I’m busy this week, sewing for a handbag “show” at my in-law’s house this weekend. But I needed to take a moment for my yearly complaint about Christmas music. I’m certain there ARE people who are grateful to hear nothing but Christmas music in every single store, but I don’t like those people. Let’s assume for the moment that I enjoy Christmas music (I don’t. I worked in a mall one holiday season. It broke me. I never want to hear any of them–except “I want a Hippopotamus for Christmas” and “Oh Holy Night”–ever again. But you know what I really, really, really don’t ever want to hear again? That wretched “Christmastime is here ” or “Christmas time again” or whatever song from Charlie Brown. h.a.t.e it. It could suck the joy out of a puppy carnival. It’s a depressant. It’s Zacorp. It brings me DOWN, man. Hate it. Stop playing it. Thank you.
