Too Early?

Today's prompt is to write about something traumatic that has happened to me. I'm not going to do that today, but if you're interested in reading about my experience with the April 27th tornadoes in Alabama I wrote about it here.

Instead, I have a confession to make.

There's a station here in town that plays Christmas music 24 hours a day around Christmas. The past 2 years they've started up their Christmas time earlier and earlier, and this year it started the morning of Halloween. I was annoyed. Who wants to hear Christmas music on Halloween?


That's right. I admit it. I listened to it. Just a song or 2, but I did. And it made me happy.

And I listened to it again the next day, and the next, and the next.....

I listened to it again today. And it made me happy again. And I made my son listen to it also.

I blame it on the radio station. They make it so easy, it's right there. It brings good feelings, feelings of Christmas shopping, wrapping gifts, sending cards, seeing family, eating Christmas food, drinking cider, attending Christmas Eve services, singing carols.......

I admit it, I'm a Christmas music junkie.

The problem is, I'm afraid I'm going to overdo it. If I listen to too much now, before Thanksgiving even, by Christmas I may be tired of it. I may overdose on Christmas music before it's even time for Christmas.

So I should stop. I should reset my presets so I'm not tempted. I should only play my son's childrens' music cds in the truck. I should not listen to Christmas music right now!

Well, maybe just one more song...

  1. I'm so jealous!! I've been searching our radio stations and SiriusXM because last year we DID have holiday music this early! This year? NO LUCK! I'm obsessed, I need holiday cheer EVERY DAY.
    But I get it... it can totally be overkill!
