Musical Holidaze

Holidaze are stressful and Christmas music doesn’t always help. It seems that Christmas music starts getting played everywhere far too soon… sometimes right after Halloween! While there will be a sporadic new holiday album released, it often includes another version of the same Christmas song(s) we hear repeated every year. Does anyone listen to this music outside of the holiday season?

Bah, humbug! I admit it! I am not much of a holiday music fan. In fact, when I’m out and about I try to tune it out because I definitely don’t want a Christmas song stuck in my head. Maybe I am not alone on that (or maybe I’m actually The Grinch).

Regardless, some amusing local holiday traditions are built around Christmas music. This December, many local bands and artists are spreading holiday cheer with entertaining musical events even for those who, like me, are not Christmas music enthusiasts. Local musicians and listeners have fun with it so I cannot hate on Christmas music that’s live and local!

Whether you like Christmas music or not, below are some holiday events you may want to stick on your radar. There are local music holiday events all month long so have some spirits, get in the spirit, and have fun! If you missed out, there will be another opportunity next year when the holidaze roll back around.
