I love Christmas music. To tell you the truth I am really looking forward to Christmas a lot this year. It really makes me happy. I have even been thinking about decorating already.

I do not go and specifically listen to Christmas music but it is nice as a background music like when shopping, or when looking out of the window and seeing snow falling down. But other than that when I turn the radio on, I usually switch channels if that channel is playing 24 hours Christmas music.

I heard it playing at walmart the other day.

I start playing it on Thanksgiving or the day after when we decorate. I love Christmas. And my favorite all time movie is White Christmas!

Theres a station here in the Savannah, GA area thats playing Christmas music already 24 hours a day. I went to get my hair cut the other day and I heard it in the salon, my hairstylist said they started playing in on the 1st of November. I couldnt stand to listen to it for that long. Thats just too long.

I don't celebrate Xmas so not to sound like Scrooge or anything but to be constantly bombarded by Xmas music from Halloween to New Years Eve is a bit much for me.

There are numerous stores in Times Square that are fully decked out trees and all already.

Gee I wonder if its for the spirit or the bucks?

K-Mart, woo hoo!! I can't wait-this is my very first Christmas tree in my very first apartment! I get excited over little things, can you tell!?

There's a radio station in my area that is playing Christmas stuff and ONLY Christmas stuff. I've got it tuned at work and in my car!!!!

I know it sort of overshadows Thanksgiving, but well the music is cheerful, spiritual, upbeat, nostalgic (I just adore hearing Burl Ives sing "Silver & Gold"!!!)... and I think everyone could get into the spirit a little early.

I'm not a 'christmas' kinda gal - but I do love listening to Christmas music. Mind you, not until December thank you!

I don't listen to it until Dec. 6th, generally. But, it's Christmas in my house from Dec. 6 to Jan. 6 ^.^ My mom is RC, so I guess that's why! I can telly ou, I'm eager to decorate for christmas this year, last year our apartment was too small to have a real tree anywhere but in the kitchen. This year I'm having 2! Our table tree outside, and our real one inside LOL

When I was working we were forced to endure "Christmas Musak"!!
I tell you I'm not going to EVER miss listening to that crap!!
So I didn't really listen to much Christmas Music due to that. I don't have alot of Christmas CD's either but my fav's-Boston Pops Christmas, Manhein Steamroller, Christmas with the Academy (and Chorus of St Martin in the Field). Can you tell I like more instrumental stuff!!

Maybe for an hour or so. But after I've heard 3 different versions of Frosty the Snowman, I'm done! A couple years ago I turned the radio on while I was making cookies, but the repetition about drove me up the wall. Plus, since I'm not religious, I prefer the songs about Santa and reindeer to the more religious songs. I have a big stack of CDs that I listen to most of the time anyways, and this year I also have iTunes and a high speed connection!

I already started listening to it

We put our tree up already but that's because we have no where to store it

I was reading in the paper last weekend that Christmas music triggers our spending relfexes and actually makes people want to go shopping and buy presents. (I don't know who did the study, but there might be something to it.)

I find some truth to that!!

The grocery store around here was already playing it a week or two before Halloween.

Yeeeeah. I like my holidays to stay in their months, thank you.

Besides, after my stint at a cookie shop, where we had to listen to carols 24/7 for a month and a half, so that I could quite easily sing along to the whole playlist because you would have the orders memorized for each day of the week after the first seven days, I'm not much on carols anymore.

I love Christmas music.... at Christmas time!!!!

It's been warm and sunny here - it just doesn't feel like mid-November never mind near to Christmas!

When I was in Germany this week, all the shops had their Christmas decorations up - I couldn't believe it!

I play in a chamber music group, and we're performing Christmas music this weekend, at the Junior League Christmas House Tour. It seems really early, I think partly because of the warm weather. But it was fun rehearsing.
