Reader Dan sends along a song about the War on Christmas.
So now it’s time for one of my favorite topics: which holiday season song do you hate the most? I agree that objectively, the Paul McCartney “Simply Having A Wonderful Christmas” song is the worst, but I’m not hearing it much yet, so I don’t hate it the most right now. I want to specify that holiday season song includes anything that is played only this time of year, so it includes Frosty The Snowman, The
Dradle Dreidel song (both of of which I like), and the holiday season song I dislike the most right now….that Peanuts holiday song that goes doo-doo-doo, doo-doo-doo-doo, doo-doo-doo doo-doo, I don’t know what they’re saying. I’m not trying to be contrarian here, that song bugs me.
I guess I’ve never understood Peanuts. It may go over my head, like Wilco and Italo Calvino apparently do, but I don’t understand why a comic about kids should be so melancholy. I mean, they’ll have plenty of time to be depressed and neurotic when they grow up and realize how crappy everything is, right?
Runner up for most annoying holiday season song: “I Know That This Will Be A Very Special Christmas For Me”.
What are your most hated holiday season songs?
