Yeah I'm pretty dense sometimes...haha I never realized it was about Mary (even though she's in the title of the song!) and, come to think of it, I dont ever remember hearing it played with the usual songs during christmas so..
I've never heard of Ave Maria during Christmas either. I also never knew it was about Mary then again I really didn't listen to the words so...
You know a lot of songs like that sound like they are in a different language (or maybe they really are and I'm just not paying attention!)
Mistletoe Thanks for clearing that up!
I have to add anything from Neil Diamond to this list...I cant stand his voice
Although I love Christmas, there's a lot of the songs of the season I dislike:( Some of them are:
Little drummer boy (the only version I can stand is the Josh Groban one)
12 days of Christmas (any version of this song makes me want to rip my ears off)
There are some horrible danish ones, as well. Most noticeably "Julesang" by Gnags and "Soeren Banjomus" by Otto Brandenburg. Funnily enough, both songs are about mice at Christmas time. I hope none of you ever has to endure the horror of these two numbers;)
