At work the other day I had the aux-cord and since it is December we were in the festive mood. I tried to find some Christmas music on Apple Music. Guess what I couldn't. I was starting to get pissed, I thought I broke by phone or something because I couldn't find anything. I have a 5S #LikeApoor so I figured something was wrong on my end.
If you type in "Christmas Music" this is what comes up.
Now I get it we live in PC America where you're considered a bigot for saying "Merry Christmas" when like 80% of the country also celebrates Christmas. This isn't about that.
This rant is about how stupid eliminating the term "Christmas" from obvious Christmas things is. At least when you're saying "Happy Holidays" it actually makes sense because there are a bunch this time of year and that just puts everything under an umbrella. It works. It's easy. If you wanna call your work Christmas party a Holiday Party, be my guest. I don't really have an issue with that, you don't wanna bring religion into the workplace. Totally cool by me. But you wouldn't call a Menorah a "Holiday Candle" would you? No, because that's not what it is, its a Menorah.
If calling something by what it truly is offends you, I'm sorry but you're in the wrong. It's like when people say they don't see color. You're just trying to sound enlightened when really you're the one being ignorant. People of all races, genders, backgrounds, whatever you want to use are different, and guess what thats okay. We shouldn't be afraid of that, we should celebrate people's differences and stop getting so fucking worried about pissing some cry babies off. It's okay to acknowledge the fact that not everybody is the same. Same thing with Christmas music. There is no such thing as "holiday music" because there's like two songs about Hanukkah. "Dreidel, Dreidel, Dreidel" and "The Hanukkah Song". If you wanna get mad, get mad at other religions for not having hundreds of fire songs about their holidays. I think you need to make up more than 10 minutes of music to change the entire title of a genre.
Can we please just use some logic for one second? Let's not act like calling Christmas Music "Christmas Music" is offensive. It's not. Christmas music is Christmas music. It's not holiday music, that's not even a thing. Christmas has prettttty, pretttty big monopoly on the "holiday music" market. I did some extended research and by that I mean I just kept skipping songs to see what came up on "holiday radio" and what I found was pretty interesting.
It really hurt to skip over Wonderful Christmastime, but I'm here to do a job.
That sure is a lot of Christmas Music for Holiday Hits. Can we please just use our brains and say it's okay to call Christmas Music what it is? I'm not even mad as a low-key God guy I'm mad as a human with a brain. Don't piss on my leg and tell me it's raining.
