I have a confession to make. I already listened to Christmas music. I knew it was wrong and I did it anyway. But I couldn't help myself! I just found out a couple of weeks ago that Barry Manilow (anyone leaving negative comments about Barry will be hunted down and forced to listen to his music until you change your mind) put out a second Christmas Album a couple of years ago; of course I bought it. I got if off of eBay, and it just arrived today. I tried to talk myself into waiting to listen to it til after Thanksgiving. But before I knew it, I was moving to the CD player as if I had no control. /sigh. It sure is a good CD, though. Quite worth a momentary lapse in the "No-Christmas-til-after-Thanksgiving" rule I've always had. Besides, if I didn't break my own rules every now and then, what would be the fun of having them?

I hate Christmas. But I really hate it because the idea of it is so nice and then people have to enforce it and limit it to one day, and regulate it and whatnot. The important parts of Christmas should not have to be part of Christmas only. It should be all year round.

So you listen to your Christmas music. You listen to it whenever you damn well want to and don't let anyone ruin it for you... *laugh*

I cannot believe that YOU would break such a cardinal rule of Christmas!!! Isn't bad enough that the stores have been toting the holiday since Halloween?!?!
However, in light of the fact that it is Barry (and for the record, I bought the CD last Christmas!) I suppose I can forgive you!
Lots of love and have a good Turkey Day-Jaime
