Subject: York shop bans 'cheesy' Christmas songs to keep staff sane

Written By: Philip Eno on 11/12/19 at 4:24 am

A shop in York has banned Christmas songs for the sake of staff morale, its owners have said. Mariah Carey's All I Want For Christmas Is You or Slade's Merry Xmas Everybody will not be playing in the York Gin Shop in the lead up to this year's festive period. Its owners said it would ruin Christmas for shop floor staff who have to endure the music for eight hours a day.

"We've tested lots of songs to see which sound OK and which sound weird. And there's a cut-off in the 1960s. Anything after that has been banned.
