Christmas Carols

When did “My Favorite Things” become a Christmas Carol? It seems to have nothing to do with the season, except sometimes it has sleigh bells in the arrangement.

Also, it’s funny what one’s memory can toss up sometimes. I heard the first few bar of Jingle Bells in an instrumental version, and the first thing I thought of was “closer shave, closer shave.” I remember seeing that commercial as a kid (it always played during Rudolph) and not knowing what that device was that Santa was riding. I probably thought something like, Wow, Santa has a cool hovercraft.
