    It's only November 2nd and I spent three hours helping a friend with her retail establishment's Christmas open house today.

    I'm done... No more...

    If I'm forced to listen to one more Christmas carol...I'm going to...BECOME RUSSIAN!

    I actually like this time of year.

    As far as songs go, only ones by Andy Williams are acceptable to my ears. Living in Nashville, I can't think of anything more ghastly then country twang take on Xmas songs.

    Otherwise, it's Xmas OTR and NTR from now until the Dec 26th.

    Working on a snowman frame by frame animation now as we speak.

    Now, I rarely go outside shopping anymore (I'm very happy with doing online shopping for just about everything except groceries), so I don't deal much with the brick and mortal retail aspect of it nearly as much as some.

    You're only as old as you wanna be. When Christmas comes around, I'm always a kid again. I love this time of year, too. It's for the young and the old, alike. As for it coming out at Halloween, too bad. There's too much other negativity to go around to be upset with, instead of Christmas.

    Hafta agree, growing up with Andy Williams was enough. I don't need him singing around me anymore.

    Yep, Burl Ives singing it's A Holly Jolly Christmas does it for me. We have sooo many Christmas discs, it ain't even funny. They start on Black Friday and keep going till about New Year's Eve. Kiss 'er once for me...........​

    Andy Williams had the young french wife who later dumped him for a ski guy in Aspen who was murdered and old Andy got the lawyer for her murder trial.

    Christmas always brings up many sad memories for me. I come from a very poor family but went to a predominately middle class school where the majority of the kids were happy and had all the latest and greatest while we struggled to even have enough to eat. I got picked on for my tattered clothes and such. One year I remember that if it weren't for a church bringing us gifts we would not have had a christmas that year. Our pipes often froze and heater would quit and we had to heat the house with the oven. It's amazing to me how much $$ into junk. Get the family together, eat well and ....

    Anyway, I work a part time job stocking shelves in a grocery store and every year they play Christmas music the whole time. Trouble is it's too mixed. I love the classics, that's prior to the 70's for those of you who don't know the definition of classics. There are very few songs that came along in the later years that are worth anything.

    Nat King Cole, Burl Ives, Andy Williams, Bing Crosby, Johnny Mathis, The Carpenters, Gene Autry, Ann Murray, Dean Martin, Sinatra, Brenda Lee, Ella Fitzgerald,

    ps. "Man, I used to play with that dude man"

    Wow, That's all I can say. He musta got a lotta coal in his stockings when he was a kid and instead of heating the house with it, he ate it or snorted it.

    I hadda listen to it a second time, to make sure I didn't like it. :frustrated:
