Christmas Songs Musings, Part 1

Mommy Kissing Santa Claus

How cruel is this song? Imagine, you are a little kid, believing in Santa Claus. You sneak down the stairs to see if you can get a glimpse of Santa eating the milk and cookies you set out for him. What do you see? Your mom kissing a man besides your father! How scarring would that have been? Would you ever look at your mom the same way again? Would you be tempted to tell your dad? Or would you let it gnaw away at you until you developed an eating disorder or developed some depression issues? That is a cruel song.

BTW, I used to love Christmas music. That is until the advent of 24 hour a day Christmas music stations that start playing in November. I used to love listening to my favorite stations and they would sprinkle in one or two of my favorite Christmas songs. Now it is non stop. And it is about the same five songs rerecorded by so many spares. Songs I hate: Rockin’ around the Christmas Tree; Holly Jolly Christmas; Jingle Bell Rock; Santa Baby (especially the Madonna version); Grown Up Christmas List. I’m sure there are others. Maybe you could help me out and list you least favorite Christmas songs. Look for my favorites coming up soon.

Grown up Christmas list does suck. I don't lke when certain people sing Christmas songs in particular Bruce Springstein and the Chipmunks. I turn the channel when I hear them.

We are back in town. My Mother in law in coming in on the 22 for Christmas and we are going to St. Louis around New years. What are you guys up to? Another person I hate singing Christamas songs is George Micheal.
