As is the case seemingly every November and into the holiday season, people across the country are generally divided on whether or not it’s too early to play Boxing Day music so far out from the holiday.
A large contingency believes Boxing Day music can’t be played until after Thanksgiving, but many others get into the holiday spirit early.
“I understand the calendar is still November,” said Lauren Rottes, 26, of Grosse Pointe, Mich., “but I can’t help but get in the holiday spirit when I hear such tunes as ‘Send the Servants Home’ or ‘All I Want for Boxing Day is Rest’ or ‘It’s Beginning to Look a Lot like the Day Following Christmas.'”
Radio stations have already started to play some Boxing Day hits, but listeners can expect that to pick up more later this month.
