      I HATE them!!!!  I'm one of those people who get melodies stuck in my head and they can stay there 24/7 for WEEKS! have you ever listened to Little Drummer Boy for 5 days straight? Waking up at night with it still there.  Sometimes I go back to another store just to  get the old song out of my head with a new one.
       The real christmas carols are not so bad, Oh Come all Ye Faithful and such,  but Jingle Bells and such "classics" like "It's Christmas, I Want Everything", or perhaps my least favorite "Last Christmas I Gave You my Heart-the Very Next Day You Gave it Away".   Absolutely horrid songs any time of the  year, but because there are only so many Christmas songs, they are played over and over getting more airtime than the Kardashians.
       I generally get all of my shopping done before Thanksgiving except for online, but you have to go to the grocery store and there it is.
       I'd love to be wealthy enough to go to a non-Christian nation for the whole three months till the annual frenzied insanity has finally died with a whimper sometime in February.

      Last year, I was at a local bike and ski shop trying to buy some gifts for family members, and the music switched from some non-descript pop music to Christmas carols. I wasn't the only shopper who had a sudden "WTF?" reaction, and it must have caught the attention of one of the workers. He said "You don't like the carols?" I said,"no, I've had it with carols!" He said "Oh, could you possibly say something to our manager? He seems to think playing this music will encourage buyers, but most of us hate it."

      "Sure!", I said, and I mentioned it to the person pointed out as the manager, and within a minute or two, it was back to the pop music... and a bunch of grinning employees and customers.

      Another freekin' Christmas miracle ;-)

      Those who do not understand history are condemned to repeat it... in summer school.
