A Christmas Holiday Torture?

A British group says the holidays bring a special form of torture to some employees, in the form of endless loops of Christmas carols.

The U.K. Noise Association is considering legal action on behalf of retail workers … claiming that being forced to listen to the same songs over and over is “no different to being tortured.”

Lawyers say any lawsuit would have to demonstrate that holiday music could make employees physically ill. But one labor union insists that Christmas Carol overload could create an unhealthy working environment, saying “it must drive people to distraction.”
