It must be getting close to Christmas.
After bugging me for the last several weeks about playing Christmas music in our cutting room, Dana finally convinced me today to put some on. For the last few hours that we were in the office we worked away to the gentle melodies of the Glenn Miller Orchestra’s “In The Christmas Mood” volumes one and two.
When I was growing up there were two Time-Life cassettes of Christmas music that my parents had and for me those songs really represent the spirit of the season. Unless my memory is playing tricks on me, I think the series was called “Home For The Holidays”.
Time-Life doesn’t sell it anymore but thankfully a few years ago I discovered that they had a new set of CDs with nearly the same track list, “The Time-Life Treasury Of Christmas”. I gave those as a gift to my mom that year and now I insist that if she’s going to put on some music when I visit her, those have to go into the rotation.
Christmas music is one of those festive holiday things, but I can’t take a lot of it. I hoping that we don’t have to listen to it everyday for the next three weeks.
