I really think that the department stores start playing Christmas Music earlier and earlier every year. (Yes, I realize I'm just posting this on 12/13. The Christmas Music has been driving me nuts for over two weeks now).
I don't think I'd have as huge of a problem with it if the music was to change up occasionally. We get new normal music every day — why not a new Christmas-related song every 500 years or so?
[ Incidentally, I know I've been a bit lax in updating the blog recently.. I keep having these wonderful thoughts that need posting that I keep telling myself I'll post when I get back at a computer. Then I forget. Doh. ]
