I Have a Confession to Make

I hate Christmas music.

There is a radio station local to me (WALK, 97.5 FM out of Long Island) that starts playing Christmas music right around the week before Thanksgiving, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week until the day after Christmas.  They started playing it about a week ago.

Assuming that WALK started playing Christmas music on 11/19.  Yes, you read that right: 11/19.  Most of us have barely gotten over the hangover from our respective Halloween parties by 11/19, and this station is already playing Christmas music.

The worst thing is that there is a grand total of about twenty, maybe thirty songs that they play over and over.  Midnight 11/19 to midnight 12/26 is 864 hours of Christmas music.  Figuring an average of 4 minutes per song, that means that each song has been played 648 times by the time it’s all said and done.  I swear to Christ, if I hear “Holly, Jolly Christmas” one more time, Imma choke a bitch.

So, I find the most obnoxious System of a Down album I can tolerate (usually Toxicity), and play it on repeat until 12/18.  I allow Christmas music then, because I mean, after all, it is Christmas.
