I don't hate it in the same way as ''All I Want For Christmas is You''. I just find the tune of it very depressing, and it brings depressing thoughts to my mind like loneliness, loss, sorrow, tragedy, et cetera. I don't hate the song itself. Also it makes me feel sad because of what happened to Kirsty MacColl.

I have no 'worst' Christmas songs, but two of my faves are "Hark! The Herald Angels Sing" and "Winter Wonderland".
