I'm loving it! I was so thrilled to find out the Chicago station had started. Between that and the Christmas movies on cable, I'm in holiday heaven!

The Christmas season is so short. If you wait until after Thanksgiving you only get 3-4 weeks to enjoy it. I have no problem starting earlier.

I also have no real attachment to Thanksgiving--to me it's just an annoying blip on the way to Christmas. I try to work on gratitude all year round, so all I get from Thansgiving is a sink full of dishes and heartburn.

I think it is too early. I wait until at least the day after Thanksgiving to start with Christmas. Except for shopping, I do that year round. And the outside lights - they are up pretty much year round.

Sirius/XM have started as of today. Our local radio station won't start playing Christmas music until the day before Thanksgiving (I believe, since they did that last year).

That's what motivated me to get Satellite radio 5 years ago. My favorite station started playing Christmas music 24/7 way too early for my liking.

To me the official start of the Christmas season is when Santa's sleigh ends the Macy's Thanksgiving Day parade. And, except for the end of that parade, NO Christmas or holiday music until the day after Thanksgiving!

Little too early for me. I like my holidays in order. I hate it when I go into the stores in October and see Christmas decorations, by the time Christmas actually gets here it's not special. I enjoy fall and Thanksgiving. I like Macy's thanksgiving day parade and seeing Santa at the end. So I wait until Black Friday to start the calendar.

I agree! I enjoy the music and 4 weeks is just too short. I also get depressed that they stop playing it the day after Christmas.....at least play it through New Years!

We also put most of our outside stuff out yesterday but we also don't light it til Black Friday. It was just so beautiful and WARM out we had to do it. It stinks putting out lights when you cannot feel your fingers!

I try to spread all my holiday stuff out so as to not get too stressed out during December. Gives us a chance to really enjoy the Holiday season!

I have the AOL Christmas "Oldies" station blasting right now.

One of our local radio stations usually starts playing on the Monday during the week before Thanksgiving. I turned the station on this morning and was disappointed to hear the soft rock programming.

I am trying to do some deep cleaning for the upcoming holidays and it just seems better with Christmas music playing

That is my complaint, too. They rush the season then close it down when it is still happening. Kind of like when they put bathing suits out in the spring and by August you can't even find one!
My next complaint is the kind of music the stations play. They are sooo unimaginative and keep playing the same sad stuff. When I hear "Christmas Comes Each Time This Year" by the Beach Boys I want to scream! Why can't they include some jazz and classical, and how about some Christian Christmas music? There is some great music out there and I am shocked that the stations rely on the exact same tunes each year.

Yep. Or the song "Dear, Mr. Jesus". Seriously?!? How is that a Christmas Song?
