When do you like to start listening to Christmas music? « on: November 04, 2018, 10:39:09 PM » Author: CEB1993
Hi everyone, here's an interesting question: When do you like to begin hearing Christmas music?  I admit, I'm one of those people who starts playing it November 1st haha!  Radio stations seem to begin playing Christmas songs earlier and earlier each year.  Even though I like jumping into Christmas music early, I still take time to enjoy Thanksgiving, too.  It's important to me to spend time with my family, eat delicious food, and reflect on all the good things to be thankful for earlier in the year  :)  The whole Christmas season is just as fun as Christmas day to me.  Here's some of my favorite Christmas songs:

Little Saint Nick- The Beach Boys
Blue Christmas- Elvis
White Christmas- Bing Crosby
Deck the Halls- Mannheim Steamroller
Christmas Canon- Transiberian Orchestra
Mele Kalikimaka- Jimmy Buffett
Feliz Navidad- Jose Feliciano

I play in a concert band. We start practicing Christmas songs the second week of September so we are ready for a Christmas concert at the end of November/beginning of December.

Recordings, not really before December 1st. Same goes for decorations. I find too many people start way too soon, and by Christmas time, you're tired of looking at it.

I start listening to it sometime in October (like around 50% Christmas/50 % non-Christmas)
From beginning of November its pretty much all Christmas.

I haven't noticed it playing yet, but probably after Thanksgiving is when I'd start listening to it. Like sol said, I wouldn't want to hear it too early, because I tend to get tired of it after a while. About 2-3 weeks would be enough for me.

Plus I saw Christmas decorations for sale in stores around the time the Halloween decorations came out, in late September/October.

When i worked in an warehouse, we used to listen radio while working; from 1st of November until 25 December, most of radio station were transmitting Christmas music all day; try to imagine my nauseated expression on 24 December, when they were transmitting for the millionth time the same songs (every year).
Fortunately, now i work in an office where we listen only metal!  ;D

Can't say I'm all that keen on it then, either..! Christmas has been commercialised to (...) and back, for most people it's just an excuse to eat and drink too much and spend too much money. It seems to have very little to do with the birth of Christ any more  :-\

Apart from carols and stuff (in church please, not the supermarket) the only really good Christmas song for me is 2000 miles by The Pretenders.

Oh, and this.

I started listening to it this week, on the radio. It started playing just after Thanksgiving but I waited two weeks so hopefully I won't get too tired of it before the holiday.

I like a lot of the instrumental music and classic songs, but they're not something I could listen to all year. Yet I they're meant to be either.

I work at my local mall and they started playing Christmas music before Thanksgiving so I'm starting to get tired of it now lol. And they also have the kids come in from the elementary schools and sing Christmas carols in the food court so my mind is nothing but continuous Christmas music  ::) . But I don't mind it on Christmas day.
