Seriously, as soon as one day after Halloween, there have been ridiculous amounts of Christmas music. Did people forget the holiday between Halloween and Christmas, Thanksgiving? True there aren’t catchy songs about eating turkey, but it’s not necessary to have so much Christmas music being played right after the spooky season.

Hearing Christmas songs being constantly played on the radio is just as annoying as in the store, and the employees have to deal with it. Full time workers listening to Christmas music for their whole shift for two months must have their ears blown off.

Christmas music is just repeated over and over again. There are different variations of the same classic Christmas songs. According to Walt Hickey, culture writer for FiveThirtyEight, “Silent Night,” “White Christmas” and “Jingle Bells” are the most-covered songs in the holiday canon. Why listen to the same song multiple times by different artists?

Christmas music is supposed to bring joy to everyone. But does everyone get joyful from listening to “Jingle Bells” or “I saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus”. According to Shana McGough, NBC employee, the music gets old, and it can start to feel like a part of a giant sales machine trying to suck in customers.

Christmas music can also be a constant reminder to those that don’t have a wonderful life. Christmas music talks about family time and tis the season to have a wonderful Christmas, but that’s not the case for people that don’t have a family and are lonely.

Christmas music would not be as annoying if it did not start playing on November 1st. After Thanksgiving would be an appropriate time to start playing Christmas music while people are actually in the Christmas season. Additionally, once Christmas is over, the music should be too.
