About Me:

Hey everyone, I am Cathryn. I am going into my 5th year of pharmacy at Butler University. I am also working toward a minor in Science, Technology & Society! In my spare time, I enjoy hanging out with friends and writing. I've been working on NaNoWriMo and am hoping to be published at some point in the near future as well. Most of the time you can catch me studying in the library or browsing the Internet. Oh, and did I mention that I got married last summer?

Christmas Tunes Selections

Hi, everyone. I’m sure you’re all thrilled to realize that half of your city’s radio stations have switched to playing Christmas music 24/7, like undying beacons of perpetual holiday cheer. Most of you probably have a high tolerance for holiday music, maybe even have favorite songs. But there’s nothing like beating the dead horse of Christmas by having multiple radio stations blare “Santa Baby” like their lives depended on it.

I try to take Christmas music slow. I wait until Thanksgiving, and NO SOONER, with the intent of stretching my tolerance for jingle bells as long as possible. Around now, I’ve created a sort of frenzy, like the Nintendo Wii in Christmas ’07, or the McRib. All I want to do is listen to Christmas music. If I could effectively listen to Christmas music by playing it simultaneously on multiple mediums while also plucking out tunes on the piano, I would.

But I refrain.

Here are some of my favorites:

Sleigh Ride. In general. The Boston Pops and Ella Fitzgerald versions come to mind as my favorites. I must say that this is probably my favorite holiday-neutral song. (Note: I’m so tired that I typed in “Slay ride” for my Youtube video search.)

The Charlie Brown Christmas soundtrack. Anything on it is fabulous. I love me some jazz tunes.

Sugar Rum Cherry. I played this song when I was a horrible 3rd trombone in the audition jazz band in school. It stuck with me when I bought it on Martha Stewart’s Jazz for the Holidays.

Bruce Springsteen – Santa Claus is Coming to Town. Oh, you had to see this coming. I don’t like it because I like the song, but because I like the Boss. And this rendition makes the song bearable, if not enjoyable. I approve.

Those are a few of my favorite Christmas songs. By the way, my favorite Christmas movie? Elf. We watched it tonight. *checks off list of things to do*

I thought for sure a Google image search would award me a goofier picture. Alas.
