Christmas Music Before Txgiving?

Love me some xmas songs. Sitting at dungeon desk on cold , gray morning as my crew takes entries for Monday. Tired of summer playlist, tempted to dial up some rockin' sounds of season. Usually wait until late nov, sometimes dec 1.

How soon is too soon??

If you watch the TV ads, Christmas themes started just before Halloween this year. That used to not come until after Thanksgiving, it seems to get earlier every year. As for Christmas music I like the old stuff, I don't want to hear someone rap Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer. Give me some Bing Crosby, any day.

Thanksgiving sorta kicks off the holiday season so I'm okay with the music.
I missed out on Halloween candy. Jan. 31 would be an excellent do-over date.

I program the music in our restaurant. I think Im going to wait until Dec 15th this year. Last year we switched at Thanksgiving and I gotta tell youit got a little old.

It costs me $500 a year for the music service and it has 99% of what I look for. Rarely do I search for a song that they dont have.

Its the most commented on item that we have ever seen in our reviews etc. We get compliments every day.

The oldest song is Cab Calloways Minnie the Moocher and the newest is probably something from Michael Buble

There is no more Thanksgiving.
The White House celebrates Friendsgiving, because there is no God to thank.
