Well everyone. Controversial Cam is officially back. Today's controversy is small and mostly a warm up for what is to come but don't let that stop you from getting in on it. I'm really bugged over this whole Christmas Music before Thanksgiving argument. Does it even matter what time of year we listen to Christmas Music? It seems so stupid that people get worked up over people listening to Christmas Music immediately following the close of Halloween. Why can't I listen to Christmas Music in June or on Valentines Day or on Presidents' Day. 


PM - 5.25 miles. 42 minutes easy. Sorry I haven't blogged in a while. I'm not in the habit yet. It was a good run today after work just as the sun was starting to set. It was super beautiful as I ran up Turkey Farm Road and got out of the city. It got kind of dark but I liked it. I'm feeling pretty good right now. I've mostly just been building up mileage slowly over the past couple weeks just to get back in the swing of things but I just want to start running faster and farther already. I'll probably pick it up some more in the coming weeks.

I think it doesn’t matter when you listen to it because isn’t the whole point of listening to Christmas music to remind you of Christmas, the most wonderful time of the year? And who wouldn’t want to be reminded of that?

I am very bugged by people that try and control when I listen to Christmas music or put up decorations or whatever...

If Christmas stuff makes you happy, roll with it.

I personally can do without Christmas music until like the day before, but others like it, so I roll with it.

Only controlling communists try and eliminate the individual's joy.

I knew there was something fishy about those people. Now I know that the dirty communists have invaded America.

You people. Now that e-commerce and expedited shipping have allowed us to circumvent nature and gorge our decadent desires whenever we see fit, the natural expectations of seasonal pleasures are abolished. We can waterski in January, for heck's sake. The world is truly our oyster, but we lack the patience to enjoy the beauty and luster of the pearl.

I hope your taste buds are numbed by all those candy canes you kill throughout the year, and you can't enjoy those perfectly stale Peeps in August.

personally im not a fan of christmas music year round, i prefer to listen to christmas music a little in november maybe and then all out in december, but i guess if you like it that much then gooooooooooo for it. if it makes ya happy then why not listen to it all the time. country music makes me happy so i listen to it 24/7.

I love a little Christmas music anytime throughout the year, but to me, something just seems wrong about hearing it on the radio immediately following Halloween. It's like toothpaste and orange juice. The orange juice has a weird taste when one drinks it IMMEDIATELY after brushing teeth. However, if you wait a little bit, eat some turkey dinner and a little pumpkin pie, THEN drink orange juice, the ideal taste is achieved.
