Veterans Like Christmas Music Too

There seems to be a little uproar over Christmas music being played before Veteran’s Day/Remembrance Day.  As one veteran friend of mine said, “What’s the big deal?  Veterans like Christmas music too!”.

Apparently some feel playing Christmas music before these holidays is “disrespectful” to veterans.  I’m not sure how hearing “Silent Night” or “Deck The Halls” is disrespecting anyone currently in or formerly of the military.  Does anyone remember the Christmas Truce of 1914 where, if only briefly, both sides stopped fighting to celebrate Christmas?  I don’t think any of them felt it was disrespectful!

I think for the complainers it’s just their way of holding off playing Christmas music until the very last moment.  If these people had their way, they wouldn’t play Christmas music until, well, CHRISTMAS!

Well, for anyone who agrees to not play Christmas music (or put up decorations) until after Veteran’s Day/Remembrance Day, you only have until next Tuesday to keep bitching.

Then it’s CHRISTMAS ALL THE WAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!





I'm a writer. I'm also a wife and a parent who works too much and lives too little. In addition to writing I also love to read, listen to music, travel, cook, I enjoy looking for bargains at flea markets or thrift stores, Christmas, football and of course writing! How did I come up with the title of my blog? Two things: 1. I live in New England (duh) and 2. Canadian singer Alan Frew once arrogantly told me to "get a New England life"--again--DUH! I already HAVE one!

Tell me what you think!
