(note: on the 1st November 2014 meanmistermustard merged three additional Christmas threads into here, they're details are as follows:

Posts 2 -> 16: 'Happy X-Mas (War Is Over)'

Posts 17 -> 44: 'Christmas Breaks'

Posts 45 -> 123: 'Favourite Christmas Song'.

Post 124 was originally the reply immediately after what has become post 1.)

  

Take 2 ('feel good - just put in an A") (as the first effort failed to post and had to start again).

 

So its Decemeber 1 as i type here where i am. And to bring some festiveness, hopefully, thought about having a christmas flavoured thread (it may last about as long as snow in Hawaii).

Anything christmassy goes but to hopefully get some momentum.

 

Are you in the christmas spirit yet or even fed up with hearing Jingle Bells for the 500th time already?

I'd not heard 1 christmas song before starting this thread.

 

Are you doing anything special, do you have any family traditions that are done each year (hanging stockings up, watching a movie etc)?

When younger my family used to wait until around 11am before opening the presents and even then it would only end at around 1/2 3 in the afternoon (breakfast, preparing dinner, the christmas walk always came first). It would be one present at a time and there were 8 of us in total so it took ages.  It was great fun even with arguements. And of course the games in the evening, and the arguing as well.

 

What are your favourite christmas songs, the ones you look forward to hearing/playing?

My top 10 are (in no order):

Happy Xmas (War Is Over) - John and Yoko (more meat to the normal bare bones christmas, it makes you think, well it does me).

Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas - Kendall Payne (a trully stunning rendition).

Driving Home For Christmas - Chris Rea.

Let It Snow! Let It Snow! Let It Snow! - Dean Martin.

The Christmas Song - Nat King Cole.

Sleigh Bells - The Ronettes.

Keeping The Dream Alive - Münchener Freiheit.

Winter Wonderland - Doris Day.

Rockin' Around The Christmas Tree - Brenda Lee.

A Winter's Tale - Queen.

 

And not to forget the Beatles christmas messages. If you havent heard the 7 messages recorded between 1963 and 1970 they are on youtube and are really funny, going from heavily scripted to plays to individual bits and pieces. Well worth the listen.

 

Edit (1st November 2014):

Three other christmas threads that are out there in the wild expanse of the forum that folk might find of interest in the build up to the festive period are:

"I told you everything I could about me, Told you everything I could" ('Before Believing' - Emmylou Harris) 

"Don't make your love suffer insecurities; Trade the baggage of 'self' to set another one free" ('Paper Skin' - Kendall Payne)

I know it's barely even Thanksgiving, but it's not too late to think about Christmas.

Glass Christmas

If you want a Crazy Bash

Head over To The Fool On The Hill  

he`ll Get the party Started

And The Rest is Up To you

And Now I say

Enjoy The Holidays

Don`t Hold a Grudge

As Time Goes By

Let It Be  

And let Em In

As This Is The Best time Of Year

For All of Us

And I say, From Me To You

Have A Smashing Time All

Too late? Don't tell me you've joined the "put-'Stocking-Stuffer'-signs-on-all-sale-items-and-start-playing-'Jingle Bells'-on-the-radio-the-day-after-Labor-Day" bandwagon!

If I seem to act unkind, it's only me, it's not my mind that is confusing things.

*whew!* 

I thought I'd lost you.... 

Nah, my mom's been asking us about what we think others in our family want. And she's asked the kids to start hinting to my dad that she wants Anthology.

What a great mom.

To the fountain of perpetual mirth, let it roll for all its worth. And all the children boogie.

I'll pass on the compliment.

ME: Mom, Zig says you're a great mom.

MOM: Um... I take it that that's a good thing....

ME: It is. Zig is the BEST! 

MOM: OK.... Tell "Zig" I say thanks.

I'm hoping to convince my Mom that buying the Stereo Boxed Set would be a great present for my Dad. I'm the music expert in the house, and I just might be able to convince her that Dad needs to 'branch out' with his musical interests

Because the wind is high, it blows my mind.
