    Christmas music...

    There's an FM station in town that plays Christmas carols, hymns, music, songs around the clock from Thanksgiving to Christmas and then some.
    My wife loves Chrismas music and listens to this station from the time she gets up til she goes to bed. She also loves watching the Christmas Carol whenever it comes on TV during the holiday season, and has videos and CD's of all versions of it.
    Don't get me wrong, as I like Christmas music, but when the little drummer boy, the 3 kings and the partridges in the pear tree are rumpa tum tumming, traveling afar and flying around in your head when the radio is off, then that's too much of a good thing.
    Incidently, what's your favorite/s Christmas carol/song?
    I like Elvis's Blue Christmas and Bing Crosby's White Christmas, but I sure don't want to listen to either of them anymore tonight.

    christmas with the rat pack...my all time favorite christmas cd
    in the warriors code there's no surrender, though his body says stop, his spirit cries...NEVER. deep in our souls, a quiet ember, knows its you against you, its the paradox that drives us all. its a battle of wills, in the heat of attack, its the passion that kills, and victory is yours alone.

    I used to work in a grocery store in college.

    I used to get annoyed when I went to buy a quart of milk and some bread, and I had to listen to christmas music for 10 minutes while I was there. Wow...after 8 hours I was ready to kill myself.


    I'm ok with Christmas music, but not in November, and not for 10 hours of my days.

    LOL... I hear ya. But, there is a certain charm to Christmas music.
    Let her enjoy, and invest in some earplugs.

    Favorite carol is: Mary Did You Know
    Excellent song.
    Very moving.

    It Wasn't His Child and O' Holy Night.

    I feel bad for the DJs at the stations that switch over to purely Christmas music at like Labor Day, lol, I'd probably shoot myself.
    Thereís a promise I need you to make
    While Iím gone you take care of the love
    And Iíll deal with the hate.

    Donít worry about me; Iíll be all right
    Just care for your children and sleep tight
    Iíll keep you safe on my watch tonight

    That's ok, they're funny enough to make up for it. And it's a great CD, I'm going to have to re-buy it. Mine grew legs and wandered off, apparantly.

    I do love the Barenaked Ladies, I've seen them in concert a few times. They are hilarious.

    I bet BigDawg stole your cd just before he took Santa hostage.

    I know its completely un-American, but I can't stand Christmas music. I guess its all that time I spent working in retail. I'd hear the same track 50 times a day. The only X-mas music that I can actually enjoy these days is gospel. My favorite are the Blind Boys From Alabama. (Oh...I also enjoy Latin Christmas music and some 80's holiday tunes).
    Some people dream of success, while other people live to crush those dreams.

    Celtic Woman, a group of five Irish women who each is a well known solo artist, is coming to town after Christmas, and this is what I'm waiting for.

    I can't stand Christmas music on the radio. To me Christmas is just another day, it has been ever since the Marines. This year my wife is taking the kids and bailing overseas to see her family so, no reason to get into it now is there?

    THAT, is just plain wrong.
    NO ONE should be alone on Christmas.

    You can come to my house for turkey and trimmings...but you will have to put up with Christmas music, and watching White Christmas...at least once.

    Seriously...I hope you have a good one.
