Well, at Wal*Mart anyway. They’ve already started putting out Christmas music. Obviously they are not followers of any sort of church calendar. Or even most secularists’ calendar, either, who are still stuck on Halloween. Or as Southern Baptists call it, “Fall Festival”. 😉
Since the bible publishers aren’t putting out any revised editions this year, I don’t have an easy Christmas gift for the family (Dagnabit, Roy!). I guess it’s good I get a reminder to start shopping early.
My taste in Christmas music runs to the classical and sacred, as I documented last year here. Those albums(?) are all on my hard drive still, so I can listen to Christmas music all year round, should I choose. Which, come to think of it, isn’t a bad idea.
Speaking of music….
