Note Left At Restaurant Asks For Christmas Music To Stop (Photo)

A Florida restaurant owner posted a Facebook photo of a note that was left at his restaurant asking him to not play Christmas music because it was "offensive." 

WSOC-TV reports that chef Michael Lugo of Michael’s Tasting Room in St. Augustine, Florida, received a note from an anonymous customer asking him to please change the music.  

The note read: "Christmas music was offensive. Consider playing 'holiday' music or less religious themed."

Lugo posted the note to Facebook with the caption: “Really… what’s wrong with people.”  Hundreds have since commented on the post.  

One Facebook user wrote, “If I ever complained about a waitress wearing a burka i would be labeled a racist. If i didn't like African themed art on a wall i would be labeled a racist. Why does someone think it is not racist to trash Christmas?” 

Another added: “Christmas music is fine, but perhaps you would have the intelligence to realize that after being battered with it for well over a month, maybe someone would like to eat in peace without hearing the 100th version of "Silent Night?" Or would considering the feelings of your customers hurt your fragile ego?” 

No one has come forward to claim responsibility for leaving the note, so it’s impossible to tell if the person is anti-Christmas, or just anti-Christmas music.
