Christmas music is playing. Some stations even play it 24/7. How much do you enjoy it?

I like it a lot and can listen to it a lot. I don't like it before Thanksgiving however.

Once in a while I like it....but just the old classics. But sometimes listening to it makes me sad.

I enjoy it. I don't listen much before Thanksgiving, but during the season, why not?

I tolerate it while out shopping, hearing it at malls and department stores, but I don't intentionally seek it out.

I think having it play softly in the background at a Christmas gathering is fine, or maybe in the car as it gets closer to Christmas. I don't think it is as nice to listen to when it is mid-November.

When I was younger, I absolutely hated it. A lot had to do with the eight years of retail work I did.

Now it's fine.

I especially love all the recent decoding of the music into stories of date rape, stalking, domestic violence, and adultery. Today's society couldn't wait to ruin it.

I should add that I hate all of the strange alterations of classic songs that are terrible. They run out of stuff to play so they play a terrible hacked up version of a classic song.

My grandma who passed away a couple years ago at 89 always had the best taste in Christmas music when we went to her house for Christmas dinner.

I do like me some Sinatra singing "Little Drummer Boy" for sure.

I have been thinking about putting Bad Religion's album of amped up Xmas music on my iPod, but the fact that I've been thinking about it for over a year means it probably won't happen.

Depends on the Christmas song itself. Well, it is not actual Zmas song but I like it anyway.

Hate it, hate it, hate it! I worked one Christmas break at the old Famous-Barr department store in Chesterfield MO, and they played a one hour loop of BAD Christmas music...the same loop the whole season. I guess Federated was too cheap to spring for the licensing on first-rate Christmas songs, and settled for awful versions of familiar songs. Hearing the same loop for 8 hours was maddening.

Most of the time, I tune it out.. It's fine for a few days a year, but most places are playing it on or before Thanksgiving now.. and it gets old FAST... even some of the 'better' stuff, like Trans Siberian Orchestra.

I listen to talk or all news radio in the car as I spend a ton of time on the road. Then when I get home I listen to internet radio station. I also shop online instead of in store so I don't really hear Christmas music. I'm fine with that. grin2

I love the old traditional Christmas Hymns. Silent Night, Oh Holy Night, etc... if done tastefully. I don't like them being over-produced and butchered beyond recognition.

I despise however, the same 10 songs that you hear all season long: Jingle Bell Rock, Have a Holly Jolly Christmas, All I Want for Christmas is You, It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas, Rockin' Around the Christmas Tree, Feliz Navidad, etc... I've heard those enough to last me for the rest of my life.

I like Christmas though.
