Creepy Christmas Carols

By Paul Yeager, author of Literally, the Best Language Book Ever and Weather Whys: Facts, Myths, and Oddities

I don’t know if you’ve noticed, but we here at Everything Language and Grammar tend to think that we’re too obsessed with Christmas and that too many of us forget that Christmas isn’t celebrated by everyone (last year’s public service announcement).

It doesn’t mean that we don’t enjoy parts of the Christmas season, such as the annual cavalcade of Christmas shows.

The music, though, can be so grating. It’s difficult for non-stop music of any type to not be repetitive, but it’s especially so since there are only about 30 Christmas songs——–and most are sung in such an over-the-top way that they sound so sad and whiny. I mean, seriously, has any version of Dreaming of a White Christmas not brought tears to your eyes–in a bad way.

Well, we’re not the only ones who aren’t fond of Christmas songs. Here’s a Gawker post highlighting Creepy Christmas Carols for a Less Cheerful Holiday.
