It's all my fault. I basically do no like most Christmas music. And the newer and more modern it is, the less I like it. She was just listening to something like this (I can't find the exact thing she was listen to, maybe I have the artist wrong):
And I said, "I'd better leave before that gives me diabetes" which upset her. For some reason she doesn't seem to be able discern the difference between that and this:
(This version drags a little, this is supposed to be a joyous song, not a dirge but this version is too fast. The version I have is almost just about right.).
I got sick of Christmas music when I worked as a disk jockey in the late '70s (yes, I'm dating myself) and we played Christmas music incessantly from Thanksgiving to December 25th. And the sappier it is, the more I dislike it. Whereas the sappier it is, the more my wife seems to like it.
So it's our annual fight. I usually just avoid being around her when she plays that music (I'm doing that now). It helps keep the peace.
P.S.: This is one of the best pieces of music ever.
