Quote from: springrite on November 20, 2007, 02:38:10 AMI used to love Christmas. But the commericalisation of Christmas has made it less appealing than it was, and I can do without a month worth of relentless Christmas music. That said, I do listen to the Christmas Orotario every year and enjoy it immensely. Actually, I do listen to Christmas music more than that. I just do not listen to any of the usual suspects (minus the Christmas Orotario, if it is considered by some to be one).

Quote from: johnQpublic on November 20, 2007, 04:51:01 AMOver the last goodly number of years I have listened to seven days' worth of Classical Christmas music leading up to the big day itself.This year with much of my collection in storage and the real possibility of traveling during that time period I will not be doing so. Carry the torch for me Harry.

Quote from: Harry Collier on November 20, 2007, 07:15:02 AMChristmas Eve has always meant for me:a) A bottle of very good wine.b) A large Bach work (usually Mass in B minor, or St Matthew Passion).
Quote from: Norbeone on November 20, 2007, 07:24:38 AMI'm much the same, and thus the christmas two years ago was particularly special, with BBC Radio 3 playing every Bach work non-stop for two weeks over christmas. It felt almost like it was meant just for me!

Quote from: Harry on November 20, 2007, 02:10:28 AMChristmas is a very important and festive period in my life to which I attached great importance. First it is a religious thing for me, and secondly it unites people, even if it is for the duration of three days. One of the things that is also a treat for me, is finding new Christmas cd's, and browsing after it is great fun. Will post here my first findings, and urge you to do also, and tell your feelings about Christmas, better still...
