For years, I have either played Christmas dinners with a low key mix of Christmas and regular songs in a 1/3 Christmas ratio. This year, our Cultural Center is have a "Holiday Party" dinner on the 23rd. I told the director that we had better raise the level above a Christmas mass.
The dinner will be from 3-5 PM. I have about 50 Christmas tunes, both vocal and instrumental, in most styles and tempos. Since I need about 40, I am unsure whether I should stay in Christmas 100%, or mix regular tunes in. On one hand, you break the mood, and on the other, people like variety. The age group is 50 and up.
