I am the one that ruins your holiday spirit (at work).

I don't want to listen to Christmas music (it's not even Thanksgiving yet, so triple that sentiment) at work.


I know people like to spout the 'it's a secular holiday' line at me...except, it's not. There are parts that are more secular than others, and definitely parts that are ingrained in our culture. And hey, I love the hell out of the light shows. But when you are caroling about the baby Jesus...that ain't secular.

But at work, I don't want to hear holiday music. Ever.

Some of it is retail-based flashbacks. I remember the year we got TWO different CDs we could (rather *had* to) play OVER AND OVER AGAIN FOR THREE MONTHS. It was only marginally better than a single CD.

I just don't want to be bombarded with Jesus for 8+ hours a day. Is that such a terrible thing?

Edited to add: OH MY GOD, I have found my holiday spirit. I want to shit in Frosty's head (and for the best price possible)!


  1. No, it's not. I dread this season. I work in a public institution there are Christmas decorations, etc. EVERYWHERE!

    I don't want to say anything, because then people will accuse me of trying to prevent them from participating in their holiday, and make a whole political thing over it.

    Occasionally I hear of a protest (in general, not at my place of work) and I hold my breath until I find out who is protesting. Thank G-d for the atheists.

  2. I mean, in general, if some wishes me a Merry Christmas, I roll with it.

    But I shouldn't have to at work. If people didn't work overtime putting their business in my face, I wouldn't have to be St Grinchtopher!
