    What puts you in a holiday mood?

    The Christmas tree is up in Faneuil Hall. The Sugar Plum Fairy and the Mouse King are leaping across stage in Boston Ballet's "The Nutcracker." Peppermint mochas are on the menu at Starbucks.

    What puts you in a holiday mood? What do you see around Boston that fills you with holiday cheer?

    Re: What puts you in a holiday mood?

    Old style Christmas songs, not the modern ones get me in the mood for the holidays. Some people can't stand them but after being one of those people myself I have since learned to appeciate the once-and-awhile classics.

    I've started listening to them before Thanksgiving. It just seems odd that the radio will play them before Thanksgiving but end it to the minute when Christmas Day is over leaving you feeling "cut-off" from the holiday spirit and left with nothing up to New Years Eve.

    It would be nice to hear them while taking down the decorations afterwards. Less of a bummer.

    One word: SNOW

    Judging from the weather right now though- that won't be happening....

    Hearing Cheech & Chong's "Santa Claus & His Ol' Lady".

    Also, seeing my woman in her naughty-but-ohhh-soo-nice "Santa's Helper" outfit......Woo-Hooo!!!
