STRATEGY THIRTY - SIXThe Christmas Song as Plot Devices
It would seem that the best Christmas songs have all been written: There's nothing new to be said about chestnuts and eggnog and snowflakes and tinsel and reindeer and carols and Saint Nick. The standards have said it all. Yet, every year, come late November, new Christmas songs hit the airwaves to make their bid for public acceptance.
Despite the limitations of the subject, inventive songwriters seem to find a fresh approach, a new angle, an untried scenario, yet another way to say “It's Christmastime once more.”
