Are You The Grinch?

Are You The Grinch?

Jennie Abbott

Sixty days until “The Most Wonderful Time of the Year”, but how many days until this tune by Andy Williams will blare through people’s car stereos or be sung in the shower? The ongoing debate on when ‘the right time’ to start enjoying Christmas music continues. 

A poll was published by the buzzfeed.com staff, asking their readers to vote on when they think people should listen to Christmas music. Six percent said “anytime”, seven percent said “never”, ten percent said “a week before Thanksgiving”, fifteen percent said “the day after Halloween”, 22 percent said “the first of December”, and with the most votes, 40 percent said “the day after Thanksgiving”. 

Do you wait for a “White Christmas” or have you not stopped playing since “Last Christmas”? No matter your preference, if you don’t listen to a little Christmas music before the big day, “You’re a Mean One, Mr. Grinch.”
