I get hypnotized by Christmas music...


What is it about Christmas music that puts me in some kind of hypnotic trance?

I'm not kidding.

This is me.

I'm driving in my car, and it's like all of a sudden I think to myself, "Gosh Shelle, it's awful quiet". And it was. Absolute dead silence. I was on my way to wash my Pimp-mobile-van... (that's right, don't hate). So I turn on the power to the radio and on comes Christmas music and then...


I went into a Frankenstein trance

...and I come to-- 2 hours later with loads of crap in the back of my van and no memory of it...

Or that is what I'm telling my husband.

Santa is bringing Mama a new pair of pants and two shirts and some boots...

What about you guys? Does Christmas music have this effect on anybody else?

Love,

That would be an awesome excuse to buy stuff except that I absolutely lothe all things Christmas music. I blame this on WAY too many years working in retail when they start playing it WAY to early in the year. Whenever it comes on in the car I change it. Hmm maybe this will still work for me - I can say it clouded my mind - yeah thats good I'll use it!

I heart Christmas music and wish that it put me in some kind of hypnotic state to Shop! It usually gets me in the mood to bake cookies and eat everything in site!

Im using that excuse next time!

No, but it certainly does seem like something I can "reference" in the future. ya know what I'm saying, just incase mamma needs a new shirt, pants and boots

Nope. Not Christmas music. Just breasts.

I love Christmas music, but Dave Ramsey has cured me of any trance like behaviour involving shopping. Dang.

Christmas music usually gets me in the mood for a big mug of frothy hot cocoa with either a) lots of whipped cream or b) big marshmellows...ahhh! yum!

i too love christmas music, but listening to the same chipmunks song over and over and hearing the kid scream that she wants a hula hoop (like alvin) gets a little old. :)

Depends on the music. Kurt Bestor just makes me wanna curl up by the fire and drink hot chocolate. But Mariah and Celine make me wanna go wander around a mall and spend dollars. And Manheim just makes me wanna be with family:)

That's funny! I can't say it does that it does that for me. Though I do feel the urge to buy, it doesn't quite put me in the hypnotic state. Dang it!

Homer and Queen said...

I'm the same way and I buy the music like crazy! Anything and everything that has Oh Holy Night on it!

Christmas and shoe shopping. My most favorite words, with shoe topping the list.

If some NEW Christmas music ever came out, I think it would make it a bit more listenable. How many versions of Jingle Bell Rock can you actually hear?

Christmas music always puts me in a great festive mood. I tried putting Christmas music in our house in October, but was vetoed.

April said...

Hate shopping, love Christmas music. I started this year off with listening to the Forgotten Carols.

Sher said...

You know I love Christmas music. And shopping. Don't love the crowds at the mall this time of year though.

Oh gosh, thank you! Now I know what to tell my hubby when he finds out about the load of crap....er toys I bought the kids. :) Love the post.

YES! I just went into Bath and Body to get some plug-in refills, and walked out 15 minutes later with some Christmas decor and a $25.00 candle, as well as the plug-ins----arrggghh!
