Can we have Thanksgiving first?

I know Thanksgiving is only about a week away and after that is the craziness that is the holiday season. And I know that everyone is supposed to love Christmas music. And I know I am probably just being a humbug, but the fact that a radio station has started to play all Christmas music, all of the time, annoys me. It is too early to start this shit. I am not a huge fan of most Christmas music, there are a few exceptions, I like Feliz Navidad, Little Drummer Boy is Ok and I can live with Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer, but not yet. I like to take one holiday at a time. I was annoyed when I was looking for Halloween stuff in Target and right there beside the Halloween stuff was the Christmas stuff and it wasn't Halloween yet, but this is ridiculous to start the music already. I hate to break it to the fucking fundies, but when you can start fucking decorating in the middle of October (before Columbus Day), start seeing wreaths and trees up decorating whole towns and fucking listen to fucking Christmas music before fucking Thanksgiving there AIN'T NO FUCKING WAR ON FUCKING CHRISTMAS so shut the fuck up about it already. Or maybe I am just grumpy about this shit, I have been accused of being a humbug especially about Christmas music before, but really how many fucking times do you need to hear fucking White Christmas or fucking Jingle Bells before fucking your fucking head will explode. And people wonder why I start fucking swearing at fucking loudspeakers in fucking public places when they play fucking Christmas music. It is cause I am tired of fucking Christmas music and it ain't even fucking Thanksgiving yet. Sheesh!!

Side Note: I really like the word fuck tonight, apparently, I used it 19 times in this post.

You said it all! Well done. I am rather bah-humbug about Christmas too so I agree completely. And it's not just the radio playing regular Christmas songs - it's ADS that are using Christmas tunes for their stupid ADS!!! It drives me crazy.

Ah, yes. Welcome to Chicago. WLIT started this 24/7 Christmas music November 1st or 2nd last year! They usually start it right around Thanksgiving. I don't know why they started it so early last year, but evidently they got a ton of complaints so they pushed it back this year. Personally, the Christmas music has helped put me in a better mood the last few days, but I normally prefer to wait until the day after Thanksgiving.

I hate, Hate, HATE Christmas music. I take no prisoners on this one. I cannot stand any of it. You don't have to like it, Boxer, and fer chrissakes you got the best excuse of all being Jewish.

When forced to put on Christmas music when my family stops by, I either put on the Charlie Brown Christmas album (if it is the part of my family I like), or the South Park Christmas Album (if it is the fundamentalist branch of my family).

As a Jeebus lovin', Christmas lovin' person I must say this and this alone - I hate the fuckety fuck fucking fucked up all fucking day all fucking night all fucking fucked up Christmas music radio stations.

Of which we have 2 here in Smalbania. TWO?!

Honestly, I love Christmas music- not all of it, I am a picky ass snob about a lot of it, but I have a huge collection of it on my iPod.

And not one note of it will be played until the day after Thanksgving or so.

Jesus on a waffle, this is not about a war on Christmas and even if you waged a war on said holiday, I would still love you. All those "wah poor us there is a war on our holiday of Christmas" people should STFU and get iPods and earphones if they want to hear Christmas music.

Leave the rest of us alone.

Rant over!!! Shalom!!

(sheesh i hope that i have not offended my email friend known as mom of boxer at this point. sorry!)

I rather enjoy holiday music. Growing up, it was the primary reason I ever wanted to go to Mass, particularly midnight Mass. But, doodz, enough is enough already.

And, really can't we break it up a bit? How about some Jewish holiday music? And what about the Pagans? Some great folk singers among the Pagans! But noooooo... that would destroy the sacred meaning of the winter holiday season, which, in reality, has been celebrated by humans since as far back as we have record as some sort of sacred time (Jeebus or no Jeebus). Stoopid Fundies ruined it for everybody.

I'd love to just place a wake up call for December 30th or so. Thanks.

I am soooo done with the Christmas music.
By Dec. 25, if I haven't killed anyone I'm going to consider it a victory.
