Most Annoying Christmas Carol

Wed Dec 25, 2002 4:33 am

Which Xmas carol sets your nerves on edge?

For me, "The Twelve Days of Christmas" is like chewing aluminum foil. The song takes an hour, everybody starts forgetting what the present is by the tenth day, but they ALWAYS remember the "Five Gooooooooooold Rings!"

Plus, the ASPCA would be SUPER pissed at that present list,

I really can't stand "Santa Baby".. I would rather get sucked into a 777 engine then listen to that one more time.. Man..

Also, what annoys me is when radio staions that USUALLY are good play 1-2 days of NOTHING BUT X-MAS!!! AAAAARGH!!

At least you don't live in Cleveland. Last year, from the day after Thanksgiving until the day after Christmas Day, they played nothing but Christmas music (everything from traditional songs to the more modern Christmas rock songs).

People obviously didn't approve of it, so this year they decided to have all Christmas music in streaming audio format on their website, and to only play a few songs a day that are Christmas-like.

Every last xmas song should be banned under an international treaty and all recordings burned for eternity.

I, on the other hand, HATE radio stations that can't be bothered to play Xmas songs.

KCLE, its not just Cleveland. Here in Phoenix, from the day after thanksgiving until chirstmas day they play NON-STOP CHRISTMAS SONGS!! The main thing that gets me going is the fact that they play a total of about 7 different songs. Each one of those songs has 80 different people to choose from singing it.

So if you had listened to 99.9 KEZ yesterday for 30 minutes, you would have heard "Frosty The Snowman" approximatly 7 times, sung by a different music/televison personality each freaking time.

Thank goodness its over.

Good call on "Feed the World" by USA for Africa. That bit of celebrity hubris is best shredded.

There is a story behind the 12 days of Christmas, that made me appreciate it a lot more. i used to HATE it. but now it has taken on a new meaning:

From 1558-1829, Roman Catholics in England were not permitted to practice their faith openly. During that era, this carol was written as a catechism song for young Catholics. It has two levels of meaning: the surface meaning plus a hidden message known only to members of their church. Each element in the carol has a code word for a religious reality which the children could remember.

The partridge in a pear tree Jesus Christ

Two Turtle Doves the Old and New Testaments

Three French hens faith, hope, love

Four calling birds the four gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John

Five golden rings the torah or Law, the first 5 books of the Old Testament

Six geese a-laying the six days of creation

Seven swans a-swimming the sevenfold gifts of the Holy Spirit-- Prophecy, Serving, Teaching, Exhortation, Contribution, Leadership, and Mercy

Eight maids a-milking the eight beatitudes
Nine ladies dancing 9 fruits of the Holy Spirit-- Love, Joy, Peace, Patience, Kindness, Goodness, Faithfulness, Gentleness, and Self Control

Ten lords a-leaping the 10 Commandments

Eleven pipers piping the 11 faithful disciples

Twelve drummers drumming the 12 points of the Apostle's Creed
