    When I lived in Hawaii FM station KUMU had a play list that always included a Hawaiian song in every third place. Two popular songs – one Hawaiian – two popular songs – one Hawaiian… One day a DJ suggested, “Please honk your horn if you are tired of hearing the Hawaiian music.” The complaints of those who were tired of them echoed throughout the streets of Honolulu. Fortunately, there is a new breed of Hawaiian performer crafting new tunes, most of which are easy to enjoy.

    Most Christmas music is like that earlier Hawaiian music: Too saccharin for my taste, especially when repeated ad nauseum in every store and public place beginning as soon as the Halloween ghosts retreat from the streets.

    Limit its playing for just one or two weeks around the actual holiday and I might begin to enjoy it again.

    Okay, now for those who expect it, “Bah, Humbug…”

      @jack43:disqus – I agree that Christmas Music gets over-played but I still mostly love it.
