What circle of hell is that?
I am a Christmas-hater. I hate the freaked out people in the stores, I hate the massive message of consumption, I hate the gaudy displays, I hate hate hate my kids learning to expect they'll get some more crap. I like poinsettias a lot I guess. But what I hate most is the music, from every radio and every store audio system: it's pretty much the worst in the whole Western canon (except We Three Kings, which is OK.) And I just want to make the statement somewhere: there needs to be a special Day of Infamy for whatever sick, twisted bastard wrote Jingle Bell Rock.
