How soon should radio stations start playing Christmas Music?

One of the radio stations out here where I live started playing Christmas songs three or more days BEFORE Thanksgiving this year. Usually they start after said holiday... How early should they start?

  • I agree with some of the others. About two weeks before. Everyone gets tired of hearing them. It's like that with the decorations to. Some people put them up before Thanksgiving. Then get tired of looking at them before Christmas.

  • 1 station here started before Thanksgiving. I agree though maybe 2 weeks before Christmas. Did you notice the day after it is back to regular programming?

  • I can't stand listening to Christmas music ALL month. I wish they would start only 2 weeks before. It get old and by the time Christmas comes, you don't want to listen to it anymore.
