War Music

It’s that time of year when I listen to my various Holiday playlists. I have my songs categorized according to various aspects, allowing me to segregate the religious songs from the secular, the traditional Christmas tunes from the fringe, or even songs that are really just winter tunes from ones that owe their allegiance to specific holidays.

One of the things that I like about the seasonal songs is that they help us to branch out from the usual artists and styles and try something different. In my winter selection there’s tunes like Jingle Bells, It’s a Marshmallow World, and Baby It’s Cold Outside. These are great songs all of which I discovered through collections of Christmas music, but none of which have anything actually to do with Christmas.

I suppose you could look at that as just another way that Christmas attempts to absorb everything around it.

War on Christmas, indeed, humph.
