Top Ten - Legal Ethics & Professional Responsibility - December 21, 2006

We post our final top ten of the year with a complete non-sequitur.  "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas" and "I'll Be Home for Christmas" are worth listening to just about any time or anySanta_2 place.  The most annoying Christmas song is "I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus."

I have to disagree. The most annoying Christmas song is Santa Baby. And, especially if sung by a child, All I Want For Christmas is My Two Front Teeth.

Good point about My Two Front Teeth, but I think everyone is forgetting the barking dogs' 'Jingle Bells,' which -- just as I said it -- is coursing through your brain and won't leave anytime soon.

It's a Holly Jolly Christmas, it's the best time of the year.

Since we are working collectively toward the most annoying top 10 Christmas hits (can you imagine the CD?), shouldn't Alvin and the Chipmunks' "Christmas Don't Be Late" be on the list?
