The Christmas season can be very hectic. People are running around buying this and that, baking holiday goodies, digging their cars out from under the snow.

Sometimes I get a bit wound up with all the hustle and bustle. That’s when I turn on the Christmas music and relax.

Listen to Kevin and I chat about Christmas tunes.


1. Listen and Read - Listen to the audio and read the dialog at the same time.

Dave:  I got up this morning and was listening to National Public Radio for a while, but I thought, ‘You know, it’s Christmas time, I need to feel a little bit more festive.’ So, I turned the radio dial to some Christmas tunes.

Kevin:  Oh, I don’t know how I feel about those stations.

Dave:  Really? You don’t like Christmas music?

Kevin:  Well, I like Christmas music, but I don’t know that I would just tune into a station. I mean, if I want to listen to it I’ll put on a CD.

Dave:  Yeah, I don’t have any CDs, though. You know, I’m kind of a cheapskate like that.

Kevin:  Well, we know that. I was in a friend’s car the other day and, sure enough, that’s what she put on. Oh, she was all excited.

Dave:  See, I like it, though. Christmas music really cheers me up.

Kevin:  It is, I mean, it is fun, it’s festive. You know, it, it’s nice to hear, but it’s not something I would tune into all day long.

Christmas music reminds me of being young, shaking Christmas presents beneath the tree. One of my favorite songs as a child was the children’s version of “Jingle Bells.” It’s still very popular among children.

Jingle Bells (Children’s Version)

Jingle bells, Batman smells
Robin laid an egg.
Lost its wheel
And Joker got away – Hey!

I like christmas music,which was very happy, and cheer me up. but there is no christmas tune in china, due to the culture background, actually, Many chinese people just look it as a chance to eat outside ,or gather each other.
