The Most-Hated Christmas Songs of All Time [VIDEO]

This may be the smallest, most random survey ever. And yet it’s hard to imagine anyone arguing with the results.

A writer at something called the Middle East-North Africa Financial Network (???) wanted to find the most-hated Christmas songs.

Anyway, according to the few dozen Middle East, North African finance enthusiasts who responded, the worst holiday songs are:

#1.) “Grandma Got Run Over By a Reindeer” by Elmo and Patsy Trigg Shropshire, 1979: It also won the last time they conducted the survey, in 2004.

#2.) “Jingle Bells” by Jingle Dogs, 1995: You know this song. It’s the one where the dogs bark the tune.

#3.) “I Want a Hippopotamus for Christmas” by Gayla Peevey, 1953: This song was nearly forgotten, until the all-Christmas-music stations dug it up to fill air time.

#4.) “The 12 Days of Christmas” by multiple artists over the last 200 years: It was described as the holiday version of “99 Bottles of Beer on the Wall”.

Although, Allan Sherman’s version is actually pretty funny:

#5.) TIE between “Dominick the Donkey” by Lou Monte:

#5.) TIE “I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus” by Jimmy Boyd:
