Feliz Navidad

Does anyone know a good word for an experience that seems like it is in the wrong location or geographic context? The word for this in the wrong time is anachronistic. Any ideas of a good word for that?

I was in a French Cafe today in Hanoi, Vienam, eating a croissant, and I heard Feliz Navidad (put to dance music). I really hoped I wasn't going to have to hea that song this season.

Oh well.

Just reading the words of the name of the song got it stuck in my head, if that's any consolation. Ye are not alone.

Is the word "surreal?"
