    Day after Thanksgiving. I freakin’ love Christmas music! Most people I know either hate it or don’t care about it. My fiance is sweet enough to get excited about it with me, even though he doesn’t really care for it. I actually tried to convince some of my friends to see Manheim Steamroller with me this year and they all thought I was crazy.

    The day after Thanksgiving the tree goes up and you know I’m listening to some Christmas tunes. But Thanksgiving comes first!

    After I finish watching the Toronto Santa Claus Parade, which I watch every year.  It’s the kick off to my holiday season.

    We don’t have thanksgiving here, and it is summer at Christmastime, but I bust out the Christmas music in the few weeks leading up to Christmas. I have a tradition of listening to the Disney 24 Christmas Favourites CD when I decorate the tree and take it down. When my parents first bought the house, nearly 30 years ago, Mum asked Dad to get a nice Christmas CD, thinking he would get a choir singing christmas carols or something, he bought the Disney CD, thinking Mum would like it, he prefers classical music. Neither of them like it much now, and only will listen to it when the tree is being decorated.

    This Jew looooves Christmas!  My guy is non-Jewish, so I’ve celebrated with him for the past 8 years.  I listen to Christmas music all year round, whenever the desire hits me, although it really springs up around this time of year.

    The first day of Advent or right after Thanksgiving… depending on how antsy I am for the Christmas season. Same goes with the decorating.. but the weekend Advent starts is normally a good time to start both. But we also keep our Christmas stuff up until Epiphany (12th day after Christmas)

    Thanksgiving. I hate when Walmart and Target and other stores bust out the Christmas music and decorations before Halloween. Come ON.

    I always get into the Christmas spirit and start listening to Christmas music after the American Thanksgiving!

    Dec 1.  I’m a little surprised that wasn’t a poll option, as I thought many people used the start of the month.  I think traditionally that came from advent though, which would actually be a bit earlier (I think?).

    Here, I think Thanksgiving is way too early.  There was also snow today in the province, which would make it about a week before Thanksgiving!

    I’d like to say right after Thanksgiving, but let’s be honest.  I’m ready to play that good stuff by like Halloween.  As much as I hate the cold and snow I LOVE LOVE LOVE all things Christmas!  We usually have our tree/decorations up the day after Thanksgiving (last year we were slacking and did it 2 days after Thanksgiving!).  I’m pretty sure my SO does it to appease me.  I always let him pick out or cut down any tree he wants at the Christmas tree farm so he feels involved in the process, too. 🙂

    @AB Bride:  I wonder if Dec 1 is a Canadian thing, since obviously early October (our Thanksgiving) is way too early. 

    But yeah… December 1 = first day of advent calendar chocolate and my tunes.  I usually also put up our tree the first available evening after Dec. 1.
