Fact or Fiction

Christmas Songs

Share this post

It's a time of randy Santas and flattened grandmas, reindeer stuck in traffic and destitute children who may not even know it's Christmas. However, if you've been to a mall, or anywhere near a radio, you know that holiday music is in full swing, and every year the Christmas playlist seems to grow longer than your shopping list.

So, while Santa is busy separating naughty from nice, see if you can separate fact from fiction...
