None of the poll choices really fit. I love some more than others, but I don't dislike any.

Spike Jonze Xmas Spectacular is my all-time favorite. But I don't dislike other Christmas music.

I don't really like the traditional stuff but I like some of the oddball stuff, Dropkick Murphys with The Season's Upon Us, The Pogues with Fairytale of New York, Mental as Anything with Apocalypso (Wiping the Smile Off Santas Face) and even the Royal Guardsmen with Snoopys Christmas.

ETA: I forgot Slade with Merry Xmas Everybody.

Religious Christmas music is fine for its liturgical/devotional purposes but I can't stand secular Christmas music for the most part. I don't care about Frosty, Rudolph or your grandma getting run over by a reindeer.

I can tolerate Christmas music for awhile, especially if it's secular Christmas songs I like. However, I usually cringe whenever I hear Christmas music in early November, which is several days before Thanksgiving.

I'll admit to always liking this one, though:

Getting bored of The Pogues one now, I have to say. Still not bored of Slade yet though, and I was at school when that came out, nearly half a century ago. Noddy Holder, what a guy.

My mum and my auntie used to sing On The Blue Blue Ridged Mountains of Virginia together every Christmas, after dinner and a skinful. So I love that one, not sure if it is strictly a Christmas song though tbh.
