A top 40s station played all day at the job I held in... I guess it was 2011? I hate almost every song from that year just because I had to hear it so often. >_<

I've grown to dislike top 40 music so much that if I hear someone mention a song title from an artist, I look it up online. If I see it on any top 40 charts, I instantly hate it.

That's right. I've gained the ability to hate a song long before I even listen to it a first time.

That is possibly the most pretentious thing I have ever heard.

I really dislike the holiday season, at least as I get older and more cynical. I mean last year alone I saw shops with christmas trees and decorations as soon as Halloween was done. That and now that Christmas itself is practically a swear word, I just have a hard time enjoying it. Perhaps having a kid or two will bring the joy back for me...maybe.

I don't really like Christmas cuz I suck at gifting people. Spending time with people over the holidays makes me feel guilty for all the time I don't spend with them for the rest of the year :\

I adore Christmas. It is probably my favorite holiday, next to Halloween. It has always been a time of the year where people I know feel obligated to act like they love everyone and just share tender moments that they wouldn't feel comfortable doing any other time of the year. It was also the only time of the year that my mother wasn't a bipolar crazy, and actually tried her best to be that perfect parent to me. It isn't about the gifts for me, but the feeling of warmth and compassion that pervades the country. Well, it does if you're not cynical about it...kwehehe!

I listen to Christmas music all year round for the nostalgia factor. People always call me out at work for singing them out loud when we are on-site with nothing to do. It's always cool though when people actually join in, usually cool chicks with cheery attitudes~♫

It seems every year they start setting up Christmas decorations and start playing holiday songs earlier and earlier.

I remember last year I saw some stores set them up before October even ended.

Yeah I've seen that too and I really don't like it. Okay that it's a bright and nice thing to look forward to when summer's fading and darkness creeps in, but still. They could at least wait until Halloween is over? Preferably until mid-november even. But oh no.

The joke is a little worn out, Drakow.

Omg though! Christmas music is great any time of the year imo! I refuse to delete Mariah's Christmas albums from my computer no matter what time of the year it is, because they're such fun to listen to!!!!! Besides, there is literally nothing wrong with All I Want For Christmas Is You. Nothing.

Christmas in particular is a high point of the year for a lot of major businesses. That's why they're always putting things out earlier and earlier each year.

Anyway, while we're in the topic of Christmas, how do you like to celebrate it, Dcc?
Do you have any family traditions?

It's the end of May, somebody please change the topic. ;-;

Yeah Christmas music overexposure always annoys me lol.

I always thank God whenever it's over. And yeah I have to go grocery shopping again today, currently 9:04am Sydney time right now. (And I'm meaning the one in Australia!)

I don't mind Christmas songs, but when they are played over and over again I want to shut it off if I can.

Wasn't even aware there was a non-Australian Sydney...

While we're on the subject of Christmas songs, this guy makes a case on how "Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer" illustrates the worst traits in humanity:

I don't like hearing Christmas songs over and over. I'm also a noob at changing topics.
Someone else?

I am an expert in maps, believe it or not. There also is a Sydney in the Canadian province of Nova Scotia. But don't get confused between locations!
