I’m a musician, and I’ve been rehearsing for two months for a December 18 Christmas concert at church. But outside rehearsal, I hadn’t turned on any Christmas music until this week–even though there’s a local radio station that’s been all-Christmas all the time since mid-November. (And regarding traditional carols: the director of our concert refuses to rehearse those until Advent begins, claiming it’s just too soon to play “Hark the Herald Angels Sing”–even just for practice.)
How early is too early to listen to Christmas songs and carols?
