    I don't listen to the radio much, so I can't really comment on that. But I have noticed that it's the season to have uncreative episodes of every TV show, first with a Thanksgiving episode then a Christmas episode, and often both include Christmas songs.

    Like Daniel, I don't listen to the radio very often. And I don't like to watch TV either.
    Also, I can't help not liking this part of the year. It's dark, it's cold, people close their doors and stay inside, I often catch a cold in december, everybody all of a sudden starts to believe in things / start to do things that they don't care about during the rest of the year...
    Of course, I don't blame anyone who has special feeling about Christmas. (I almost wish I had them myself; but I hate the bells).
    I'm more of a springtime kind of person. In the spring the light comes back, the days are longer, there's renewal of life and a long summer ahead.
    I'm not complaining, though.

    Don't get me wrong - it's not like I have mushy feelings about Xmas but i do look forward to it because for my family it provides a few weeks of brightness amidst several difficult years. I like all seasons though.

    Carol of the bells is one of my faves

    Beverleyh, I don't know of course what bad luck struck your family, but I sincerely hope you and your family will have a happy Xmas time.

    The time of the year is nice in real life. (But it's not all that entertaining on TV, I must say. Yet considering that, the Big Bang Theory did a good job if they had to do an xmas episode.)

    I'm not sure about other shows, but the last episode of Red Dwarf series X was excellent.

    Was that an xmas episode? I'm not saying all TV is bad at the moment, just the specific xmas/thanksgiving episodes that are for some reason so popular (does anyone actually like them?).

    No it wasn't, so fair enough.
    I think the guys bringing in the cash like them.

    Cash? Perhaps-- my theory is that it's a lazy way for the writers to not actually write an episode-- the holidays are a pre-written formulaic plot just waiting for a camera
