I mostly love the Christmas season.

But our local oldies station has officially gone to its All Christmas Music format, until December 26th.  Six weeks of Christmas music?  Over 10% of the year?!?  That's a bit much.  I'm all for getting into the Christmas Spirit, but not until after Thanksgiving for me thanks (Thanksgiving is my favorite of the holidays).

The station I'm stuck listening to at work starts their X-mas marathon Friday.  Looks like I'll be breaking out the iPod when the boss isn't around and tuning everything out when the boss is here.

You have music playing at work over the PA or something? I'd hurt someone, Christmas music or not.

We have a radio, and the bossman insists on it being on the same station (it's not a bad station, mostly '80s and above music) and the one time I did change it I had to listen to him piss and moan for the rest of the day after he changed it back.

I <3 Christmas, and for the most part, I think the Xmas craze around my area is actually much later this year than last-last year it was starting seriously right after Halloween-while this  year its almost Thanksgiving and I am still seeing suprisingly little Xmas stuff going around. either way, by far my favorite holiday of the year.

We're actually decorating this weekend.  Insane, I know, but it's not so much that we want to do it now but we do like to have the house decorated by Thanksgiving since we always host my wife's family  on turkey day.  We do wait until the first week of December to put up outside decorations, though.

Funny you mentioned this, as 'Carol of the Bells' just started playing from my co-workers office.

Yeah, it's too damn early.

Are you in Raleigh by any chance?  93.9 (I think) has been playing X-mas music nonstop since the beginning of November.

My store (grocery store in Arizona) has had giant ass Christmas balls (throwing snow and whatnot) up since SEPTEMBER FIRST.

THAT is way too fucking early for what should otherwise be a joyful season.

1 of my local stations went Christmas Music officially, about 3 weeks ago.....  saywhat

Looks like everyone is trying to make October the start of Christmas. I have a nagging suspicion it is the greedy fucking retailers conspiring to do it.   No problem here, I do *ALL* of my Xmas shopping over the summer so I don't have to deal with nonsense crowds and turbo-mean people in rushes.

Boston area -- 103.3 here...

All this talk reminds me that last year a local grocery store did put up a big inflatable Christmas Globe inside before Halloween.  They took it back down within the week -- I'm wondering if too many people asked, 'what??', or if one of the teen employees confused the Christmas inflatable with a Thanksgiving one...

Great - my radio station that I wake up to (and do little else with, as I prefer my Sirius radio) just started Christmas music today. Normally they wait until Thanksgiving.
