Subject: RE: Depressing Christmas
Tim - I appreciate the enthusiasm for Cape Breton and Newfoundland music you've shown in other threads and I get the idea that we share a lot of common interests in those areas. But I cannot stomach your idea for a Suicidal Christmas CD. It hits too close to home. I am living with a suicidal wife for who has had a tough time with the last 20 Christmases due to her inability to deal with society's and business' expectations for a big show at Christmas. It's taken a long time and a lot of effort to get her to relax, cut down the amount of work and expense and return Christmas to our home and family where it belongs. I for one will never buy that CD.
