Everything in its proper time

Songs I heard at Red Robin over lunch today:
Jingle Bells
The Real Thing- John Mayer
All I Want for Christmas is You
Who Says You Can’t Go Home- Jon Bon Jovi
Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer
Ever the Same- Rob Thomas
Carol of the Bells (Okay, kind of awesome because you almost never hear this song performed with the words, but still)
Save the Last Dance for Me- Michael Buble
It’s Christmas Time Again (no, it’s NOT!)
Better Days- Goo Goo Dolls
Step Into Christmas
IT’S NOVEMBER SECOND PEOPLE! I mean, I will admit it, I have at least 4 Christmas songs that shuffle through my iPod year round, but that’s my choice. I still have a Christmas decoration hanging on the inside of my bedroom door, but that’s because it’s pretty. That’s not me piping it over the airwaves or decorating an entire public place TWO DAYS after Halloween.
I am staunchly “No Christmas Until After Thanksgiving” (my friend in Calgary got me though when he said that in Canada, Thanksgiving was almost a month ago). Sure, I’ll pick up a gift here or there because it’s perfect for someone and save it for Christmas, but I don’t “go Christmas shopping” until after Thanksgiving. I realize it makes me crazy, giving myself only a few weeks to shop for about 20 people, but that’s the way I do things. I also realize that I’m in the minority, but it doesn’t mean I’m going to put up with having Christmas shoved down my throat for almost two months. I think I’m gonna be staying home a lot the next few weeks…

    Hello, fellow NaBloPaMo blogger! You aren’t so much in the minority as you think! I’m right there with you! When I noticed Christmas decorations going up ON HALLOWEEN I about died. I think it makes the whole thing less magical and exposes the seedy underbelly of it (Money money money!).
    Anywho, I agree with ya.

    We saw the first Christmas display at a store when it was still September. The first day of autumn hadn’t arrived yet. I felt a little ill.

    one of the radio stations i listen to plays NOTHING but christmas songs starting on november 1st.
    this seems like a bad decision, seeing as how there are only about 40 songs that they just repeat OVER AND OVER AND OVER.
    but they’ve been doing it every year since i can remember.
    still, it’s just as infuriating as ever.
    isn’t christmas supposed to make us happy?
    this radio station is totally ruining it for me.
