Miller: In Summit County, the herald angels keep quiet

This is now my third Christmas season living in Summit County, my second living in Breckenridge. It is a great place to live, but there is one thing this time of year that really bothers me: the lack of Christmas music. Where I’m from in East Tennessee, there is a radio station that plays nothing but Christmas music starting on Thanksgiving Day and continuing through Christmas. The other radio stations there will at least mix in Christmas songs with their non-holiday playlist. Every store you go to will be playing the sounds of the season. But here in Summit County, I hear hardly any Christmas music. In fact, I don’t think I’ve heard a single Christmas song on the radio yet this season. I also have not heard any holiday music at Breckenridge Ski Resort, where I work on weekends; instead, they’re just playing pop/rock or reggae. I think the only time I have heard Christmas music this season is occasionally while shopping. I don’t know about anyone else here in Summit County, but to me, Christmas just isn’t the same without the music, and I would like to encourage the local radio stations, resorts, and stores to play some, at least once in a while this holiday season.
