The Christmas blues...
Christmas can be a melancholy time, and we all suffer from the blues at some time or other, but this weekend I had them really bad for some reason.
I was in a local 99p store getting some last minute decorations and things. the store was playing Christmas music. Firstly '10,000 miles' by the Pretenders; then 'Silver Bells' by Elvis. Suddenly, I felt very depressed; even though those songs didn't hold any particular associations for me. I wonder why that was? I'm feeling better now.
What gives you the Christmas blues? And how do you get over them?
So let the raucous sleigh bells jingle,
Hail our dear old friend kris kringle,
Driving his reindeer across the sky.
Don't stand underneath when they fly by.
