I have played the guitar since high school, and that was a long time ago. Music has changed a lot since the late 60's, but there is one genre that remains fairly consistent year after year ... and that is holiday music.
Now before anyone chastises me and says that it's "Christmas" music, please understand that not all holiday music is Christmas music. As a matter of fact, most of the songs that we often associate with "Christmas" make no reference to Christmas at all!
Some common examples are "Jingle Bells. "Winter Wonderland" and "Frosty the Snowman" which make no reference to Christmas whatsoever. Most holiday revelers would also be surprised to note that "Deck the Halls" falls into that non-Christmas category and is actually based on a pagan ritual.
Even Christmas songs themselves fall into two subsets of holiday music, as there is both secular and religious music. This offers an ecumenical opportunity for a wide variety of celebrants with different religious affinities. Some might offer that it's the best of both worlds.
As for me, I prefer the more ancient carols in their original languages. "Adeste Fidelis," "Stille Nacht," and "In dulci Jubilo" are among my favorites.
Of course, those songs weren't all THAT old when I was in high school!
