Call me a grinch but I am realy unhappy hearing Christmas Music in NOVEMBER and stores with Christmas decorations in NOVEMBER. The commercialization of Christmas has us all brainwashed. I see too many people with Christmas lights up in NOVEMBER. Christmas used to be a fun and cheery time of year for me, everyone was happy and courteous. Back then Christmas music and lights and the whole season did not start until the middle of December and by the time Christmas Day actually arrived we were just reaching our peak of happiness.
These days with the season starting so early I am not in any Christmas spirit come December 25th. I am done.
I'm with you. It's too early to plunge into Christmas holiday mode. I'm working on the definitive Christmas mix, but I don't intend to start spinning it until a couple of weeks before Christmas. I've written a few times about these Toronto radio stations already playing all holiday music, all the time.
We're killing the spirit of Christmas. It's criminal.
