    I used to like the Charlie Brown Christmas show but after all these years, all the peanuts videos are less appealing to me. I like anything by TSO myself. After them, Manheim Steamroller is good too.

    I heard that Christmas was cancelled this year. :)

    If the long range weather forecast is correct, Christmas might be cancelled in this part of the country because they are predicting a nice winter storm lasting 3 days at Christmas.

    I'm with you guys on TSO. We used to go see them live every year... then kids, house, life etc. About time to take the kids to see them next year.

    The first time I took my current GF to see them, she was cool to the thought at first. She's not really into Classical music. When I gave her ear plugs and told her to be sure to bring her sunglasses, she began to rethink. Afterward, she wanted to go again. She said she didn't think it would be so uplifting.

    I play the Charlie Brown Christmas LP every year on my old GE record player. You cannot get that old scratchy sound out of a CD or download anywhere.

    Its funny... my kids (12 and 14) always liked the classics much more so than the new stuff... they say they the old stuff (Bing Crosby, Dean Martin, and yes the Vince Guraldi, etc) has so much more of a "Christmasy" feel to it. They're not just pop music with some jingle bells in the background (which is how most of the newer stuff comes across to me).

    So interesting to hear them say that since the music was produced so many decades before they were born. I feel the same way, but I literally grew up with those songs, so it could simply be nostalgia and familiarity that drives my preferences.

    But with my kids they get pretty much equal exposure to both and still have the preference for the classics.
