They say that there are the most suicides at the Christmas holiday time. They say it's due to lonelyness and depresion...but ya know what? It's due to the f-ing christmas music!!!!!! You can't escape the ****! It's all over the tv, the radio. You take a step into a shopping complex and they are playing it over the loud speakers, you go to a store, same thing!!! AHHHH!!!!!!!!!!

I'm sitting at work right now and we can't turn down, off, change the station, or shoot the speakers..........I CAN'T TAKE ANOTHER MOMENT OF CHESTNUTS ROASTING OVER AND OPEN FIRE!!!!!!

Amen! I cant stand listening to it when I'm shopping. I cant imagine having to listen to it all day long. Do yourself a favor and lock up all your guns and knives until after the 1st of the year.

It's not Christmas music. It's non denominational winter solstice celebration music.

I worked in radio through the 80's and 90's. If I ever, EVER hear Grandma Got Runover by a Reindeer again...

Every fifteen f^*%ing minutes some snot-nosed brat would call and request it. Half the time they weren't even listening, because they'd call just MINUTES after it was played.

It was funny the first EIGHT MILLION times I heard it. But after that WEEK it wasn't funny anymore!!!

Another reason I do very little shopping from Halloween to Boxing Day.

Boxing day? Ya mean black friday? ;-)

Or wait... they don't box, they just trample walmart employees.

I'm just glad I live in a smallish town. Big enough that ya can get everything, small enough that the christmas crowds aren't insane. Multiple years of retail have trained me to ignore christmas music, but I remember feeling homicidal back then...

It really should be illegal to play winter solstice non denominational music on any day but christmas... Even then...
