Christmas in November: Is That Really Necessary?!

It’s back!

After trying a few months of looking at the positives in life, I decided to put a halt to my weekly rant “Is That Really Necessary”. There is already so much negativity out there that I figured I didn’t need to bring anymore attention to it all. But I couldn’t help but get irked over this… and I am sure many of you are feeling the same.

Is it just me or should it be December 25th right now? Don’t get me wrong. I love Christmas. I don’t even celebrate the holiday but I find myself more excited over Christmas specials, Christmas decorations, Christmas drinks at Starbucks, and sitting on Santa’s lap (creepy?) than my Christmas celebrating counterparts.

But people, (and by people, I mainly mean people of the radio and retail worlds) Christmas music already?! What is that about? How many weeks of “All I Want for Christmas Is You” can one person endure? Stores have been carrying Christmas goods and decorating their window shops with candy canes and reindeers. Shopping bags and coffee cups have made the ‘holiday switch’. The cute little gingerbread men are being slaughtered- families torn apart in larger numbers because they are already on bakery shelves! I know its ‘tis the season to be jolly’… except one major factor: TIS NOT THE SEASON YET!

We haven’t even had Thanksgiving. In fact, Thanksgiving is still two whole weeks away. Let me enjoy my stuffing and pumpkin pie, (and biggest bar night of the year) before you go all caroling and Christmas tree on me.

Radio station after radio station are playing Xmas songs. (this radio station happily claims to be “Detroit’s Official Christmas Station” Yipee) that I can’t get out of my head… and might I add by far the worst would be: Feliz Navidad/I want to wish you a Merry Christmas from the bottom of my heart”—you all know what I’m talking about.

So let me just say- enough with the Christmas music. Between Thanksgiving and Christmas you can ‘Silent Night’ and ‘Santa Clause is Coming to Town’ all you want on me… but two months before Christmas? Is that really necessary?!
