As Mark has mentioned, some carols have bad theology. Other Christmas songs go beyond this—they are simply annoying. The always-on-top-of-things Gawker released its list of 10 most annoying Christmas songs.

  • Grandma Got Ran Over by a Reindeer
  • I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus
  • Baby It’s Cold Outside
  • The Little Drummer Boy
  • Happy Christmas (War Is Over)
  • River
  • Do They Know It’s Christmas?
  • Last Christmas
  • The Christmas Shoes

The reasons Gawker gives for placing these songs in the annoying category are interesting, and some even hilarious. Go over and have a read, and even a chuckle.

Do you agree or disagree with the choices? What songs would you include in or exclude from this list?
