How Early is Too Early to get Excited for Christmas?

How early is too early to start getting in the Christmas spirit? If you’re like me then you’ve probably been listening to Christmas music since October 1st. I understand that people don’t want to rush the year away and skip over other holidays like Halloween and Thanksgiving, but this time of year goes by way too fast so why not just get in the spirit early.  At our age, the only excitement around Halloween and Thanksgiving is getting drunk with family and friends or gaining 10 pounds in one day. College kids do those things every weekend, so what makes these two holidays all that different?  In my opinion, the whole Christmas season is more fun because you keep doing what you normally do, but all the aspects of Christmas are able to be enjoyed for more than just one day.
