Overrated Christmas Melodies

As I'm about to call it a night and mentally prepare for the 3.5 hour trip up North tomorrow (hoping Alex keeps his crying to a minimum), I thought I would throw out a topic for conversation.  What Christmas song(s) do you just find too annoying and overrated when the holidays come along each year?  I would like to nominate my least favorite Xmas song, "Jingle Bell Rock".  I hear this monstrosity all the time when December rolls around.  I hate the melody, I hate how it tries to be hip and upbeat and I really hate the lyrics.  What in bloody hell is a Jingle Horse?  I think my wife's family tries to play it on purpose when we visit just to bug me.  

Does anyone else have that one holiday song that they think is overplayed and annoying?

how bout feliz navidad...why do they sing in spanish and then switch to english. it would be like me typing english here...

la cucaracha la cucaracha
Ya no puede caminar

makes no sense right? multi language songs never work and always the non bilungual audience never has a chance to comprehend the full meaning of the song

plus until Snoop does a holiday song it's all crap to me
