Posted:I don't mind choir type carols, or even the 'normal' style ones on stores' radios. The ones that annoy me are the crappy remixes, that seem to be gaining popularity.

Posted:oh yeah! me too, whsmith it was as well.... they have a knack of doing it annoyingly.... you usually get repeats of the same ones throughout the day over five days a week from october onwards.... grrrrrr.... then when, christmas was over it was bloody westlife!! whoever has the job of making playlists for whsmith, i want it, i will make it good... and i will make sure nothing repeats itself...... and i won't play christmas songs! (except maybe in the summer.... just to be irritating...)

i find carollers annoying but that's because we only ever get the one song.... "we wish you a merry christmas.... we're collecting money for the uh... uh... um... us... no! we mean it's for charidee....." "oh yeah, which one?" cue: *stunned silence* umm

Posted:i despise them. this is entirely due to my school causing many young children to sings carols / hymns sayin "i love you lord jesus". i personall y see this as too major, and forcing a religion upon people who are too young to have a viewpoint, or understand what they are actually singing.

my two cents.

cheers, pete

Posted:Last christmas I had to do a prefect christmas carol concert at the church near the school.
My freinds put up a rebellion by putting their feet up on the pues and swearing as loud as they could in front of the vicar during rehearsals...
I found that discusting, and they got all pissy with me for telling them off, claiming that "Jesus would blow his *expletive* nut off at me for talking down to people in the *expletive* church*
I don't speak to them much anymore...

But I do like carol concerts in churches, when you don't have silly 15 years olds pretending to pray to god asking if he has a big willy..
