Listening to Christmas songs is reminding me of junior high music class. My teacher was an older Italian-American man with big glasses and a big nose who had absolutely no control of the class. I felt sorry for him, Mr. Magnoli or Miglini or Manelli or whatever his name was, I don't remember.
He had us spend the entire month of December singing "Winter Wonderland" every day from sheet music. Perhaps he was a real big Christmas fan, or he just found that we had fun caroling and didn't act up as much.
If you need to get yourself into the holiday spirit, go Elf Yourself. This provides hours of entertainment, I assure you.
(Johnny Cash's "Blue Christmas" is my new theme song because Boyfriend and I will be apart for most of the holidays.)
