What triggers your festive mood? I've just got back from a carol service with Wigston where we play in the tiny church of a tiny village in Leicestershire. I've done this job for years, and I never feel at all "Christmassy" until I've played at this particular Carol service. I don't know why this is - maybe its the atmosphere as we cram into the little church and the sherry and mince pies afterwards are great too. But until I've done that job it doesn't feel like Christmas to me. So I wonder what is it that finally makes you feel "yeah this is Christmas" - it doesn't have to be a band job, just an event or something that flicks the switch to make you feel festive.
