Offensive Christmas Songs!

"Decent people in general" need to stop singing several holiday songs.  The Twelve Days of Christmas is just so capitalistic.  Way overboard on the gift-giving.  Or that song about Grandma getting run over by reindeer.  (Grandpa probably was in on the hit.)  Link

While we're at it, we need to stop singing about Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer.  It's ableist despite the happy ending.  Songs about Santa Claus also glorify obesity, and our nation has enough troubles with that.  Most of all, though, we need to cut out all Christmas songs that have anything to do with Jesus.  It might make people of other religions feel left out. 

I'm being snarky here, but I'm still not sure if the article is serious...

  2. I love Christmas Carols and plan to ignore anyone who tells me I can't listen to them or sing along.
    They're only songs after all, and there are much worse songs out there. Next thing, they'll be banning Christmas.

  3. You forgot "Walkin' Round in Women's Underwear." The radio guys play it all the time here.
