On Thanksgiving Day is when I finally get into the Christmas spirit and begin listening to holiday jams. I guess it all depends on how and when you celebrate giving thanks with your family. On my dad's side of the family, we would have our feast during lunchtime. But on my mom's side, they would have it in the evening. At my grandma's on my mom's side, they would always have Christmas jams in the background. But at my grandparents on my dad's side, the Dallas Cowboys game was always a must-see. Since hopping from family to family isn't a good thing means a lot of us will just be with our immediate family. My immediate family will be enjoying our Thanksgiving feast around dinner time and have National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation on in the background. But during the time we're all working on our own dishes separately we're listening to Christmas music.

There's nothing like listening to Christmas music while you and the family work on your Thanksgiving feast together. Well, on Thanksgiving and Christmas Day is when I am unfaithful to KLAQ and listen to another FM. The other FM is known for playing nothing but modern and classic Christmas tunes until the holidays come to an end. I personally prefer the old Christmas classics over the new modern Christmas jams. There is one place I can get my classic fix of Nat King Cole, Bing Crosby, Dean Martin, Ella Fitzgerald, Frank Sinatra, Burl Ives, John Lennon, The Beach Boys, and more. Now the place I can get my fix is listening to another station that plays a mix of my favorite classics. I always feel this guilty feeling for listening to another rival station other than my own during the holidays. Hopefully, I will still have my job by the time the bosses read this and know my dirty little secret.
