Current playlist is from an old carols CD from Coventry Cathedral choir, a compilation of pop singers' Christmas songs and Michael Buble's Christmas album from last year.

Never fails to put me in a good mood. Can almost smell the turkey, stuffing and yorkshires.

Fortunately the Hallowe'en stuff should soon be gone from the shops, and I can listen to Jingle Bells, Rudolph and Deck the Halls whenever I walk around a store.

Fantastic, the lot of it.

Who's with me?

YANBU to play Christmas songs.
YABU for having Yorkshires with Christmas Dinner.

Chocamochalatte Sun 28-Oct-12 12:57:33

Agree with Better!! grin

BadLad Sun 28-Oct-12 12:59:08

No yorkshires with Christmas Dinner?shock

Sounds like a Charles Dickens tale of woe.

Sallyingforth Sun 28-Oct-12 12:59:59

Disagree with Better!! sad

YABU You'll be sick of Christmas music long before you should start playing it.

YANBU about the Yorkshires. They should be compulsory with every roast dinner.

A bit early.

But so what.

Go for it. I love crimbo music too.

SoleSource Sun 28-Oct-12 13:00:23

Yorshires mmmm

Yabu for wishing the dreaded Chrimbo was here already sad

Christmas in our house is fun. No kids, so usually spend it with my parents.

My father was the youngest of six, so when he was about two his older brothers told him the untrue rumour that there was no Father Christmas, so he always wanted me to get really into the Christmas spirit.

I still get up and exclaim excitedly "Has he been?" at the ripe old age of 37.

Everlong Sun 28-Oct-12 13:04:52

No yorshires here on Christmas dinner. Feels wrong.

Not sure why?!

TheBigJessie Sun 28-Oct-12 13:14:18

Hmmm. Well, I want to say YABU, but I've decided to ask you the following, instead.

Are they your CDs/tapes/whatever? Are you entitled to have them in your possession?
Is the player yours or has the owner given you permission to use it?
Are you the electricity bill payer or has the bill-payer given you permission to use it?
Is the far too early music inaudible outside the property?

If you have answered yes to all those questions, I must reluctantly declare you reasonable.

But don't push it. Okay?

YABVVU for listening to Christmas music before December.

However YANBU on the Yorkshire pudding front. My dad would be traumatised if there were none for his Christmas dinner. What he would really like is a YP starter with gravy , like his mother used to do, but my mum won't let him. sad

BadLad Sun 28-Oct-12 13:27:58

Can safely answer a yes to all those questions.

Now browsing amazon for Christmas CDs to spice up the playlist.

(Doffs hat to Sonia's father).

LadyEvilBeagle Sun 28-Oct-12 13:28:24

I don't mind a bit of Christmas music AT CHRISTMAS.hmmgrin
I quite like it in the shops but not before December or I just get so sick of it.
Don't you ?
YABVU.
<Yorkshires are fine, though I find them a bit much if you have all the trimmings>

Started? blush

I don't think I've stopped yet.

Fairytail of New York
Have yourself a merry little christmas
let it snow....etc

I've been listening to these all year round when feeling pissed off and low.

BadLad Sun 28-Oct-12 13:37:17

Awesome - another!

I think about Christmas all year round - start talking about it to those who know me and how much I love Christmas round about July, then the Christmas prep in earnest begins in September / October.

With you on the listening to music any time. I watch a carol or song on youtube whenever I feel like it, all through the year.

Flojo1979 Sun 28-Oct-12 13:38:58

YANBU we watched The Snowman yesterday!

But yorkies? With white meat? V strange!

Molepom Sun 28-Oct-12 13:40:43

Nah..not the carols, you have to watch the John Lewis Ad's on youtube for that Christmas hit.

Everlong Sun 28-Oct-12 13:41:14

My favourite Christmas song is by Charlotte Church, I can't even think if it's name. Very moving ( to me )

But I remember one Christmas standing in my kitchen peeling sprouts, drinking sherry, sobbing at the tv! grin

Molepom Sun 28-Oct-12 13:41:24

Fairytail?

Fairytale - doh.

StuntGirl Sun 28-Oct-12 13:41:44

Ooh I listen to my Christmas playlist on and off all year grin I have already planned all my Christmas menus and have been stocking up on food and sweeties for Christmas for a few weeks. We've started present shopping already and I'll be making tree decorations and homemade crackers over the next month. Love it!

What's Christmas like in Japan badlad? (if I've remembered you right!)

BadLad Sun 28-Oct-12 13:42:44

Even if I lived in the UK I think I'd want yorkshires, but even more so now, as here in the land of rice and raw fish - and the countryside, not the big cities to boot - opportunites to eat the delicious delicacy that is the yorkshire are very few and far between.

Will have a slice or two of black pudding for breakfast too. In between presents!

Only seven weeks to go.

BadLad Sun 28-Oct-12 13:43:04

check that - eight weeks.

JamNan Sun 28-Oct-12 13:43:37

YAB MOST U confused
Can't we do Halloween, Guy Fawkes and Remembrance Sunday first, followed by Advent Sundays?

Meanwhile there's nothing wrong with making your Xmas pudding, cake and chutneys.

BumpingFuglies Sun 28-Oct-12 13:43:49

YABVVU. Christmas should not even touch until the week before Christmas.
<gavel>
<humbug>

Molepom Sun 28-Oct-12 13:44:49

I NEEEED Halloween and Bonfire night over with, then it really starts.
