Is there a worse Christmas song?
Many Christmas songs are poignant. "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas," for instance, especially when sung by Judy Garland, is extremely affecting. "White Christmas" would make hardened sergeants cry when Bing Crosby sang it at USO shows during the war. "I'll Be Home for Christmas" is touching.
"Syrupy and emotionally manipulative crap" is not the same as "poignancy," idiots. No one wants to feel guilty at Christmas just because some jackass wrote a stupid song.
And it almost never rhymes! It's not just the content that's rubbish.
I do love shoes, but if I were dying, I'm damn sure I wouldn't want my child to sacrifice his dignity in doggerel that doesn't even have a meter.
