Karen, I think that would be great. A Christmas song every third or fourth song until the week before would spread them out a little.

DatMama, that's great! LOL!

Lisa, isn't it funny that Feliz Navidad is one of the ones I like? Working retail at Christmas is a HUGE challenge for Christmas spirit, now that it seems to start in, like, October!

I can't hear Feliz Navidad without thinking of a photo we found online last year -- it was a very large sign in front of an office building that said "FOR LEASE" and someone had spray painted "Navidad" underneath it.

OMG the one I really can not bear to hear is Feliz Navidad. When I met my husband 35 years ago we both worked in retail. By the time Christmas got around you were so sick of everything Christmas

hahaha this is such a funny topic! i actually think last christmas by wham is one of the more bearable ones.
i hate all the songs sang by children. I don't know what it is, but it makes me shudder. for example: i saw mommy kissing santa clause and there is this other one where a little kid sings at maximum volume for the entire song. i always imagine the kid getting red, redder and then purple faced towards the end of the song.

I can NOT stand "Last Christmas" -- by that group, WHAM, from years ago.

Why is it a Christmas song? It's depressing! It just happens to have the word "Christmas" in it, and now it's played all over the place during this time of year. Aren't Christmas songs supposed to be joyful?

*grinding my teeth at the thought of now having it stuck in my head*

Ogmama, I loved it when I was a kid, but now it drives me crazy!

I associate Santa Baby with my daughter ice skating when she was 7--that was the number her age group skated to in the big show. She LOATHED it!

I've been listening to the Holiday Pops station on Sirius, which is lots of classical-influenced holiday music. I'm enjoying that.

Even though I stay out malls, the grocery store plays it, my son's doctor was playing it, dollar tree was playing it, the apartment office was playing it. So I am still inundated with christmas music whether I like it or not.

Ohhh... I love Little Drummer Boy!
One I can't stand is Santa Baby
One I remember from when I was a kid and loved, but never hear is the Snoopy and the Red Barron song.

TRAVLNWOMAN, maybe it helps that I stay out of malls and don't watch commercials, so I don't notice the commercialization as much.

I pretty much hate Christmas music but I think carol of the bells is nerve wracking. Actually it is pretty sad that it has come to hating the music which is really beautiful in many instances. If it weren't for the extreme commercialization of the season I don't think I would mind it so much.

"I Want a Hippopotamus For Christmas" Do they play this song anywhere besides Oklahoma? I had never heard it until I moved here. I swear, they play it 50 times a day!!

I agree that when I hear it before Thanksgiving, I have a visceral hatred of whoever is in charge of programming it!

I enjoy christmas music, but for me, it starts too early. Mix it in with other music, so I don't get so tired of it by Christmas that I want to scream or throw myself off the nearest bridge.

I am mostly a fan of Christmas music. I'm the crazy lady who's grapevining down the grocery store aisle to Jingle Bell Rock. I don't even mind all Twelve Days of Christmas. But there is one song that absolutely puts my teeth on edge:

The Little Drummer Boy

I shudder even thinking about it!

So, this has nothing to do with biking, but I am curious what you ladies think. Does holiday music drive you batty in general? Do you love it all? Or are you like me, with only one or two songs that make you want to run screaming from the mall?
