Christmastime

“We watch the children playing
Beside the christmas tree
The presents are wrapped up
It’s beautiful and secretly the gifts still hide
The fun awaits for you inside

Christmastime has come
There’ll be toys for everyone
‘Cause christmastime has come for you

I remember dreaming
Wishing hoping praying for this day
Now I sit and watch them
The little ones I love so excited by the wait

Christmastime has come
There’ll be toys for everyone
‘Cause christmastime has come for you

And now the word is given
It’s time to peek inside
It’s time to let the toys out
So anxious for your look of joy and delight
Waiting for just your surprise

Christmastime has come
There’ll be toys for everyone
‘Cause christmastime has come for you”

– “Christmastime” by Smashing Pumpkins

I got into the Christmas spirit this weekend.  I put my 3GB of Christmas music on my iPod on Friday, put up the Christmas tree on Saturday, and went to a Christmas concert tonight at church.  I get really annoyed by the commercialism that has come to represent the holiday and have become hesitant to “get into it” for the past few years…but there always comes a point where I get into the Christmas spirit…in the Christian sense.

I should be in bed…

  1. Ugh. I never put any Christmas music on the iPod, because then it shows up in shuffle all the rest of the year when I really, really don’t want to hear it.

    I’ve been listening to soma.fm’s Christmas in Frisco. Anyone found any other good streaming radio holiday music?

  2. That was my problem, too. I discussed it with Junior for a little while and decided to mass-edit the Genre tag to Christmas, so that I can easily remove it all from my library in 4-5 weeks.
