* "Unable to verify referring url. Please go back and try again" Problem Logging In?

If you get an "Unable to verify referring url. Please go back and try again" error when you try to log in, you need to be sure you are accessing the board with a url that starts with "https://ecauldron.com".  If it starts with https://www.ecauldron.com" (or "http://www.ecauldron.com") you will get this error because "www.ecauldron.com" is not technically the same website as "ecauldron.com". Moving to the more secure "https" means it is more picky about such things.

Antidotes to hated Christmas songs, 2018 Edition

And, as has been repeatedly demonstrated over the years, we can't have a Most Hated Christmas Songs thread without also having a thread for posting the songs you use to drive out the hated-song earworms.

What are your favorite musical antidotes to overplayed Christmas glurge?

I hadn't been thinking of it as that, specifically,  but I recently dusted off Siouxsie & The Banshees' "Hyena" and have been listening to it a lot, and finding it stuck in my head more often than the more tedious holiday selections out and about lately, so let's go with that.

The least Christmassy winter song I know of:


"Winter Games". (I have fond memories of this from the opening of the 1988 Winter Olympics, which was a video me and my brother watched many times ... we had strange taste as kids.)
