Not all Christmas songs are equal. That's very important to remember.
Edison Media Research and Pinnacle Media Worldwide found that people still prefer the classics when it comes to their favorite yuletide tunes.
Each survey found "White Christmas" by Bing Crosby, "The Christmas Song" by Nat King Cole, and "A Holly, Jolly Christmas" by Burl Ives at the top of the list of favorites.
There's nothing like a nice Christmas song on a cold night by the fire. Throw in a hot rum and your sweetheart and what could be better?
Nothing to ruin such a magical moment.
Except for one thing...
The AWFUL Christmas songs.
These surveys reassured me that I am not the only Grinch when it comes to some of the overplayed and annoying variations of songs.
People tend to dislike "Grandma Got Run Over By A Reindeer" by Elmo & Patsy and "Santa Claus Is Coming to Town" by Bruce Springsteen.
The top most hated Christmas song? "Jingle Bells" by those annoying Singing Dogs.
As for MY most hated Christmas song?
"Feliz Navidad" by Jose Feliciano!!
It's endlessly annoying AND bilingual! What a great combination! Let's make Spencer cringe in TWO languages!
Now if you'll excuse me, I need to finish my eggnog before my Sinatra Christmas CD ends.
