Let's Be Honest: It's Always A Perfect Time To Play "Rockin' Around The Christmas Tree"
Who made all of these rules that said it's "too early" to listen to Christmas music before December? If you're feeling it's the right time to listen to a little Mariah Carey or Brenda Lee, then I say go for it!

No matter what's on your holiday wish list, the only thing you want this year is to be back home with your family. There really is nothing better than spending time with the ones you love — it's the only gift that's truly priceless.
Let's Talk Leftovers, Shall We?
