I gave in and officially started playing Christmas music

Normally I would not tune into my Christmas music station until thanksgiving day. But given how late thanksgiving is this year, and I’m off today prepping for tomorrow’s family party I’m jamming away to Christmas music.

“Smooth Jazz Christmas”, my favorite.

Re: I gave in and officially started playing Christmas music

Yay!!! I usually start the day after halloween.

One of the most relaxing albums I listen to is Michael W. Smith's Christmas (1994).

I just put on Joy Division really loud in my office to try to drown out the idea that I might be hearing christmas music soon.

Re: I gave in and officially started playing Christmas music

I'm always looking for good songs to sing karaoke to and suddenly Christmas songs are coming out of my mouth without even realizing it in the past few days. It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas.....(slaps own forehead)....what??? I don't even like that song!

I love that song and sing it a lot at Christmas time. My exh used to sing the other part but he never knew the song that well so couldn't get into a rhythm with it. So I just ended up singing it with whoever is singing it on youtube.

Definitely feeling like the holidays, three straight nights the temperature dipped into the 70s. Blanket and long-sleeve weather.

I've never been there at Christmastime but I've been there in January. Wish I was there now! Getting down to 25 degrees for the next couple of nights here. Wish I was going surfing instead of being huddled by a space heater in my apartment, ha!

It's a problematic song for sure. Someone made a version with different lyrics all about consent and awareness, it was really cute.

A lot of radio stations pulled the song last year, and then a few stations played the other angle and refused to pull it. I don't know what will happen this year.

Lol, I didn't mean that. I was actually being more than a little sexist - I was saying that I'd rather look at her than listen to her.

Bad on me.
