Appropriate time to start Christmas music season

So



Since Thanksgiving is coming up and this is actually a pretty big deal for some people, I thought I would pose the question. When is the right time to START playing Christmas music?

I'm pretty sure most people wait unti after Thanksgiving. Some wait longer. Some just never stop.

When is it for you?

(Poll coming)

    After Thanksgiving, as the day after is when everyone starts going Christmas Shopping.

    Right after Thanksgiving. I hate when businesses start playing Christmas music in the middle of November.

    I always try to restrain myself until after Thanksgiving, but once it passes I listen to it all the time... and watch Love Actually.

    Never seen it. I just know my GF likes it, and therefore it cannot possibly be a good movie.

    All Christmas decorations and music are up and running at CVS. Two days later and I want a bullet in my head.

    Idealistically, the week of Christmas. Realistically, the start of December is a decent compromise.

    Americans spent 220 billion dollars in 2004 for Christmas. Yeah, I'd say pretty damn good for the economy.

    I consider myself an elitist snob when it comes to films (and I'm sure others consider me that way as well), so listen to me when I say this. It's actually quite good.
