I love to hear Christmas music playing in the shops but I do object to it all starting so early. December 1st is earlier enough for anyone, that is the time I drag out the Christmas favourite double disc and play endlessly in the car or house, this year Michael Buble's Christmas album has join my collection and is very enjoyable, but what I do lack as far as music is concerned is a good selection of traditional Christmas carols - must look for one as I don't think you can beat a good choir singing carols. But I guess the song that does it for me has to be Bing Crosby and White Christmas. As I write this the hail has started to fall!!! Where's the snow that is what I want to know :)
Another thing I love to see is the Salvation Army band playing in town, hmmm, as for carol singers they are a very distant childhood memory of the past and now only seen in films.
