It seems like every year the anticipation for Christmas starts sooner. Stores start decorating their window displays with festive lights and stockings earlier and earlier each year and with classics such as “Sleigh Ride” and “Jingle Bell Rock,” most people can’t resist listening to these earworms weeks before December. However, there are a few who still feel that it’s just too early for Christmas spirit.

The many people in favor of starting Christmas decorations so early argue that it’s the perfect way to start off the holiday season right. The cheer and uplifting messages in the music helps get people ready for the craziness that ensues in the weeks leading up to the big day. Finals, shopping for gifts, decorating trees, among many other things can get stressful and listening Christmas music can be the perfect way to relax.

Some would even go as far as to argue that Christmas music is appropriate year-round. “Everyone fights me if I say it’s not too early to start listening, but honestly I start playing Mariah Carey’s ‘All I Want for Christmas is You’ in June,” said sophomore Greg Gosha.

There are those, however, who say “Bah Humbug” to what they would call premature yuletide spirit. On the opposite end of the spectrum of the early-holiday season fanatics is sophomore Taylor Hicks. “We need to focus on Halloween and Thanksgiving rather than just waiting for Christmas all year long,” she said.

Whether you have already pulled out every ornament and decoration or you are still mourning the passing of Halloween and all those attendant sugar-buzzes, the official beginning of the Christmas season is almost here. Before you know it, television networks will be airing holiday specials and radio stations will be playing Christmas music and no one will question it. Until then, we will just have to sit back and enjoy Thanksgiving — and maybe secretly listen to our Christmas playlists. Whether you’re ready or not, ‘tis the season.
