Dope or Nope

A local radio station, B-101, started playing Christmas music the day after Halloween. Now, I'm a big fan of Christmas, and I love getting into the Christmas spirit. But, I'm not sure if I like the idea of Christmas music playing on the radio before Thanksgiving.

I guess I feel like Thanksgiving gets ignored or forgotten because of this. And, I'm a big, big fan of Thanksgiving ... turkey, football, family, days off of work ... what's not to love?

So, why do we have to get this Christmas "spirit" pushed on us so soon? (Actually, some department stores started putting up Christmas decorations after Labor Day). I'm a big nope with this - what about you?

Agreed- it's OK to do this only after Thanksgiving (which isn't a great marketable holiday, so it gets ignored).

But hey, B101 wouldn't do this if it didn't get them more ratings/money, so it must mean that enough people are OK with this that it's worth doing.

NOPE... Christmas music is dreadful. The worst perhaps in the Christmas version of Iron Man. Instead of "I am Iron Man" it is "I am Santa Clause." That song seriously makes me want to punch something.

As you can probably attest, I'd prefer to hear Christmas music in February than November.
