    i think about the only Christmas song i like is (come back Christmas baby),seems about the only holiday they cant ruin w/commercialism is thanksgiving. also if anyone wants to witness about the worst Christmas driving around, come to Austin TX. its bad enough all the rest of the year as it is.

    p.s. Austin is voted worst drivers in Texas every single year.

    You ain't kidding! Last night going home using the Florida Turnpike, seems that this idiot missed his exit so what does he do? It decides to shift to reverse in the right lane and try to back to the exit he missed. Forget that it was a curve, on wet pavement and a bunch of cars were coming. Only when three vehicles (mine included) ended up in the grass trying to avoid him and each other. Mr. Andretti Stupid reconsidered and decided to go forward again.

    Truthfully the Christmas Music by Mannheim Steamroller is really worth listening to.
    I love to play the various Mannheim Steamroller music at Christmas.
    If any of you have not ever heard of them then buy at least one.
    Any one. You'll get hooked!

    Their version of the Caroll of the Bells is fantastic.

    Didn't Christmas originally get shortened because the "X" was symbolic of the Cross?
    Just curious because I read that some place.

    And since SIXTO hates that "X" so much I'm calling him SI TO from now on.

    That's not just Christmas. Around here that's anytime any version of the frozen form of water falls from the heavens!

    It makes me real glad that I live in North Dakota. I was in the mall this week and the mall was playing a mix of the secular and the Sacred Christmas music. I guess I don't get why it's so threating to people that don't believe God exists, but I'm just a hick.

    I have to admit I used the "xmas" abbreviation today. I was doing sound at church for the preschool Christmas program, and to save the show on our digital board it limits you to 8 character filenames. Chrishow somehow didn't work as well as xmasprog.

    And yes, at least to me the x stands for the cross, but out of reverence I can take the extra half a second to write it out.

    Actually, 'Christ' in Greek (original language of the New testament) is written Xristos (transliteration, since I don't know how to find the actual Greek letters on my keyboard). So, it was often like using his initial.

    Just my thoughts.

    Huh. Interesting... but I think you might just be right about that.
