And Christmas has officially begun…before Halloween night

We’ve all seen the Christmas trees and ornaments already out on the store shelves, but who has heard Christmas music on the radio yet? I have!

WGTS 91.9 here in Washington D.C. was playing Christmas music on my short drive to the metro this morning (I drive Tuesdays and Wednesday so I can get to class more quickly).

You know, I enjoy Mercy Me‘s rendition of “We Three Kings”, but it’s not even November yet! Seriously, why do I need to be in the Christmas spirit 2 months early? Why don’t we have a year-long Christmas music station? Well, at least it’s a mix from the same 10 songs they usually play every day (which I’ve emailed them about already).

Merry Christmas!

  • I grew up not celebrating Christmas. Last year was actually the first time I ever celebrated it.

    That said, I totally get into all the festivities and have half my Christmas shopping done already. This year, I really want to decorate a tree!

    The one thing I absolutely cannot stand is Christmas music. I think it is downright obnoxious. My first job out of high school was in a grocery store and when Dec. 1 rolled around, there was no escape from 8 hour shifts of Christmas music.

  • I had “It’s the most wonderful time of the year” stuck in my head this weekend. I think, however, that’s because Micah was singing some twisted version of it, probably involving the phrase “your mom” a lot. :-p

    One of my friends has the rule that October = Christmas music, so she started last month. My family’s rule was that it started in December, along with the advent calendar.

    Someday Christmas will push itself so far back that it’ll rebound back to center. I guess. I hope.

  • Yesterday, that radio station (91.9) stated that they were playing Christmas music to remind everyone of the spirit of giving. I guess they were saying that we need to give to others every day, not just when the holiday strikes us. But at the same time, I wondered if they were playing it just because it was a pagan holiday (Halloween), even though there is religious connotation to November 1st? Who knows…
