Musical Interludes: When Is A Christmas Song Not A Christmas Song?

It's getting to be that time of year. Christmas. The songs are going on endlessly in the malls, and people are thinking of unwrapping presents. We're thinking of unwrapping each other. We heard one of the familiar ones earlier... and it seems by listening to the lyrics... that it's not really a Christmas song. It does take into account spending time by the fireplace, which we always recommend, but is it a Christmas song or not? Listen to Old Blue Eyes and decide for yourself.


  1. At the very least, it's not Feliz Navidad.

  2. It's been considered a Christmas song because it's about snow: SNOW = WHITE CHRISTMAS.

  3. It's not the only Christmas song that's not a Christmas song ... but as is often the case, it's all about how people view it.
