One in six Australian customers agree to tolerating carols at shopping centers as worst part of Christmas shopping, according to a new survey.
It also found which were the most hated songs to play in the background while they shop.
Mariah Carey's All I Want For Christmas topped the survey followed by Santa Baby, I Saw Mummy Kissing Santa Claus and Away in a Manger.
"Christmas shopping is supposed to be fun and festive... (But) we've discovered several carols that drive people crazy," news.com.au quoted Virgin Mobile marketing director David Scribner as telling the Herald Sun.
Jingle Bell Rock and Santa Claus is Coming to Town also featured prominently on the list of hated songs.
