Sometimes I really don’t get why people like to argue over how certain songs or how things like Christmas trees are “secular” and shouldn’t be used. I, for one, love all the little things we tend to associate with Christmas (except Santa Claus – the concept amuses me, but that’s about it). From an aesthetic point of view, they’re nice to see and interesting to work with. And anyway, it’s definitely better to hear the jazzy, brassy instrumentals of Christmas music in shopping malls as opposed to… Some of the other stuff one gets at other times of the year. Heh.
