Yokohama: What are your all-time best and worst Christmas tunes?

by Paul Nehls

Jerri Harper
Housewife, 46 (American)
My favorite is “Silent Night.” My least favorite is “Jingle Bells” — it’s annoying.

Manabu Yamamoto
English instructor, 35 (Japanese)
I like “All I Want for Christmas.” Tatsuro Yamashita’s “Silent Night” makes me think of lonely singles.

M.C. Visger
Housewife, 36 (Filipino)
“Silent Night” is my favorite. My not-so-favorite is “Jingle Bell Rock.”

Michael Physick
English lecturer, 35 (British)
“Silent Night” is beautiful and touching. “I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus” is just annoying.

Akane Nishida
Student, 20 (Japanese)
“All I Want for Christmas” is an exciting song. Tatsuro Yamashita’s “Silent Night” is boring.

Dhugal Lindsay
Marine biologist, 46 (Australian)
“White Christmas” is my favorite, “Deck the Halls” the worst. Halls here are too small for it anyways.
