Is November the right time or too soon to listen to Christmas music?

Is November the right time or too soon to listen to Christmas music?

As the last autumn leaves fall and winter’s chill creeps in, a timeless debate resurfaces: is November the hallowed moment for sleigh bells and carols, or an early symphony of jingles that might just be one hot cocoa too soon? As the fever for holiday tunes clashes with the traditional timeline, opinions clash like cymbals in this perennial melody of when, or if, it’s the right time to press play on the Christmas playlist.

The students in our school seem to have strong opinions on this topic. Dakota Benally, junior said,”After October but three days off for Thanksgiving.”

Another student says,”I would say the appropriate time to listen to Christmas music would be after Thanksgiving.” Said Emily Pittman, junior.

A lot of people who listen to Christmas music before Thanksgiving might get tired of hearing the same songs over and over and won’t want to listen to Christmas songs when the holiday comes around. When everyone else who waited will want to listen to Christmas music throughout the holiday season until it’s over.

Brynlee Merrill,junior wants to start early on her Christmas music listening calendar. She said, “As soon as that clock hits 1:00 am on November 1st.”

People should listen to the vast majority of their Christmas music after Thanksgiving. But that doesn’t mean that people can’t listen to a couple songs here and there before Thanksgiving, they should at least consider waiting until after Thanksgiving to listen to more of the songs.

About the Contributor
Loving Grantsville As she tosses her bag into the back of the car and watch her parents  slowly start to drive away, she cant help smiling back at her town.  Born and raised in Grantsville, Lindsey Langford loves her hometown. Her dad talks about growing up here,  and now she and her brother are considered locals too.  But she's proud of being called a local.  Because it means she lives where the mountains are ‘just right there.’  And where the best sunsets blend into the sky each night.  Then she sits on her porch and gets to look at the whole valley below her. Where she can only describe the view as breathtaking. The drive up to Yellowstone isn't bad,  and she loves visiting it each year with her family. But she already knows she doesn’t want to leave Grantsville for the rest of her life. There's already been so much joy and even heartbreak for her to ever want to leave. In the summer she lost her dog who she had known since she was four.  That morning she remembers telling her dog Missy  “see you in a little bit,” without even knowing it would be goodbye. But that doesn't stop her from still enjoying life here.  Because despite the loss of her dog,  there's still so much that gives her reason to love this town. More than all the memories or even the view, It’s the people. The people who are so kind and real. She loves to be with friends, whether it's casting a rod into a lake,  or being lifted and spun around well swing dancing.  Her family’s only going to be gone for half a week  for their yearly trip to Yellowstone. But then they’ll come back home to Grantsville. Back to the home she loves.
