I always refuse to begin listening to Christmas music until Thanksgiving night. It's tough, but that allows me to focus on Thanksgiving before letting Christmas creep into daily life for the month of December. Don't get me wrong - I love everything Christmas - but some boundaries are needed, no?
My music of choice last year and this year (so far) has been the Rockin' Holidays Pandora station. It plays all of my favorites - modern hits with some classics thrown in. I got to thinking about what my all-time favorite Christmas song is...do you have one?
It's tough to narrow down, but I think my ultimate Christmas song is Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas. It just embodies everything about the holiday season that I love so much. It makes me simultaneously happy and sad...happy for the joy the season brings to so many and yet also invokes a bit of sadness in its melody and the evocative feelings of loss and emptiness.
So what do you think? Do you have a favorite Christmas song?
