  • what means it's Christmas time to you?

    Someone posted the other day about the coke advert coming on the television being the start of christmas for them.
    I love the variety of music that's available to celebrate christmas be it religious or secular and I really enjoy discovering new (or old) treasures, however for me, it's usually the magic moment of looking off the dias while singing at a hundred or so school children holding their christingles in the dark.
    I do find it really hard to sing at that moment as it causes a lump to form in my throat and a real feeling of christmas.

      Speaking of music, has anyone heard the tv ad song " It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas" and if so, do you know who sings it? I'm thinking it's Dean Martin, but I'm not sure?

      Oh, and Christmas wouldn't be the same without a dose of Oliver Twist!

          It was a hit in 1951 for Perry Como, it was also recorded in the same year by Bing Crosby, and Johnny Mathis revived it in 1986. Don't know which version they're playing on tv though.

              Once our tree is up and the presents all wrapped underneath then I start to feel all Christmassy and know most of the hard work is done and I can start to relax and enjoy looking forward to the day

                    I know it's really Christmas Day when I see the summer holiday and store sale adverts on the TV!

                      Depends on the year. For the last couple, I've been working right up to and including Christmas eve, so it doesn't really feel like Christmas until I can get home and relax. Although I'm not particularly religious, I do like going to the watchnight service at the church. That makes me feel really Christmassy.

                        Once I have all the shopping done. I have all the present shopping finished already, but once I have everything made, the food purchased, and I get everything prepared and ready.

                        Before this, everything just seems to be a never ending stream of appointments, and making things, and pantomimes, and school concerts, and shopping....I like it best when everything is done and it is time to relax!

                          Just in case the thread was getting too sentimental!!

                          I know it is Christmas when the dining room has been cleared of all my craft material (or at least hidden!) so that I can decorate for Christmas.

                            When the shops all start playing the Christmas songs, mainly Slade 'Merry xmas everbody' and Wizard - I wish it could be xmas every day. I remember them when they first come out so I've been hearing them forever it seems. I love all the old Bing Crosby and Jim Reeves ones as well, White Xmas and merry xmas Polka are my favouries.
                            My DH is not really into Xmas at all, he still has to feed and milk the cows so He doesn't really get a break. He's only had two days off in 15years, and that was when he was in hospital about 5 years ago. But we will have a turkey and all the trimmings, and a tin of quality street.
