I had to cheat this year. Either I had bad luck or some people who decide the songs to play at Christmas think we'd rather hear the same crazy warbling of Christine Aguilera's Christmas songs than to hear Bruce Springsteen's Santa Claus is Coming to Town. I waited for that song every day this month, but it never came. Finally tonight I had planned to head over to my mom's for a Christmas Eve dinner and a couple of presents so I had to put in the CD and play it myself first. It felt like cheating, but as song as I heard the opening notes it was suddenly Christmas!
This year the Christmas season began at 4:26pm December 24th.
