I don't think of Christmas or listen to Christmas Music until Dec 13th because 2 weeks of it and I have had enough!!!

Can't believe Walmart and Home Depot already have Christmas Trees and Decorations up for sale!!! Way Too Early!!!


At least the day after Thanksgiving.

JACK,

Meijer here had their Xmas section already up about 2 weeks before Halloween. Saw that and made a bee line for the alcohol. Tis the season.

wishing all of you a very merry christmas!

I guess we should be thankful they are not following the retail footprint and starting in August..

Noticed a week or so before Halloween that Egg Nog was already in some stores (Wal-Mart and Kroger)

I Wish Dish start Christmas music. Still kind of early tthough.


I probably won't listen to it until about 2 weeks before Christmas, and very likely only in the few days before. It will probably play when we set up our Christmas tree as well, but that is really about it....
[Disclaimer] The definition of "soon" is based solely on DirecTV's interpretation of the word, and all similarities with dictionary definitions of the word "soon" are purely coincidental and should not be interpreted as a time frame that will come to pass within a reasonable amount of time.

DMX/Sonic Tap usually only has one Christmas channel via Holidays and Happenings, but as we get closer they start adding genre specific Christmas music to the playlists of some of the other stations.


Here is the other Christmas Music channels that DMX/Sonic will problem will add

The 70's channel (804) is playing a Christmas song every half hour and I assume certain selected (but not documented) other channels will follow.

I wish it would be CLASSIC CHRISTMAS MUSIC!!!! (Music from the 80s and earlier -- MUCH BETTER)

I've been listening to Pandora as the selections are much better. There are several "channels" for Christmas music including Classic. Just go to their website and add it to your list.

(1) HR44/500

(1) HR24/500

(1) HR22/100
