Music Monday: Please, No Christmas Music!

Okay, I totally not a Scrooge (I LOVE Christmas) but I just can't get into Christmas music just yet. Hallmark Movies? Yes. It's one of my guilty pleasures but I can't get into anything else that has to do with Christmas. To me (as well as my many fellow Catholics), the Christmas season doesn't start until the start of Advent... and we're still days away from that. Here in L.A, both 94.7 The Wave and Coast 103.5 have their 24/7 Christmas music on. Sorry, I just can't.

Since most of us are in the same boat, I thought that it would be a good idea to create a playlist of songs that have nothing to do with Christmas but remind me of autumn and winter.

For the record, these songs are really up my old fashioned gal alley so I don't expect you all to like them. In fact, I don't think many of you will. lol. I adore the era of the 1940s through early 1950s so don't be surprised to see so many songs from that era. ;) For those of you who do enjoy these kinds of songs, you are more than happy to bookmark this post and listen to the songs until the start of Advent.

And this is my contribution to the "Save Christmas" campaign. ;)

Now, if you'll excuse me, I have work. No rest for the wicked. lol.

I hope y'all have a great week! Let me know if you have any prayer requests. :D

As always, thanks for reading and God Bless! :D

Indeed, Christmas starting earlier isn't about celebrating Christ's incarnation but rather conspicuous consumption.
Christmas music and shopping seems to start earlier and earlier every year. I saw some Christmas stuff in the stores before Halloween.
You should Google "Keep the Mass in Christmas"

On the same boat? I'm pretty sure not listening to Christmas music before or after a certaindate is purely an issue of personal preference. That said, nice playlist, if a bit too easy listening for my taste.

I always want some Christmas tuneage after Thanksgiving, though this year, it's taking me a bit longer. Once I watch Elf, though, I'm hopeless. Which reminds me... Baby it's cold outside isn't really Christmas technically :)
The soundtrack to Sleepless in Seattle (old but good) is full of those happy old timey songs. And when it is the right season, you might like the classic Christmas remixes, which I love, b/c they have that old radio sound with a great beat.
