    I received a You Tube alert with this new HOLIDAY song.

    Does this put you in the mood for the Xmas season?

    No Xmas music puts me in the mood for the holidays! Stores play too much of it too soon.

    It is too early for Xmas music. At least wait until after Thanksgiving.

    But, even if was after Thanksgiving, this is not remotely Christmasy. But I am a curmudgeon. I dislike the popularization and trivialization of Christmas with rock music, and smarmy patriotism (not that I don't want our troops overseas to get reminders that those of us at home are thinking of them).

    Give me "chestnuts roasting on the fire", or "a rhumpumpum..." or "The Nutcracker" or Hark the Heralds Angels Sing. But please....around November 30.

    Only one album puts me in the mood for the holidays, and that is Dina Martina's Holiday album (now available on iTunes!)

    From a performance. Note the camel toe that looks like three wise men rode on it.

    I sang with a Scandianvian choir for 12 years, and we always had a big Christmas concert, and I really came to connect Christmas with that music. The stuff that's piped over the loudspeakers at stores don't do it for me. This is the stuff that makes me think of Christmas and not the commercial stuff.

    Oh yeah, in this clip, that's Lucia in the front with all the candles on her head. Luciadagen (St. Lucia's Day) in December 13th in Sweden and it's supposed to signify the light coming back to the world. The guys in the back aren't wearing dunce caps, but they're dressed as Star Boys, and they supposedly had a role as the stable boys for St. Stephen's horses.

    The Vandals album "Oi to the World" is a must play album come late November for me.

    Since no one really commented on the original question, I will. That song is awful. LOL! It doesn't put me in the Christmas spirit at all.

    What's really strange is that I keep forgetting it's even the holidays in a couple weeks. There's no Christmas songs playing in stores here, no decorations, no cold (or even cooler) weather, etc... I never realized how much I depended on these "cues" to get in the holiday mood.

    Sorry to be a grinch but I just about hate Christmas. I'll never say I hate anything...but I'm pretty close to it. I guess I at least appreciate seeing my family members...but other than that...Christmas is a pretty grim day for me.
