It’s Christmas

Christmas to me is just another day off, its significance nowhere near that of the New Year’s Eve. But I do enjoy the musical component of the holidays, with all those Winter Wonderland, Let It Snow and Jingle Bells songs constantly on air. Hell, I sing along to Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer every time I hear it.

But growing up where I did, Christmas-themed songs were not in frequent circulation. Which is why it’s a little wonder that the melody I find most often stuck in my head during the season is the following ditty by Modern Talking, definitely the very first song with the word “Christmas” in it that I became aware of in my youth.

The lyrics are so stupendously daft, it’s not even funny, but the melody is quite nice. Am I mistaken in thinking that the chorus very much resembles another well-known Christmas song?

    You’re not mistaken at all. The chorus is about two notes off from John Lennon’s “Happy Xmas (War Is Over).”

    Happy Xmas, to you and your family!
