Christmas Albums

I'm prejudiced against Christmas albums because they tend 1) to be so sentimental you want to throw up, and 2) to focus on tunes you've so familiar with you want to kill yourself. However, if your relatives insist on listening to "music of the season" in December, you may want to minimize your suffering. Or maybe you really do want to hear another version of "The Little Drummer Boy." In any case, the most important point to remember: buy Christmas CD's any time before Thanksgiving, because that's when stores jack up the prices. You can get the same music for half the price, or less, if you pick it up in the spring or summer. (DBW)
