Why No New Christmas Songs? Posted By: locomotivebreath1901 12/14/2012 11:55:00 AM locomotivebreath1901, by lb1901 Original Article
That´s a question put forth by blogger Cylar over at Rotten Chestnuts. And it´s a good question, one with no easy answer, yet if one does ponder it, the answer does hold an explanation to our fractured secular society, and changing cultural landscape.
I read some good comments under that post which touched on ‘why are there no new Christmas songs?’ Yet most merely describe the symptoms and not the cause. I think the answer is very simple: Nobody wants them. There are cultural reasons and commercial reasons, to be sure, but why are these the reasons?
