This Was Inevitable!

I do not apologize for this! No matter how hard I try to wait until after Thanksgiving to play Christmas music, my efforts were futile. With the little snow that fell last weekend, the sudden cold weather, and Faith Hill's new Christmas cd that was released at the end of September, I am now completely immersed in Christmas music. For those of you who enjoy Christmas music whenever, I am sure you understand. For those of you who insist that Christmas music only be played after Thanksgiving and before New Years, I will try to keep it to myself until November 28, but I make no guarantees.
PS, Happy Halloween, Happy Thanksgiving, Happy Hanukkah, and Merry Christmas!

I will admit that I'm one of those people who can't listen to Christmas music until the day after Thanksgiving. Although I must say, I was really pleased to see Celine's Christmas album at the very top of all the others. It's always the first one I listen to every year. :)

I agree. No matter how often I listen to it, it's always the first :) I do have to say that Faith Hill's is pretty impressive as well, but still not my first choice.
