Why are most Christmas songs so depressing?
If you listen to the words of popular Christmas songs, there's a strong undercurrent of misery in the majority of them. I don't get why people like them so much really.

It reinforces the satanic brainwashing of the masses and encourages them to go spend spend spend when in reality it is a celebration of the birth of our King Jesus Christ

Re: Why are most Christmas songs so depressing?
These popular songs are based on the culture and social expectations surrounding the holiday season. The hymns and carols of Christmas are decidedly full of joy, peace, and hope because they are based on the original story.

If your alone at christmas, christmas energy is supposed to make you feel lonely for connection with others.

Thats why christmas music is like that.

It plays on the emotions you will feel at christmas

I don't know if everybody experiences this... but evidently you do Op.

I would say it's because you're not a Christian... Or you are in name only. So you see Christmas and the Caroles from the outside looking in.

"God, if I'm not Your child, then please make me into one".

"Jesus, the Christian Jesus... I don't really believe in You, or in Your deity. But if I'm incorrect, then I'm sorry. Please show me Who You Are... and how You should fit into my life".

Re: Why are most Christmas songs so depressing?
I mean songs like "John Lennon - So this is Christmas/Happy Xmas", "Greg Lake - I believe in Father Christmas", "Wham! - Last Christmas", these are the ones off the top of my head.

On second thoughts, maybe it's mainly the British songs that are depressing.

White Christmas is very sad

Because it's hooey, complicit corruption by religion to brainwash for control and endorphins.

Commerce and corporations decided it was an excellent wave to surf every year for profit.

Cooked up by religion? More like to dent the king. Birth of jesus was replaced with Santa claus. We warned to not love the things of this world and then they invent santa to bring you 'the things of this world' - cane work out if santa being an anagram of satan is coincidence of course. The resurrection of the king jesus christ is replaced with a magical bunny who brings you eggs. All saints day is turned into halloween and worshipping demons. Theyve completely inverted it and in one sick move, if you believe in jesus that like believing in the magical easter bunny. It's an attack on the truth, an inversion.

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 72549983






How about "I'll Be Home For Christmas" or "Scarlet Ribbons" or "My Buddy"? Or even "I'm Dreaming Of A White Christmas"?

Don't forget, many of these songs were written during Wartimes when so many husbands, fathers, fathers, and sons were suddenly gone and who knew if they were ever coming home again? Even a more cheerful song, like "Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy" has the line "But then his number came up, and he was gone with the Draft".
"I have come to the conclusion that all news should be treated like 9/11, assume it is a psyop with actors participating in a staged event complete with props, until proven otherwise, in which case assume whatever is being recorded, reported, televised, is distortions/lying by omission/outright lies, until proven otherwise." - Anonymous, 4-13-12
