I'm one of those people who kind of loves holiday music. Around this time of the year, I'm guilty of swapping my Pandora stations to play Christmas songs and I've even purchased entire holiday albums (hi, 2000 Christina Aguilera album "My Kind of Christmas").
I don't cringe when I hear holiday songs in the stores (even if it is before Thanksgiving) and I won't turn the radio off no matter how many times I've heard that particular song.
Except when it comes to five of them. I present to you my list of the five absolute worst holiday and Christmas songs of all time.
#5: "Grandma Got Run over by a Reindeer"
So I don't actually hate this song. I even understand the appeal of it for kids. In fact, I actually thought this song was hilarious when I was little. But as an adult, it's certainly not my favorite holiday song. If I never heard it again, I'd be fine with that.
We hope everyone has a fantastic day celebrating with loved ones. See you tomorrow!
If there's one good thing about the winter season, it's the holidays. Once Halloween is over, we can all officially start thinking about the upcoming winter holidays. It's time to get festive.
For some, it may feel a little too early to get in the holiday spirit. But that's why we're here! First, there's the festive new look throughout our site. The snowflakes! The Santa scroll! The holly berries!
We've also compiled a complete guide to this 2013 holiday season's live events. Not only can it help you get into the holiday spirit, but it can also help to determine which holiday shows or games are a "must see" in the coming weeks.
Our holiday events guide includes:
- Hand selected top holiday events
- 10 holiday events in sports, concerts, and theater
- Pretty graphics (very important)
- A link to a specialized sports, concert, or theater page with an even more expansive list of winter events
Check it out and start decking the halls with us! Next up: singing holiday carols door to door. That's still a thing, right?
There seems to be a strange holiday for each day of the year. The month of November, for example, is Adopt A Senior Pet Month; Banana Pudding Lovers Month; International Drum (Percussion) Month; National Inspirational Role Models Month; National Family Literacy Month; National Novel Writing Month; National Peanut Butter Lovers Month; and Beard Month (AKA No Shave November AKA NoSHAVEmber).
Meanwhile, today alone is Cliche Day, Give Someone a Dollar Today Day, National Housewife Day, and National Sandwich Day. Why? Well, there isn't a real reason why, aside from the fact that humans like to celebrate. So if you're looking for some fun holidays to celebrate throughout November, check out these 15:
- November 4, 2013 is National Candy Day.
