Paper seduced by crass commercialism

Reader disapproves of title of the Peninsula News Review's Holiday Songbook

The words and music are beautiful but to call it a Holiday Song Book is a misnomer.

It is a lovely little book of Christmas carols and to call it anything else merely indicates you have been seduced by the crass commercialism which has overtaken the true spirit. Shame on you.
