It is November 30 – the Monday after Thanksgiving and I have finally been able to listen to Christmas music. Our local FM radio station started playing our favorite festive tunes the day after Halloween. To go from jack-o-lanterns to Santa Claus in one step almost sent me over the edge. I simply could not listen – it was just too early. A few weeks later poor ‘ole Thanksgiving was squeezed out again this year. Retailers understandably want you to start getting “in the spirit” a little earlier and it is smart indeed to put those checks on your gift list.
After the turkey leftovers are thankfully gone, the time is finally right for me to enjoy the sounds of the season. Won’t you turn up the volume on your radio or electronic device and enjoy the music with me. Let’s get in the Christmas spirit by singing along to our old time favorites….. Fa la la la la, la la la la.
