Nice.
Now, how about the cassette of Mickey's Christmas all around the world as it's coming up to the festive season ;D

I've been celebrating Christmas. I've been putting some Christmas CDs on iTunes (w/ Apple Lossless). So far, my favorite song is Brett James's rendition of "What Child Is This". Christmas from the 90s is pretty upbeat, too.

Sleigh bells ring...are ya listenin'...in the lane...snow is glistenin'...

At least I'm not the only one. :-
 
I am on the band wagon too with you guys about Christmas. I went shopping for some Christmas ornaments this weekend. I always have to listen to my Harry for the Holidays CD by Harry Connick Jr. before the end of October. I have already started some early Christmas shopping, and I am getting my picture together for my Christmas card. "It's The Most Wonderful Time of the Year!" Now for some Disney Christmas music!

Er, I started my Christmas in early August by buying some tree ornaments from the Christmas shop on DLRP (we do that every year) ;D
Just that (for us in the UK) we have Halloween and Bonfire night (Nov 5th) as a diversion.
All the shops here have their Christmas wares on sale in September!
Easter eggs appear around January :eek:
 
I thought it was bad here in the US when they have valentine's stuff and easter stuff sitting side by side on the shelves. Looks like you guys are ahead of us! There is some Christmas stuff out in some stores here already, but the majority will be overlaoding on it after Halloween is over. Halloween is very big here with kids and adults, so they really market it about as much as Christmas here.

Halloween has never really been "big" over here - mainly just turnip-heads (now pumpkins are being used) and roasted chestnuts, bobbing for apples and the like.
However, it is getting more "American" now with lots of stuff covering your tradition of "trick or treat" (unheard of in my childhood )although it's not really catching on (compared to what I see in US films) and we rarely get more than one or two kids at the door - and they have their parents with them (not in costume).
Parties are getting big though - in clubs as well as homes - with people dressing up in costumes etc.
The churches are not too happy though - many have their own kids parties with no ghosts in sight (OK, maybe the Holy one).
I think many still like to see it as we see your Thanksgiving - a harmless American thing, best kept there ;D
I do enjoy watching the Disneyland stuff about it though and really enjoyed the DLRP evening a few years back (when it was confined to just one evening - Disney Hotels guests only - no general Public).
Great fun.
 
Happy Bonfire Day (Nov 5th), Eyore! -quickly looks and finds no Disney music related to Guy Fawkes- ;)

I suppose you could listen to "Wishes"

On bonfire night, we stay in and watch the last 16 years of the DLRP fireworks on DVD and then the US ones.
No public displays here come anywhere near those! ;D
After seeing the various Disney displays, the fireworks we can afford to buy are, to say the least, disappointing.
