What are the worst Christmas songs of all time?

Glenn recently released his very first Christmas album, Believe Again, featuring nine world-class musicians of all different Christian faiths coming together to create and make music like you’ve never heard before. On radio this morning, Pat and Stu debated the best and worst Christmas songs – and, as you might expect, disagreements abounded.

The conversation started when Stu expressed his dislike of a Christmas classic: “Little Drummer Boy.” The song has enjoyed quite the resurgence this week, after a rendition by a cappella group Pentatonix went viral:

As Stu explained, the song is far too repetitive for his liking. Instead, he prefers the little known hit “I Want a Hippopotamus for Christmas.” Pat and Jeffy weren’t impressed.

“During the break, Stu played a little bit of the song he was talking about,” Pat said. “It's awful. I thought ‘Grandma Got Run Over by a Reindeer’ was bad. This is horrible.”

Check out the song in the clip below:

Pat proceeded to read a list of the 10 worst Christmas songs of all time as ranked by Slant Magazine. While neither “Little Drummer Boy” nor “I Want a Hippopotamus for Christmas” made the list, Slant did dig up some truly terrible songs.

10. “I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus” – Jimmy Boyd

9. “Dominick the Donkey” – Lou Monte

8. “Same Old Lang Syne” – Dan Fogelberg

7. “Cherry Cherry Christmas” – Neil Diamond

6. “Christmas Conga” – Cyndi Lauper

5. “Funky, Funky Xmas” – New Kids on the Block

4. “Boys and Girls (Xmas Time Love” – The Cheeky Girls

3.”Merry Christmas with Love” – Clay Aiken

2. “Please, Daddy (Don’t Get Drunk This Country)” – John Denver

1. “The Christmas Shoes” – NewSong

“And I hate ‘Santa Baby’ by Madonna or anybody who does it. Awful. Awful,” Pat added. “‘Santa Claus is Coming To Town’ by Bruce Springsteen that everybody plays 150,000 times during Christmas season. I hate it. And it's the only one they play… And I don't know what the fascination is with every top 40 station playing that in the world.”

“You are not a huge fan of the Santa-type songs,” Stu observed. “Sometimes you connect with certain songs, and that's certainly natural. Obviously, I connected closely with the ‘I Want a Hippopotamus for Christmas,’ which is, you know, a big time Christmas classic.”

…that no one has ever heard of.

There are new curriculum standards being implemented into schools throughout the nation for health classes that not only go far beyond what's appropriate for young children, but are entrenched in clear political biases, too. Under the standards, third-graders are taught about hormone blockers and endless gender identities, and topics get shockingly graphic for kids as young as 11. Some schools are even teaching their teachers and kids to ignore what parents have to say about these topics. And the worst part may be that many parents are completely unaware what their children are being taught.

Tina Descovich, co-founder of Moms for Liberty, joined "The Glenn Beck Program" to explain exactly what you can ask at your next school board meeting to ensure this "horrifying" curriculum isn't being taught in your kid's school.

It should come as no surprise that a newsworthy story receives more media coverage when released on a Monday than a Friday. The reason is in part due to a large number of news-consuming Americans checking out for the week to focus on their weekend plans rather than the news.

On Monday's radio program, Glenn Beck shared information that President Joe Biden decided to release on Friday — when fewer people would notice — regarding the Climate Finance report. This report is marketed to Americans as "A Roadmap To Build a Climate-Resilient Economy." But Glenn believes the report to be Biden's Great Reset warning shot to banks.

In this clip, Glenn warned that if Americans don't stand together, in eight years we all indeed will own nothing. Watch the clip for the full story. Can't watch? Download the podcast here.

On today's radio program, Glenn Beck was joined by Bill O'Reilly to discuss the top stories of the week.

For O'Reilly, the biggest story this week centered around someone mysteriously missing from mainstream media news reports today: Mark Zuckerberg. Specifically, O'Reilly said it's the 'scandalous' way the Facebook CEO spent nearly $420 million to influence the 2020 election — and did so successfully.

On Thursday's radio program, Grace Smith and her father, Andy, joined Glenn Beck on the phone and provided a first-hand account of Grace's refusal to wear a mask at school.

Smith, 16, began a maskless protest after her school district in Laramie, Wyoming, decided to implement a mask mandate. As a result, Grace received three suspensions, was issued two $500-citations, and was eventually arrested.

"How long were you in jail?" Glenn asked.

Grace said was taken to jail but was never booked nor was she was placed in a jail cell.

Glenn commended Grace's father, Andy, for raising such a "great citizen" and asked if it was Grace's idea to protest. Andy said it was Grace's idea, explaining that they took the position of arguing on the grounds of civil rights rather than the efficacy of wearing a mask.

Grace has since withdrawn from public school and started a home school program. She also told Glenn that she will continue to fight the school district, legally.
