Just Hear Those…

Christmas carols.  Some of our local radio stations began playing only Christmas music before people had even purchased a Thanksgiving turkey.  Why?!

About half of the Christmas songs played drive me nuts:  Jolly Old St. Nicholas, Sleigh Ride, Have a Holly, Jolly Christmas (if the song doesn’t make you shoot yourself first), Blue Christmas (really?!), O Christmas Tree (“how lovely are your branches”?!  weird!).  Who wrote those anyway?!

Look, I have nothing against Christmas music.  I adore Christmas and even have some favorite carols:  O Come, O Come Emanuel, Silent Night, White Christmas, Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas (really, one of the saddest songs ever).  However, enough with stores selling Christmas un-necessaries before Halloween, and enough with radio stations blasting Christmas music before Thanksgiving.

Christmas is in December, where it belongs, as do the carols.  Let’s show some love to the other holidays already.
