As in, the less you subjugate me to Christmas music before the day itself, the less you oversaturate things, the less you desensitize me to it, the more positively I will react to the music the day of. Especially considering most of what's sung is the same junk, sung by the same people. Pretty much the only Christmas song I'd listen to before then is carol of the bells, and I don't really consider that a Christmas song.
I had in mind a much longer rant than this but the words don't seem to flow so well, so hopefully my feelings can convey what my words do not. It's not that I hate the holidays. It's not that I hate the music. (Though most of it is junk with only a few good songs and said good songs are horrendously overplayed.) It's that I hate how you celebrate the holidays by blasting that music at me constantly nonstop before the time it should be.
The earliest I should hear Christmas music is December 24th.
Yes, I can acknowledge a starting point of December 13th (for the 12 days of Christmas), but that's really not something I subscribe to especially when you would if you had your way start a full month before Christmas the moment Thanksgiving ended, switching over immediately to my dismay. And, yes. 25 days of Christmas is way, way, way too much so waiting until December is not being patient as far as I'm concerned.
