The 10 Christmas Songs People Look Forward to Most . . . and the 10 They Wish Would Go Away

Here are the Top 10 Holiday Songs People Look Forward to Hearing:

1. “Silent Night”

2. “White Christmas”

3. “Jingle Bells”

4. “O Holy Night”

5. “Little Drummer Boy”

6. “The Christmas Song”

7. “Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer”

8. “All I Want for Christmas Is You”

9. “Grandma Got Run Over By a Reindeer” (???)

10. “Santa Claus Is Coming to Town”

In the same survey last year, “Winter Wonderland”, “Carol of the Bells” and “Silver Bells” made the Top 10. This year, they were replaced by “Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer”, “All I Want for Christmas Is You”, and “Santa Claus Is Coming to Town”.
Not surprisingly, there was some overlap between the LOVE and HATE lists.

Here are the Top 10 Holiday Songs People Wish Would Go Away:

1. “Jingle Bells”

2. “Grandma Got Run Over By a Reindeer”

3. “Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer”

4. “The Twelve Days of Christmas”

5. “White Christmas”

6. “Silent Night”

7. “Jingle Bell Rock”

8. “We Wish You a Merry Christmas”

9. “Frosty the Snowman”

10. “Alvin and the Chipmunks’ ‘The Chipmunk Song (Christmas Don’t Be Late)’”

“Little Drummer Boy” and “Feliz Navidad” made the Top 10 in last year’s survey. They were replaced by “Frosty the Snowman” and “The Chipmunk Song” this year.

(These responses were all “unprompted,” which means that the people surveyed were not choosing among pre-selected options.)
