I’m Dreaming of a Blue Christmas…Not…


Seems everywhere I turn…someone is playing Christmas music…well…it is the season…but lots of it is just plain tragic…love gone bad…mama going to meet Jesus…it makes me sad to listen to it…so…unless forced to…tied…gagged and bound…I don’t…I have changed radio stations in the past because they only played Christmas music seemingly from Labor Day through New Year’s…
Personally…I like the happy songs…the ones that make you feel good all over…like Grandma Got Run Over by a Reindeer…now who wouldn’t feel good while listening to that…my whole family loves it…even Grandma…
Some of my other funny favs include…
I Want a Hippopotamus for Christmas…hello…Hippo Hero…glad you’re a vegetarian…
The Chimney Song…there’s something stuck up in the chimney…and I don’t know what it is…makes me glad I don’t have a fireplace…
The Restroom Door Said Gentlemen…now…I can’t sit in comfort and joy…love the play on words…who thinks up these songs…oh…Bob Rivers…
Santa Claus in Watching You…remember when Clyde the camel replaced Rudolph who dislocated his hip in a twist contest…
I know…I know…I’m weird…but…to me…sad Christmas music is like somebody telling me that I’ve gained weight…and we all know how that feels…okay…some of you don’t know…so let me just tell you…it feels crummy…I am aware of the weight…hello…I have a mirror…
Same difference with the songs…I’m aware of all the sad things that happen around Christmas…people who are lonely…people who are sad over the loss of a loved one…I don’t want to be reminded of it in my songs…
I want peace on earth…good will to men and women…I want hope…and love…and a warm fuzzy feeling…
Somehow…crazy mixed up Christmas songs do that for me…but…even them in small doses…
Bertha says that’s a part of living my truth…finding what makes me happy and embracing it…finding what makes me sad…and letting it go…whether it’s thoughts or music…it really doesn’t matter…
So…I listen to a station that plays the occasional Christmas song…and if it’s one that brings blue thoughts…I turn down the volume…easy peasy…

  1. I am with you Jane, bring on the bright green, red, purple and pink Christmas. While I have a ton of HAPPY Christmas music and like to listen while decorating and a little on Christmas that is enough for me. I don't understand the three month 24 hour Christmas song stations.

  2. I'm with you, Edie…and you know Bertha loves lime green and pink decorations…she'll probably put bows on the flamingos. In years past…the stations would play some Christmas songs during the month…and all day on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day…which was just enough for me.

    Thanks, Cheri! What kind of Christmas music do they play in Mexico?

    • Hella…I know what you mean…but…I realize that the shortest day of the year is quickly approaching…then…a few more seconds of daylight every day…Wishing you a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
