Christmas music BEFORE Thanksgiving? Yes or No?

A debate is raging in the Grassfire offices about whether it's "appropriate" to play Christmas music BEFORE Thanksgiving. One of our staff members says his family started listening to "O Holy Night" and other popular Yuletide songs on Halloween! Others insist that Christmas music MUST NOT be played until AFTER Thanksgiving.

The debate got us wondering what Grassfire Nation thinks. So today, we're launching the "Christmas Music Conundrum" QuickPoll.

If you think it's O.K. to start playing Christmas music BEFORE Thanksgiving, click here or on the "BEFORE!" image below. If you think "Silent Night," "Jingle Bells" and the rest should wait until AFTER Thanksgiving, click here or on the "AFTER!" image below.

Grassfire understands that there are many issues facing our nation that are much more serious than this one. But we simply want to have a little fun and, hopefully, spread a little bit of pre-Christmas cheer. Please let us know what you think by participating in Grassfire's "Christmas Music Conundrum" QuickPoll.

Thanks, in advance, for voting.

For liberty and limited government,

The Grassfire Team

    Personally I love Christmas music anytime! However, I’m assuming this question is meant for the music to be played publicly in stores, and I think a lot of people get aggravated with it being played so early because they associate it with early sales of Christmas items, thinking they are commercializing Christmas for early profits! which to me, it doesn’t really matter because you don’t have to buy it that early if you feel that way, but others like me, just enjoy it! I love Christmas and thinking of the true meaning, and just extends it a little longer! I don’t put my tree up and decorate my home before Thanksgiving (usually the day after) but not offended if anyone else does! I do however think it’s nice to take the time between Halloween and Thanksgiving to just be thankful for all we have and the blessings God has given us!

    Leave it until AFTER Thanksgiving (or at least on the day). Wally World was putting up their Christmas stuff in freakin’ AUGUST, for pity’s sake! It’s just overdoing it. A local radio station started playing Christmas music 24/7 before Halloween. It’s overload, and it loses its joy if you keep hearing it over and over again. It diminishes the “special” nature of the holiday. Say Merry Christmas, absolutely. But don’t start saying it in March, for pity’s sake!

    I don’t particularly mind Christmas music anytime but I see it as, first, crass commercialism and second as the globalist, minimizing or founding principles.
