I hope this is the right forum for this topic.
First the bad news. They’ve already started playing Christmas music in most of the stores and restaurants. And Advent hasn’t even started yet!
Now the good news. When I stopped into McDonald’s today, Christmas music was being played, and I started to inwardly grumble until I realized that the second and third songs I heard were SILENT NIGHT and O COME, ALL YE FAITHFUL. So it’s a little early, but Jesus was being piped into McDonald’s!
