There’s good and there is bad Christmas music, but eventually it all just becomes obnoxious after you get a good round of songs.  Classic Christmas music is enjoyable; it is something I could listen to on repeat when the holiday season is here, but it when you get into the Disney Channel styled Christmas music, or the remakes of the classics that it’s just not bearable to listen to, but one time.  As an employee at Five Below having Christmas music play on a loop for my five hour shifts or longer, I can say not even school has taught me how to block out some type of noise so well, but still be aware of what’s happening around me.  Don’t get me wrong; if we had some good choir carols playing, you might see me jamming out, but that’s simply not the case.

 

Some examples of carols that belong in stores to play are Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer, Frosty the Snowman, Dashing through the Snow, even Jingle Bells.  The tune of the classics is music to my ears, literally.  I’m sure everyone remembers Justin Bieber’s renditions of Christmas classics, or even his own Christmas songs, but much before he hit puberty and his voice had matured. Well, imagine listening to Justin Bieber’s Mistletoe on repeat a couple hundred times.  Justin isn’t the only Disney channel star whose music gets its long-awaited time to shine from the previous years’ holiday season. Oh no, Five Below employees and customers also get to enjoy music by Bella Thorne, Bridget Mendler, Ross Lynch, and whoever else you can imagine.

 

While I might be miserable listening to throwback Disney channel holiday music, the one thing that keeps me going is seeing the little kids in the store dancing and singing to the music. It makes it really hard to hate something when you see little kids enjoying it.  Plus, I enjoy my paycheck very much, so tuning the music out and focusing on the customers is the way to go.  Maybe eventually I will come to enjoy some of the Christmas music I loathe, but for now I beg Five Below to bring in some classics.
