    Do you listen?

    When do you listen?

    What do you listen to (oldies or newer versions)?

    I've listened to a little already. Holly, traditional and hallmark Christmas music channels went live starting November on SiriusXM radios.

    I start on Thanksgiving night because the area I live in turns the tree and the lights on at dusk on that day and I sit out on the patio taking it all in.

    I used to be a Christmas music fool and had over 150 Chritsmas CD's that I gave to a friend after I lost my wife because I did my best to avoid anything Christmas. We were pretty much over the top with decorating, usually took a full 5 days, two trees, a Dept 56 village 12 feet long and the outside which I alternating going half or full Griswold on.

    I primarily listen to 4 types of Christmas music: jazz (GRP, Guaraldi, Bruebeck), new age (Narada and Windham Hill), standards (Sinatra, a martini and a fire) but mostly Trans-Siberian Orchestra, the last concert we ever attended together.

    Speaking of Christmas I have been asked to decorate a big office for a company (a client of mine).
    It is not my line of work but hey why not make some extra cash.
    Anyone have some tips about what to get and what not to get?
    much appreciated

    When I become emperor of the world there will be NO references of Christmas allowed until December 1. I used to say until after Thanksgiving but they had to go and start with that Black Friday crap so December 1 it is.

    We share the same taste. The only Christmas song I like is Cheech & Chong's Santa Clause And His Old Lady. I'll sing along with that one.

    Short answer:

    People probably (and wrongly) think I'm kidding.

    Maybe when I'm wrapping gifts. Other than that, I try to avoid it. Prefer Elvis Christmas songs.
