Holiday Traditions starts tomorrow on Sirius. I like it. I usually listen to Christmas music at various points throughout the year on Pandora. Just reminds me of the best time of the year.

mad This is really getting ridiculous now.

I was at Lowes and they had the Christmas stuff next to the Halloween stuff as of 2 weeks ago. The lady at the counter told me they had the Christmas stuff in the back area since the beginning of August when I mentioned it.

I hate silly Christmas music, especially down here where there is no such thing as winter.

I love Christmas music.... after Thanksgiving. There are radio stations that I no longer listen to at all, year round, because they start Christmas music after Halloween. They haven't changed their practice. I guess they have more listeners that like it than those that don't. But it still makes me feel better to find other radio stations.

After having worked at walmart for several years, I hate all christmas music now. It got so bad the last year I was there that I taped two broom sticks together, taped a piece of wire from a coat hanger to the end of THAT. I then reached up, hooked the wire going into the PA speaker and ripped it apart. This was in the TLE shop area that had only one speaker.
I enjoyed the silence for the last month. It took them like 2 years to fix it too.

I'm fine with Christmas, but could do without all the hoopla of music and advertisements.

My favorite Xmas music moment was when Mark Jensen (Will Ferrell) tossed his cookies while singing on the turntable.

Sinatra singing "Little Drummer Boy" is pretty darned good, too.

It's marketing driven; we all know that. Unfortunately, it works. If it didn't, they would not do it. I've seen data that shows pushing seasons ahead creates more spending opportunities that are, in fact, realized in sales growth.

Don't want this to happen? Tell everyone you know to quite buying stuff ahead of season.

In my little corner of the world, this is my preference ...
Memorial Day sales no earlier than two weeks prior
July 4th sales (fireworks, etc) would be no earlier than mid-June
Back to School sales no earlier than July. (I actually saw a back-to-school local TV ad and my kids had not finished the semester yet for summer in early June!)
Labor Day sales would be no earlier than mid-August
Halloween stuff starts on Oct 1
Thanksgiving stuff starts right after Halloween
Christmas stuff starts the day after Thanksgiving
New Years stuff the day after Christmas.

I abhor when they leap-frog the Holidays ahead for the purposes of sales, but fiscal returns do pay it back, so they bend the rules to make a buck. I hate it, but I cannot seem to stop it.


(PS - feel free insert your own fav holiday and other stuff in there as well ...)

The act of preventative maintenance, in and of itself, is FAR MORE important than brand/grade/base choices among lubes and filters.
- under maintaining something is akin to abuse/neglect; that can kill equipment by shortening the lifespan
- over maintaining something has never been proven to be anything but a waste of time and money
