefer getting through one holiday at a time. I will not turn on Christmas music, or put up Christmas/winter decorations until after Thanksgiving. That's one battle my husband and I have every year...when to put up the Christmas tree. He wanted to put it up this past weekend...that was vetoed real quick! As for hearing Christmas music, I don't mind hearing it in early-mid November, but I will not actively put it on or leave the radio on a station that's playing a song. If I hear it in a store though, I just smile and sing along.

    I'm not sure that I have a least favorite Christmas song. There are too many favorites to list, that's for sure though. My mom's has 2 least favorites, which I enjoy them both! The first is Two Step Around the Christmas the Tree. I'm not really sure why she doesn't like it, but my sister and I always make sure to play it when we're all together making Christmas cookies every year!

    The other she really dislikes is Christmas Shoes. I love that song, and think the meaning of it is beautiful, yet sad. She doesn't like it because it makes her think of my Gramma, her mom, who's no longer with us. She cries every time she hears it.

    Today is really getting me in the holiday spirit because it's snowing and it's the pretty kind of snow! Only a week and a half until Christmas & Christmas music takes over!

    My least favorite Christmas song is "Grandma got ran over by a Reindeer". The lyrics are annoying to me. The vocals sound like someone is whining.

    Re: Least favorite Christmas song

    Hey Jon,

    My least favorite Christmas song is Santa Baby by Madonna. It’s crawls under my skin! I also don’t like I want a hippopotamus for Christmas either lol!

    Beth, my mom cry’s when she hears Christmas shoes, just like your mom does! It’s a very sad, but touching song.

    Hey, Sagine, I think Grandma got runover by a Reindeer is really stupid too, but at the same time kind of funny!


    Have a great day everyone!

    What's my least favorite Christmas song? How can I pick just one!?!

    I have to admit I really hate Christmas songs, Christmas commercials, Christmas movies, and I also really hate the repetitiveness of Christmas music. It seems lie when I go from shop to shop the stores all have the EXACT SAME SONGS playing in the exact same order! With centuries of Christmas songs to choose from, why repeat the same songs over and over?

    Something else I find really annoying is the "new" Christmas songs that com out by pop stars every year. Often the songs and music are terrible, the artists know they are terrible,, and the albums are just being produced because the artist has agreed to a contract that says they have to produce content. I hate songs that are created just to be songs, without any attention paid to artistry.

    It's funny that you asked this question because I just saw this article that says early Christmas music is bad for your health;)

    Laaaast Christmas I gave you my heart!

    And the very next day, you gave it away!

    Every time I hear that song, my whole body cringes! And sadly, it's my best friends favorite song, so I am doomed. Forever.

    Re: Least favorite Christmas song

    Hey Jon,

    Great question for the season of overly-early Christmas cheer haha! I'd say my least favorite is "All I want for Christmas" by Mariah Carey. It's just very jarring to me.

    Have a good one!
