How early is too early...

To start listening to Christmas music? I used to hate Christmas music of all kinds. I decided that this was decidedly Scrooge-like behavior and need to be dealt with head on.

I began to listen to all kinds of Christmas music and soon began to like it. I think the way to go is to listen to Christmas albums from people you already like. If you try to listen to Kenny G's Christmas album you aren't going to like it, but that isn't the music's fault...it's Kenny G's.

The question I have now is how early is too early to break out the Christmas music. I'm thinking right after Halloween is too early, but I don't want to wait until after Thanksgiving. If you wait until after Thanksgiving don't even bother. That gives you what? Four weeks of Christmas music. Too few, far too few.

I'm thinking the second week of November sounds good, maybe a tad earlier. We'll see.

I think the day after Thanksgiving is perfect. Then, it's ONLY Christmas music until Christmas Day.

I think it's the perfect amount.
