Default They have started the Christmas music on the radio already!

I can't believe it... they played that far overplayed song "River" and right behind it... JINGLE BELLS.

I mean...

JINGLE BELLS!

It's not even been Canadian Thanksgiving yet, let alone Halloween or US Thanksgiving


Good grief!

Actually I'm surprised I haven't heard any Christmas Carols yet this year... maybe I just haven't been into enough shops lately... I swear that they started them in about Sep last year

It's still summer here.

It's really not Christmas until you can listen to Cantate Domino without wincing.

I was chatting with a mate in the UK and they're playing Christmas music too and have the Christmas products in the stores, right beside the Halloween stuff

Maybe they're figuring the retail season is going to suck so badly, if they stretch it out a couple more months it'll lessen the blow

That's a possibility. The music feed is from the eastern portion of the country, that got nailed a zillion times worse than we did in the west.

Cheers!

Cantate Domino, Canticum novum...turned into one of the worst of the post-Vatican II sacharine, syruppy hymnal era -- "Sing a new song..."

Well, I for one have been luxuriating in the Anonymous 4 doing their Hungarian Christmas Chant, and last Thursday evening our choir worked over the "Hodie Christus Natus Est".

No Christmas stuff here (might put a red hat with white fluff on one of my speakers to get that festive feel...).
