Crazy--no way!

I have a little anecdote for you...

My mom works for a home health agency (schedules home visits, etc). She told me this evening that one of her nurses came in to the office and was talking about his patient. He said, "I think she's crazy because she was listening to Christmas music! She said it raises her spirits and makes her feel better (AMEN!)." I told mom that she should have told him that her daughter (me) listens to it this early too and she's not crazy. She didn't say anything. I said, "You didn't tell him that I do it too, did you? You didn't want him to think I was crazy!" She nodded, laughing.

MY MOM THINKS I'M CRAZY! Not really, but she does not understand why I get in to it so early. I guess some people just don't and I respect that, but calling those of us who do "crazy" is a little harsh!

On another note, I think it's great that an elderly person can have their spirits lifted and feel better just from listening to Christmas music.

Yes, music is very powerful and nothing more uplifting than Christmas carols.

I agree it is great that the woman is listening and having her spirit lifted listening to Christmas music.

Alright!!!!!!

Christmas music is very inspirational, that's why I love to listen My mom is actually not a very big Christmas person, but she has gotten to like it a little more over the years...more so than when I was younger. One year she didn't have a tree so the kids and I went to buy her a small tree and ornaments, and also included some of the kids ornaments. We showed up at her door with a tree delivery and the kids and I helped her decorate ..she has never forgotten that! I think that may have been the year it got turned around for her.

Sorry for getting off subject!

To paraphrase Albert Einstein... only people who listen to the exact same Christmas song over and over again and expect different lyrics each time are crazy.

Did you know if you play Holly Jolly Christmas backwards at a slower speed you can hear Rudolph saying "I buried Blitzen"..?
