What Is the Worst Christmas Song of All Time?

Whether you love them or absolutely can't stand how they get stuck in your head, this time of year, short of locking yourself in an underground bunker, it's pretty much impossible to escape hearing your fair share of Christmas music. And while some of these carols are quite pleasant, many are annoyingly catchy or just downright awful.

According to Jezebel readers, "The Christmas Shoes," is the worst Christmas tune of all time. The song, by Christian vocal group NewSong, was such a hit that it was turned into a novel, by Donna VanLiere, and a made-for-TV movie, broadcast on CBS in December 2002. However, while the carol may have some die-hard fans, many are turned off by its incredibly sappy storyline.

“The Christmas Shoes” is certainly not one of our holiday favorites, but we’re not sure it deserves the title of “Worst Christmas Song of All Time.” What do you think SodaHeads? Did they get it right? Or, is there a worse offender?

As for us, we would be happy if we never hear the endless refrains of “The Twelve Days of Christmas” ever again. Because really, why would anyone want all of those birds for Christmas?

    I'm not a big fan of most of the Christmas carols, and Santa Claus is Coming to Town used to make me wonder whether he worked for the CIA or something. I like the 12 Days of Christmas parodies. (The 12 Pains of Christmas, 12 Days - Bob & Doug McKenzie version)
  • synful90 Bunk11 2011/12/26 14:30:23
    i love the 12 pains of xmas!

    There are many, many, many insipid, treacly, nauseating Christmas songs, but the one I loathe more than any other is The Little Drummer Boy.

    As a drummer and a father, I can assure you that no newborn infant enjoys a drum solo.
