I like when it's actually christmas time and it makes sense that I'm listening to this, not like all the rest of the year where I keep playing it on repeat and yet it's spring and perfectly sunny outside.
How serene. Meaning marked by or suggestive of utter calm and unruffled repose or quietude. Quite a bit different than sad which is affected with or expressive of grief or unhappiness. I would even go so far as to say that this music is warm, cuddly and full of a quiet assurance of happiness and fulfilment. I'm drinking the cocoa.
How amusing and true, ssiegel. This IS a terribly sad track, instrumental and vocal both. It's strangely heartbreaking. I was going to say that, though I love it, this track is one example of very sad Christmas songs, and really there are many. Perhaps one of the reasons why Christmas is so sad for some people is just how many truly sad Christmas songs there are.
