Yes, Christmas music would be PERFECT to hear right now. Around this time of year, I am SO ready to hear some Christmas music. I love it...but only for so long....not year round. Where's the poll? I'm voting YES!!!

Yes! Its time for Christmas music. One day or one month is not enough to celebrate the amazing love of Jesus to earth coming in flesh and eventually paying the debt for my our sins. Amen!

I will have to turn the radio to another station if you start Christmas music this early. Don't make me do that, it would make me cry

The only Christmas music that should be played before Thanksgiving is by Denver and the Mile High Orchestra!!  Nothing to "traditional" before Thanksgiving!

Kelli - I am with you!  Christmas all of the way.  I love those holiday songs.  It puts me in a wonderful, loving mood.  I find myself humming, my step is lighter, I am nicer to people.  I honestly don't get why so many people are against it.  Here in Pittsburgh,we had snow over the weekend, so it definitely felt like Christmas.  I would love to hear a Christmas carol interspersed with the regulars.  Here in Pittsburgh, we have a couple of radio stations that play Christmas music 24 hours a day the week before Thanksgiving through Christmas Day! I love every minute of it. Thanks for all you do!

How about a compromise:

If Scott can find an American Thanksgiving song, he can play that.

If not, we get to hear a Christmas Song!

My early years were filled with Trials and Tribulations but some of the best times of my early life involved the time  spent with family around Christmas. I believe it is because Christmas reminds me of Christ Birth and this brings me Joy...

Play Christmas Songs early (Before Thanksgiving) for those of us who are in need of the encouragement. "Positive and Encouraging Music..."

DO IT! Laughing It's almost 80 degrees here in Missouri today, lol! Why not bust out some Walkin in a Winter Wonderland. Even if you're anti-Christmas-music-before-Thanksgiving, you should at least be able to enjoy the irony... either that or those of you in Colorado and the East Coast might as well get it the mood since winter has arrived early ;)

YES! GO AHEAD AND GET THIS PARTY STARTED!  WHY NOT?!  WHY DON'T YOU START OF THE SEASON WITH THE SONG "GRANDMA GOT RUN OVER BY A REINDEER?"  

BY STARTING THE CHRISTMAS SEASON NOW, YOU HAVE PLEANTY OF TIME TO SAVE YOUR MONEY AND WHEN THE TIME REALLY COMES TO FIGHT THE LOVELY LINES AT YUKMART (WALMART), YOU'LL BE READY!  BRING IT ON!

Lots of love and blessings to you all!

Sure why not.  I have a broken iPod I play in my office that won't sync anymore and it has a bunch of Christmas tunes along with the other Christian songs.  I am surprised with a Christmas song a couple times a day when I play it.  It is kind of nice but it does get looks when someone walks in and hears that in the summer time.  

Thanks

it use to fry me christmas in nov. until God layed it on my heart that . not to judge . if one is giving thanks in nov. and the thing they are most thankful for is birth of christ then let them be be blessed in nov. after all thanksgiving is not about the turkey but the blessing and christmas is not about the gifts or the true. but but about christ birthday...after all the blessing to be thankful for is the birth of jesus christ who found us worthy before our birth that our life be with his life...that is a lot to be thankful for ....food for thought

It just occurred to me that since we are already being commercialized by the stores who already have Christmas stuff out it is IMPERATIVE to have a Christmas song as an antidote.  Lets counter the stores with the Jesus side of it.

Tammi United States
Tammi
Absolutely NOT!!  Scott I agree with every single argument you've given not to play Christmas music.  They're all completely valid - especially the one about it fueling commercialism.  Even though it's only 'one' song - all it takes is a spark.  Remember - too much of anything makes it less special.

NO! We need to really focus on how important the day of Thanksgiving is to our families and our nation. Gratitude is becoming a lost art ... and no surprise when you turn the radio on on Thanksgiving and they are playing Christmas songs all day. Makes me sad... and I love Christmas!

For all those who don't want to hear a Christmas song...Christmas celebrates Christ's birth; Christ suffered for you so look at listening to a Christmas song as suffering for others.

NO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! This country has ruined the true meaning of Christams by pushing it down our throats.  There should be NOTHING Christmas anywhere until December 1st and then gone December 26th. There is nothing special about Chrismas anymore, thenks to people like Kelli

If we ever needed the joy and reassuring  message of Christmas music ...it is NOW!!!!! Also, living in Texas where it is still in the 80's +, a little Christmas music helps us feel cooler.  Also....for the comments on Christmas items in stores showing up in September or October, this is something that has been done in retail for a long time.  With the economy in the shape it is in now, putting items in lay-away is helpful for those stretching their $ as best they can.  The Spirit of Christmas is wonderful and the more it can be shared, the better.  A couple of songs along the way isn't going to hurt...will only help!!!!

Kelli,
Please try to keep in mind that there are many people that Christmas music does not bring happiness. Many of us have experienced loss, or have little to no family that care, no holiday gatherings, presents or anything that resembles what your life looks like. I'd be happy, too, if I had a life like yours. It would be wrong of you to make this assumption. I do like Christmas music, but I don't care for the sadness that the season brings, nor do I look forward to it. I do the best I can, but it is very different than your reality.

NO!!  If you didn't overdo it in December it might be okay now.  I like all the songs we listen to now during the whole year and just a little Christmas songs in December.

I LOVE Christmas music, don't get me wrong, but would have to say wait till Thanksgiving Day, then play it all day and everyday after all the way till next year! I don't mind a Christmas song here or there, but I think waiting till Thanksgiving is a good idea!

YES!!!!! there isnt really "Thanksgiving music" and only a very limited time that you can really enjoy Christmas music, if you wait till after Thanksgiving you just dont have enough time to really enjoy it!!

Terry United States

I think this is a good time to start integrating Christmas music into the regular schedule, gradually building up to Christmas.  The REAL message of Christmas is important every day of the year.  Beautiful songs with a beautiful message shouldn't be saved for only a few days each year.  For the same reason, I think Christmas music should also be played for the 12 days after Christmas also.  The Christmas season doesn't end at midnight on Christmas day.

all these people that are saying "we hear enough christmas music when we're shopping!" well guess what, its true, we do hear a ton of secular christmas music when we're shopping but on KLOVE we get to hear Christian Christmas music!  people, please don't ruin that by saying we have to wait till thanksgiving.  I've been listening to Christian Christmas music for a couple weeks now and I am LOVING it.

Thanks for playing Matthew's Christmas song. It reminded me I needed to pick up a box for Operation Christmas Child. Gifts going overseas need to be ready by mid November - so a few Christmas songs now will get people in the mood for giving.

I enjoy Christmas music anytime of the year.I was so glad to hear you were ready for it also. Christmas is a special time of the year and needs to be celebrated through out.The birth of Jesus,family,friends like Christmas music should be celebreated always.

Talking about Christmas. We have 5 children and lots of family to buy for so we start shopping the day after Christmas for the next year and I will pick up things throughout the year getting for for it. We put up our tree & decorations a week or two before Thanksgiving so the pressure of decorating is done so we can enjoy Tgiving and shop Black Friday. After Black Friday there are only 3 Saturdays left before Christmas if you don't count Christmas Eve. And yes, we listen to Christmas music EARLY.  We started before Halloween, but just a little so we don't get tired of it before Christmas. We have made a birthday cake for Jesus and already picked out which one we want to bake for HIM this year! So we say play a Christmas song every once in a while...what will it hurt?

Rudolph, Frosty, Jingle Bells - No way.
But any song that mentions Jesus and praises Him - Antime is good for me. That includes "Christ"mas songs.

I personally think it is a little too soon. As much as I love Christmas music when you start hearing Christmas music you start to think about the new year and everything that you have been thru this year and what has happened in your life. Life goes by too fast as it is already. We still have 2 months before another year passes us by. I would like to catch my breath before another year "flies" by in the blink of an eye!
P.S. I did enjoy the Christmas song you played, so when it gets closer to Christmas I will be requesting it Smile

Hi guys,
I’m with Scott on this one,  I love Christmas music and It’s a time for celebration, But commercialism has taken the thankfulness out of Thanksgiving and even some of the meaning out of Christmas music to the ameican public.  I hear so many people groaning over Christmas music, Really?  Do we even want this to be a debate?  We want this to be a joyful time for everyone, if the verdict is split in half that’s way too many people that think it’s too early.  Let’s just wait a bit, let people settle into Thanksgiving then wow them with Christmas!

I would love to hear just one song a day until after the Thanksgiving, most of the spiritual Christmas songs have alot of Thanks so appropriate for this time of year. Please play some.. And then after Thanksgiving blast us out, as I love Christmas music!!

No Christmas music yet.  I LOVE Josh Wilson, he was at our church last Feb with Matthew West...LOVE them!!! In Brentwood CA (Golden Hills)

Barking dogs have to go.  Dogs are NOT mandatory. They must behave!
Train or keep in so not to bother neighbors. Our neighbor has 2 dogs that bark and fight continually. Not fair to us!

Scott, I understand your concern over the commercialization of Christmas, so I think there needs to be a clarification of what Christmas music we are talking about. There is a difference between Santa music and true "Christ"mas music. Playing Santa music is part of the commercialism, but music about the birth of our Lord and Savior is not. If we are to proclaim the Lord's death until He comes like we do every time we take communion (which is done all throughout the year), shouldn't we also be proclaiming His birth all year round?

I agree with making a distinction between the secular tunes associated with the commercialization of Christmas (hold off on these as long as possible) and slowly introducing the beautiful message of Christ in Christmas as the older and newer sacred pieces do. The holy music is always a beautiful reminder any day or night. As a recreational musician, I am busy these days preparing for various Christmas performances, and find the early reminders and preparation with fellow observers to be a joy.

I know the subjust is well gone by, but I have been meaning to tell you, I went to the David Crowder*Band concert on tuesday and yes, they played a christmas song off of there new christmas cd.  Yes it was very awesome!  The concert was... not sure what words to use but, John Mark McMillan, Gungor (with the beatbox cellist) and Chris August had a great concert by themselves.
