When do you start to listen to Xmas music? 🎄

I listen year round.

In August I like to listen to White Christmas to help keep me cool

Off and on all year, but now it's in high gear

When they start playing it in buildings.

It irks me that Most Wonderful Time of the Year has been hijacked by so many non-Christmas tv commercials. I remember when Letterman used to have Andy Williams on his show every year to sing the song. Then letterman moved to CBS and Williams was still under contract to NBC, so Letterman had DarleneLove come out and sing Christmas Baby Please Come Home.

Wow, so much if NBC Letterman just fell off the face of the earth when he moved to CBS. NBC sure knows how to wreck late might tv.

Each year beginning on December 26, because this sad and angry world sucks a lot.

Every time my cell phone rings. The singing dogs “jingle bells” is my ring tone and has been all year. I’m too lazy to change it. Please to enjoy!

April is the true most wonderful time of the year.

If I was dictator I would go all pol pot on everything Christmas. Especially the music.

The 5th of July, the official beginning of the Christmas Season.

Thank the goddess that YT has all those 12 hours of music loops I can put on in the background.

I listen to this occasionally, but not really at Xmas.

I don’t have any holiday music.

When my family turns it on at the family gatherings. I find it so repetitive.

Not if you have hay fever.

never, I am the christmas music, as a musician I make the music, professionally, so I never need or care to "listen" to it

by Anonymousreply 25November 21, 2023 2:06 PM

I used to have hay fever, r24, but it didn’t start until August. A friend of mine gets it in the spring, too. Mine disappeared when I moved to NYC. No ragweed on Riverside.

You're lucky, R26!

I have it and it shows up in the late summer. Makes me feel like a real slob

how do you listen to music at home? Cds? streaming? how to stream? options? what do I need to buy?

by Anonymousreply 29December 8, 2023 4:22 PM

Still not listening regularly until maybe a week before Christmas. I'll then listen sporadically on radio. I don't have my own selections to play, as I'd rather listen to the radio stations and maybe be surprised at something different.

As someone above stated, it can be so repetitive.

But I watched some of the NBC Rockefeller Center tree lighting and enjoyed that music with various celebrities singing, and I seem to enjoy that every year.

But I heard a nice Christmas instrumental on a classical music station in Boston a couple years ago which was nice. But it didn't really play any other Christmas music that hour, so never listened again; I don't really care for most classical music, so don't tune in to my local classical radio station Gasp, I know! But I ain't cultured unlike you folks.
