"Before last year, I wouldn't listen to Christmas music until Thanksgiving Day. I bumped that up to November 1. . . yes, I'm one of those. To friends who plan to chastise me, here are my preemptive responses:
1. The early onset of Christmas enhances Thanksgiving, it does not belittle it.
2. 'Christmas songs' and 'holiday sales' are not alike. Don't confuse celebrating Christmas with commercializing it.
2. The biblical narrative of 'the Christmas story' covers a period of approximately two years, so two months isn't overdoing it.
And now, back to preparing my playlist."
