The non-religious “holiday songs” that are forced upon everyone at this time of year are just this side of water-torture. When sung by a chorus of 5-year-olds, they probably cross that line. If I hear “Rocking around the Christmas Tree” again, I will run screaming into the street and throw myself under the first moving vehicle. Please go back to the tedious but unobtrusive elevator music.
