Much like that certain type of alcohol you can never drink again because of that one night you went overboard with it, Christmas music tends to leave a bad taste in people's mouths. Every retail worker is ready to pull their ears off theirs heads by mid November due to the same overplayed mall jingles on loop, it was my personal hell once upon a time ago.
