Science! ‘Too Much Holiday Music’ is Bad for You

I missed this nooze when it came out in 2017 and was repeated in 2018. Gee, I wanted to keep things kind of upbeat this weekend, but–well, oh, boy!

According to a psychologist named Linda Blair (No! not that Linda Blair, from The Exorcist… but I’m just guessing), hearing too much “holiday music,” especially over a store’s sound system while you’re shopping, is just awful for the old coconut. It keeps you “from being able to focus on anything else,” sez the Scientist.

We are not told what it does to you the rest of the year, with non-“holiday music” coming at you over the intercom.

Note she stops short of mentioning Christmas. Like Christmas itself is bad for you. Why aren’t you listening to non-stop rap music, eh?

This deserves an answer, and I’ve got one.

P.S.–Please let us know if you go crazy from listening to too many Christmas hymns.
