In your opinion, what is the acceptable time to start playing Christmas music? Before Halloween? After Halloween, but before Thanksgiving? Black Friday? December 1st?

December 1st and anyone playing it before then should be radished in the fashion described by Prince George.

Whatever, just wash your hands.
2 weeks before xmas. I suppose dec 1 works, but earlier than that should be a warcrime.

When I become Emperor of the Universe, playing Christmas music in public at any time other than the actual week of Christmas will be a capital offense.
Something like that. I would say even 1.December is too early. Come on, year has 12 month. we can't have nearly 3/4 of that be in service of two and a half days.
Well, some Christians might disagree.

Also: Man, why is Christmas music so... bad. Even the songs of otherwise good musicians? Always so boring, milquetoast, vapid. Hm, now i have to see if i find a good Christmas song... grml.... thanks.

Not sure what qualifies as good in your book, but I personally quite like Elton John's Step Into Christmas on account of it being rather peppy.


The lyrics are a bit corny here and there, but overal vibe of the song is enjoyable.

December. The same goes for Christmas adverts and super markets setting out their Christmas stuff.

I like Christmas, but fuck me, by the time December rolls around I'm sick of it.

I'm a tiny bit more lenient than most people on here, it seems. I draw the line at the day after Thanksgiving. It should be noted, I have a sister-in-law who would have a xmas tree up year round if she could get away with it (and I actually do like her despite this serious character flaw).

Anytime is right for a fun cover of Feliz Navidad.
Like the music, but I can't get over my loathing of the song's lyrics.

I know that songs generally are repetitive in their lyrics, but this song for some reason really grinds my gears.
