Ever since pharmacy school, the Appropriate Time to listen to Christmas music (after Thanksgiving-beyond) has been marred by a rush of clusters and finals. We have clusters the first week back from break, a week of classes, and then finals. It is not a time to feel happy and joyful in the season of giving. It is a time of no sleep, catatonia, and junk food.
I made the executive decision to listen to Christmas music early this year. Because I want to enjoy it. A month just isn’t long enough when 3 weeks of it is squandered on the panic of the end of the semester.
To my delight, I discovered today on Spotify that ZOOEY DESCHANEL HAS A CHRISTMAS ALBUM.
It’s so good I’m going to buy it. Then one day, I might get the CD player fixed in my car so I can blast it on Binford Blvd as I tend to do with all music I like.
I know it’s not Halloween yet and some of you may see me as a heretic, but I can’t tell you how good her version of The Christmas Waltz is. It just is.
