I live in southeastern Virginia (hi, neighbor!) and we have a couple of radio stations around here that are already playing Christmas music. Some of them only throw in a Christmas song every once in a while, but others play it non-stop from the day after Halloween on. A bit overkill, in my opinion. The department stores have started in already, too. Our Wal-Mart is completely decked out, Christmas tree at the entrance and all. That, again, came the day after Halloween. Which, I suppose, is better than the little home decor shop I used to work at a few years ago - they started us on the Christmas music there in August. No joke. I myself just started listening to my iPod's Christmas playlist today, but I just skipped around to the instrumental stuff. I didn't want to go all out just yet.
