15 Christmas Songs, Ranked From Mildly Annoying to Truly Cringeworthy

For many, storing away the last piece of Thanksgiving turkey means it's finally time to break out the beloved holiday playlist and ring -- or, rather, sing -- in the holiday season. From now until December 26, the radio (as well as select family members) will be blasting the familiar fa la la la las and musings about white blankets of snow -- all alerting the kids that Santa will be coming to town soon. But, as much as I love a good Christmas carol, I have to admit that there are some holiday songs that the world could really just do without hearing more than once a season (for old times' sake, of course).


From annoying jingles that get stuck in your head to problematic, er, inappropriate song lyrics that make you question the spirit of the holiday, here are some of our least favorite yuletide tunes -- ranked from kinda annoying to you might wanna hit the skip button around the kids.
