It's Christmas Time! ... or is it?
Recent survey by the mind-crushingly perky folks hosting the local TV morning show revealed the following responses to the following question "When should local radio change format to Christmas tunes?"
- After Halloween 16%
- After Thanksgiving 37%
- Anytime 11%
- Never 36%
That's right, trailing a single point behind "After Thanksgiving" was "Never", confirming yet again our slow societal slide into grinch-like nihilism... and this from folks willingly tuning in to local a.m. TV. But I say "no!" The arctic tundra-scape of January and February are depressing enough that you'd do well to hide my extension cords but Christmas time.... Christmas time is a few scant weeks when we are reminded of the hope we've been gifted by the true meaning of Christmas. It's this hope I intend to celebrate, and I would love for you to join us!
