Call me crazy but...


On Saturday I was being tortured. Tortured I say. "Make it stop." I cried. "Make it stop or I'm going to throw up." And I was quite serious. Christmas music assaulted me from the car radio. Christmas music in November. I couldn't stomach it. The sound offended my senses, causing me to consider throwing myself from our speeding vehicle just to get away from it. "The audacity of some DJs." I thought. Christmas music in November. The nerve.
.
But today, just a few short days later...
.
I made school lunches to a lovely serenade of "Santa Baby", "Winter Wonderland", and "O Holy Night" and beamed, "I LOVE Christmas music. It's my favorite part of the holidays."
.
What can I say?
Today's December first.
And that changes everything.

You would love Ham. Yesterday I was listening to Christmas music on the way to pick up the kiddos from school and he kept screaming for me to turn it off...and today he was fine with it.

I think you just put into words what everybody else has been thinking.

I'm ok with it...as soon as Thanksgving is over! I LOVE Christmas music! But then, if we played it year-round, it wouldn't seem so special.

Too true. I'm okay with the music starting once Santa makes his appearance at the end of the Macy's Day Parade. Prior to that, it gets a groan.

Your too funny! We put our tree up over a week ago. But I hate to say I haven't taken my thanksgiving stuff down yet... So I have a mixture of both!!

Try Halloween night it starts here :(. Now I'm into it too since it's December 2.

For real, give Thanksgiving and Halloween some breathing room.

Me too! Christmas music before December 1st annoys me. I don't want to hear it before then. Once December hits, it is one of my favorite things!
