We all love the holiday season. The beautiful decorations, the food, and of course, the music. The Christmas period would be incomplete without Christmas music. It puts us in the holiday mood and gets us dancing around the kitchen. It is a feeling that is not matched throughout the rest of the year.
So why listen to christmas music early?
It is well known that people who put up their decorations in November are much happier than those who wait for December. So why can’t it be the same for Christmas music?
Getting in the holiday spirit can bring life to your mundane everyday activities. For example, wearing a Christmas jumper out and about can put you in a good mood. Listening to Christmas music while you are cooking, or shopping or just relaxing in the evening can make those activities all the more entertaining and festive.
Of course listening to general music can make your everyday tasks more enjoyable, but with listening to Christmas music you get the added bonus of feeling festive.
Then of course there is the social aspect of it. Inviting your friends over to listen to holiday tunes and have lunch or bake cookies can be a wonderful way to spend a festive Saturday or Sunday.
Listening to music that makes you happy is well known to put you in a better mood. Christmas music has the added bonus of making you happy and putting you in a festive mood. So why wouldn’t you start listening to it early?
But Not Too Early Darlings
Despite the fact that listening to Christmas music puts you in a much better mood and can make your mundane everyday activities more entertaining, it is important to not start too early.
If you do start listening to it too early, then you are in danger of making it less special. Think about it. If you eat a food that you love everyday, eventually you become tired of it. This is the same for music. By listening too early you take away the feeling of festivity as it is no longer associated with the decorations and the general holiday cheer.
I recommend starting to listen to Christmas music around the middle of November. This way you start the holiday season early, and enjoy the happiness it brings you.
