It's that time of year again, the time when I can't shop or even go for a walk without hideous music of the most meretricious kind assaulting my ears.  I do not mind seeing Christmas crap all over the place, but who really and truly wants to hear another version of "Frosty and Snowman"?  I heard it three times in one afternoon and caught myself singing it at the laundromat.  They got me singing "Frosty the Snowman"!  It's insidious, all these Christmas ear-worms.  Why, in the name of all the gods, did the Glee kids do a version of that stupid Wham Christmas song?  And why does anyone play that Paul McCartney Christmas song, the one that goes "SIM-PLY-HAV-ING-A-WON-DER-FUL Christmas time".  Look kids, Daddy got a synthesizer for Christmas!  Sir Paul wrote that song under the influence of a malign demon who wanted to drive mall employees to workplace violence.  You cannot convince me otherwise.

As you see, this is a rant.  I just wanted to get my frustrations out.

Bright Blessings all, and may your never hear "I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Clause" ever again.

I kid you not, they were already playing holiday tunes in the stores on November 25th.  I was in the grocery store being killed with Mariah Carey's tunes.  I can't stand it.  I can't wait for this season to be over.  Christmas Crap, Holiday Tunes, Retail Marketing and mobs of people in every store like it's the end of the world!

Some Pagans do too......I like the hustle and bustle and people,but that's just me...Cant talk David into going to the Mall for nothing,well ,leaving him at Baileys Sports Bar maybe

LOL, My husband is the same way! No way no how will he allow me to pull teeth on this one! 

Thankfully, I am self employed... I choose to hide out in my house for the month of December for just that reason... hehehe

I couldn't agree more.  Christmas carols make me want to break things.  Especially "Wonderful Christmastime".

Fair enough.  I didn't realize that there might be a distinction to be made between the two.

Excellent rant! Made me laugh.

 Muahaha! I heard it before Halloween   LOL!  I do not even notice the stuff lol why cuz i hearing imapried so it has , to be loud for me ot hear it! I love the music as long a s they do not play the same crap  over and over.

I find your ranting perfectly legit. Personally I have a special hatred for the little drummer boy, which makes me a little panicked entering stores this time of the year. I can't believe how early they start the songs these days too! I can tolerate it in December, but seriously, November too now?

I love Christmas music! I love that the shopping centers play it and sometimes have choirs. Here in Australia due to certain other religions they are watering down Christmas. Schools call it happy holidays and aren't allowed to sing Christmas carols.
If I worked in a shop maybe it would drive me mad but for our family Bruce Springsteen belting out merry Christmas baby is great!
"I can't understand sometimes why people hate it lol"

Well let's see here....maybe (just maybe)....

Some people have different tastes in music. That's just speculation though.

I'll Be Home for Xmas"......makes me sad.I think of the military folk
