I’ve been putting off a post about Christmas music. I figured I had more than enough time, but with Christmas being in less than a week, this is my last chance to talk about it. Oh, sure, I could do it on a day that is not Monday. I could even do it the Monday after Christmas. But: I don’t have any other music-related things to talk about. And talking about Christmas music after Christmas is over? That’s a little weird.
There’s something fun about Christmas. You have the traditional favorites, like Rudolph The Red-Nosed Reindeer, Winter Wonderland, White Christmas and Jingle Bells. You have everyone and their mother coming out with Christmas albums (cough*justinbieber*cough). And you have the novelty songs. The 12 Days Of Redneck Christmas, anyone?
That’s right, dear readers, I actually felt the need to buy The 12 Days Of Redneck Christmas. I don’t have much Christmas music. Because who doesn’t have All I Want For Christmas Is You by Mariah Carey?
I am willing to bet that not a lot of people have Wrock Christmas Songs though. But really, how could you not like the 12 Days Of Wizard Christmas, Christmastime At Hogwarts, and Have Yourself A Harry Little Christmas? I definitely like the 12 Wizard Days of Christmas, and I’ve listened to it so many times that I’ve prettty much forgotten the lyrics to the original song. Honestly, though, what better way to confuse people than to go around singing the lyrics to a song they’ve never heard of because they’re not crazy, obsessed Harry Potter fans?
There’s something fun about Christmas music, and I think it’s the overall novelty of it. Music that you pretty much listen to once a year? I’m in! Granted, you could listen to it anytime of the year, but there’s just something about listening to Christmas music for one month out of the year.
There’s this whole image in my head of listening to christmas music while drinking some cider and decorating the tree. Christmas music is magic!
