Is it Time Yet?

I mean, it’s after Thanksgiving. It’s December.

Do I have license to play Christmas music now? If so, here’s an awfully happy opening salvo: Richard Ruskin and John Fahey playing “Oh Holy Night” from Fahey’s album, The New Possibility: John Fahey’s Soli Christmas Album.

Last year I started posting Christmas music on Dec. 3—you’re jumping the gun.

Nah, it’s after Thanksgiving. Christmas music is allowed now. Decorating the tree, though ... that has to wait for the Army-Navy game.

TW: ago54. Yep, two years. Or maybe one year after.

Bah! Humbug!

But you don’t really want my opinion. You’re just looking for validation. smile

I will note that, while searching for this video, I discovered that Twisted Sister has covered I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus.

Everyone, I mean everyone, ought to be aware of the Trans-Siberian Orchestra, and if your not, well, damnit, get with the program.

In general, I like John Fahey. Don’t have much in my collection though.

Also, yes, I know how to differentiate between your and you’re, but sometimes the fingers don’t listen to the brain.

And, yes, it really is too early for me to listen to Xmas music. If I’m not careful, and end up hearing too much of it, I’ll be sick of it in a couple of weeks. (Especially, there’s one Target ad that’s particularly grating. Note to marketers: don’t fuck with good music.)

Meant to check that little box too.

This year the week before Thanksgiving was pretty slow so I put up the outside lights on Wednesday. We were the first to “go light” on our block. I could visualize dads driving home that night, seeing the lights, and knowing their wives would be asking “why aren’t OUR lights up?”

I apologize for undermining the stability of tradition, but it was then or never.

(I suppose I could have just left them unplugged until the time was appropriate. But that involves an extra step for me, and so...)
