alpharaposa: (christmas)
I was grumpy for a while around Thanksgiving because all the Christmas specials were already bombarding the stores. The day after Halloween, I went to buy leftover Halloween candy, only to discover it was already removed to make room for Christmas candy!

It's easy to get grumped about things like that. I want my discount peanut-butter candies!

But yesterday was the first sunday in Advent, and today I was just moving about the house and found myself singing Christmas Carols under my breath. Even with being tucked away in the house and not having gone out for a couple of days, the Advent season leaves its mark on my soul.

I don't have much in the way of Christmas music, but I checked our cable programming and, sure enough, there's a channel that does nothing but play Christmas music. It's been on all afternoon while I read books and petted cats and moved a little laundry.

Early on, I had a thought- a carol is a dancing tune, isn't it? So, does that mean that songs like "Santa, Baby" and "Rockin' Around the Christmas Tree" are Christmas Carols?

(Anyway, it's a decent selection of music on the channel. Lots of Bing Crosby and show tunes, some pop, and some traditional ones. Just now, it finished with "Bring a Torch".)
