Tips for Buying a Fresh Tree
I will do that fresh cut of the trunk.....that was my problem last Christmas.....the tree lost so many needles....even tho it was fresh....the problem was....since I didnīt cut the trunk....the tree...
I'm not a big fan of the Twelve Days of Christmas but don't dislike it. I think having to sing it every year in school ruined it for me. I would have to say i dislike most of the contempory stuff by the "pop" bands. I'm more into the old classics although there are a few newer songs that i do like just not as many.
I love the classics and I'm not big on the "pop" stuff or most of the remakes. So, while I'm decorating I do the parody stuff by Bob Rivers and nearer to Christmas I put on the Classics. I think the worst album (CD) is the Redneck Christmas.
I would by no means call this the WORST Christmas cd, but I was really disappointed with Johnny Mathis' latest Christmas cd. Johnny's voice still sounds great, but the production on the album was not very good. The orchestrations sound kind of cheesy and over-synthesized to me. I still listen to it occasionally, but it is inferior to all of Johnny's other Christmas cds.
Why does a smiley replace the word c-h-e-e-s-y in my post?
Well, I don't know about Albums (although I've heard some pretty BAD Christmas music in my time) but I do know what gets my vote as the worst (and probably most overplayed) Christmas song of all time: Christmas Shoes.
For me Christmas is a time of joy, happiness, jingle bells and Holly Jolly Christmas stuff...and then the DJ plays that awful song and it all goes to..well, you know. Who writes a song like that at Christmas?? Who wants to listen to a Christmas song where the little kids mom is dying?? It's just way too sad and just makes me .
Oh, as a little side story. I had heard this song being played at work so everytime it would come on the radio station in the car, I would quickly change the station. Well, one day my DH was complaining that I always switched that song...he said he'd never heard it and he wanted to hear it. I tried to warn him about how sad it was but he said to leave it the next time it came on, so I did. It was Christmas Eve and we were driving to the in-laws, I started to change the station when the song came on but he asked me to leave it so he could hear it.
So, when the song was over, I looked over at him, his eyes were all puffy red from crying, tears streaming down his face.
I said "you're crying"
He said "OF COURSE I'M CRYING! What am I? Made of stone?"
