it's time for Christmas music

My name is Elise and I listen to Christmas music any time of year.
You read that right.

Today I had a moment where I was like "Okay, the next person who tells me I'm ungrateful for listening to Christmas music before Thanksgiving is going to get a fistfull of snow right down their esophagus." But I mellowed out, turned on my JB Christmas album, and started this post.

The real bliss of both holidays is spending time with family, rejoicing in things you have, and blessing others' lives. Isn't it? To me, it all starts with that first chilly day and the first glimpse of snow. Those are the things that make me want to cuddle up with loved ones. November begins and we put a focus on gratitude. Some of the things I'm most grateful for in my life are my family, music, and the life of my Savior. Tell me again why it's inappropriate to listen to music that celebrates the start of His life before Thanksgiving?

Christmas music is uplifting. It's happy, joyful, and much of it focuses on Jesus Christ. Give me some well-written, well-performed Thanksgiving music to listen to and you better believe it'll be on my playlist. The holiday season is a beautiful time for celebration, gratitude, and love. I'm going to listen to any music that I feel reflects that with a grateful attitude.
