OPINION: When is it okay to listen to Christmas Music?

Is before Thanksgiving too early to listen to Christmas Music? The controversial subject of when is it okay to listen to Christmas music is an ongoing topic during the holidays.

According to Spoifty, 1 out of 4 of their subscribers listen to Christmas music before Thanksgiving and even earlier.

I am pro-Christmas Music before Thanksgiving. For me, Christmas music brings me joy in the spirit of the holidays and it makes me feel cozy on the inside. I think Christmas music should be listened to during the holiday season to bring joy.

At Jesuit High School, students and faculty also feel strongly about this topic. Many people say after Thanksgiving, but some like to dabble in the jolliness of Christmas Spirit

“After Thanksgiving for sure, but I think it should be borderline December,” senior Anna Keane said.

Faculty member Mrs. O’Mahony also feels strongly about the post Thanksgiving team.

“We have a real battle in my family and I’m very much on the post-Thanksgiving team,” she said.

Even with this vital opinion about Christmas music, others feel the Christmas spirit earlier.

“I used to be hardcore on Christmas music till Thanksgiving but I think I changed my mind and its Christmas music makes you happy. You should listen to it any time of the year,” Magis Seminar teacher Mrs. Hermann said.

Freshman Milla Patel agreed: “I think before Thanksgiving because the radio starts playing them in early November which gets me in the spirit for the holidays.”

Some students don’t really listen to Christmas music at all and are not non-strong-headed about this topic.

“I think whenever you want to listen to it,” senior Scotty Wentworth said.

Tenuous, students and faculty have a wide spectrum of comments on the correct time to listen to Christmas music. I agree with the pre-Thanksgiving team because it reminds me of my family and being with your loved ones during the holidays, not just Christmas.
