I know “hate” and “Christmas” probably shouldn’t be in the same sentence, so how about “despise”?
Anyway, I absolutely loathe “The Little Drummer Boy”.
I find it slow and tedious and pretentious and annoying.
Hearing it over and over again is the equivalent of putting hot pokers under my nails.
The only version I can tolerate is the duet between Bing Crosby and David Bowie, and that’s only because it’s so unbelievably bizarre that the weirdness makes it rather compelling.
The other Christmas ditty I want to go away for all time is “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas.”
It’s a brilliant tune, mind you, and Judy Garland sang the shit out of it, but it’s just so sad and poignant and depressing that instead of lifting a glass of eggnog by the end of it, you want to put shards of glass to your veins.
Every time that song comes on somewhere, I no longer believe in Santa Claus — or in the value of life itself.
Make it stop!
A Christmas song I can take??
“All I Want for Christmas Is You,” sung by Mariah Carey at her best.
Sure, it’s a bittersweet message, but the song is upbeat and fun!
And as long as we’re stuck with this freakin’ holiday every year, let’s make it FUN!!!
