Why Almost All Christmas Music Is From the 1940s and 1950s

While every successful singer eventually does a Christmas album, which may have a single, they are mostly cover versions of earlier Christmas hits. And you can’t beat an original. The most familiar, comforting songs of the season come from the 1940s and ‘50s. The reasons for that have to do with the epic changes in how we consume music and entertainment in the middle of the 20th century. After those Christmas classics were introduced and became classics, any new version of the same song just seems unnecessary. (via Digg)
