Some of us, myself included, are up for spreading cheer at ANY TIME during the year. What better pick me up is there than the warm and uplifting lyrics of holiday tunes? Especially since retailers have us thinking about the holidays IMMEDIATELY after Halloween these days.
Christmas music is okay by some people well in advance of Black Friday. Understandably, others feel that there is a specified time period in which listening to it is socially acceptable; a line that is NOT to be crossed until the time is right.
So internally we set our differences aside and agree to disagree. And so it goes. The eternal debate carries on. Must we wait until AFTER Thanksgiving to begin playing holiday tunes? Is just ONE month long enough for holiday music, or could you tolerate Jingle Bells during any season?
