Re: Listening to Christmas Music

christmas music in britain basically means being subjected to Slade and Wizzard in every shop for the entirety of december.

Thus any possible joy is sapped from the concept of christmas music.

Re: Listening to Christmas Music

I love Christmas music but try to restrict it to the time between Thanksgiving and Christmas. But, of course, the local shops began playing holiday music on November 1st.

Never if I can avoid it.

But there is no reason for you foreigners to not suffer with me during those 4min38



There is version with Mireille Mathieu too if this one is not enough...

Re: Listening to Christmas Music

I love Christmas music. I usually hold off on listening until Thanksgiving, but I must admit that I've already added my favorite Christmas song to my playlist. Maybe because it's been a long time since I've seen my family. It makes me teary every time:

Re: Listening to Christmas Music

I start listening to it the weekend after Thanksgiving. I crank it up while I'm decorating the front yard - mostly because I like it but also to annoy the neighbors.

Could Greensleeves be considered Christmas music?
No, but "What Child is This?" is set to the same tune.

Whenever the shops start playing it.

The radio station I generally listen to usually starts playing Christmas-related music & carols in December, though I've noticed that the most recent time they played something from The Nutcracker, the presenter couldn't help adding in a x-weeks-until-Xmas type comment anyway.

Me, whenever I feel like it. I have some Christmas-themed mashups on my MP3 player of choice, and sometimes I can't help but break them out once in a while (or if I play them accidentally).


That, or whenever BBC Three shows the Doctor Who Christmas specials during its repeats cycle.

It's such a beautiful song, and so well encapsulates how I feel about Christmas. I really do get teary when I listen to it!

Re: Listening to Christmas Music

Shaytan, don't say that. I have always loved Petit Papa Noel. Didn't know about Mireille's version though. I was recently in France and picked up a big four disk boxed set of French Christmas songs from FNAC. I haven't listened to it yet though.

Oh it's wonderful, I love that song. It captures our Xmas's perfectly, that pretty much describes the day.
