Christmas Traditions and Music

I’m a fan of this time of year. The immediate permission for nostalgia and tradition are a couple of my favorite things. This inclination is amplified by both my boys growing old enough to understand and anticipate some “Christmas” things.

This picture caught my attention: (It comes fromĀ http://xkcd.com/988/)

Questions I have:

  1. Why aren’t there “Christmas Classics” in more recent years?
  2. Do we see a similar tradition-tilt toward any specific generation in other arenas in life (like church)?
  3. Is Christmas (for so many of us) hardly much more than a celebration of our own childhood rather than about the Advent of King Jesus?

…I wonder.
