Christmas music is adored by many. For me, on the other hand, I hate it. Although it is exciting to get in the spirit of the holidays, it is rather annoying to hear songs like “Jingle Bell Rock” a million times. I know retail employees can back me up on this.
Now, before anyone gets confused, no, I do not hate Christmas; I love it. I love looking at the lights, eating Christmas cookies and putting up stockings as much as anyone else does. I just hate the music.
That includes Michael Bublé’s famous Christmas album. “Holly Jolly Christmas” does not make me feel holly nor jolly. People like me might hate Christmas music because it is played on the radio, in malls and other places directly after Halloween or Thanksgiving. Hobby Lobby for example is ready for Christmas even before Halloween starts. Personally, I just like to wait until the turkey is eaten before getting excited over Christmas. That way, Christmas will feel more magical, and less forced.
Out of all the music there is only one song I really do enjoy every year. Even though I know this is controversial to say, Mariah Carey’s “All I Want for Christmas” is hands down the best Christmas song ever.
So, all I want for Christmas this year, is for everyone to not care what people like and to just enjoy what makes them happy. Even if it means playing a horrible song like “Up on the House-top.” Happy holidays.
