I think maybe it has a lot to do with memories of past Christmas’s. If you had lots of good ones while a child and also thru your growing up years, and your personality or general make-up leans toward being a generous person, then the sounds of this time of year might invoke a spirit of good feelings. Just a thought. I say this because I have some friends who really struggle at this time of year because of memories of bad, or traumatic things that have happened thru the years at Christmas time. It’s all they can do just to get thru it and music does nothing to alleviate those feelings. I also believe one’s faith has something to do with it. Again, just a thought.
