We believe that the perfect time to begin playing holiday music is Thanksgiving night or on Black Friday. Why?

After a long hard year, there is only one right way to end it. The Holidays! Thanksgiving, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, Christmas, and New Year’s are all vital events at this time of the year. What really makes these events special is the music. Many big artists like Mariah Carey and the late Frank Sinatra have recorded Christmas music albums to enhance the warmth of the Holidays. Even former One Direction member Liam Payne is coming out with a Holiday album this year. But, some feel that playing this music too early or too late can ruin the experience. So, when exactly is the right time to start playing holiday music?

You can enjoy Thanksgiving with the people you care about, with some fun holiday tunes. Playing holiday music on Black Friday allows you to set the tone for holiday shopping while enjoying the season. If you begin to play holiday music before, it won’t feel right as you will have to pass Thanksgiving before the Holiday season. If you begin to listen to holiday music after this time, you will feel that the season passed by too quickly and will be waiting for next year. This is not a pleasant feeling. 

Now some Nighthawks may claim that they do not have any good Holiday Music to listen to. This is no longer a valid excuse. Many free music streaming apps such as spotify have great holiday music playlist. Some of our favorite songs include “All I want for Christmas” by Mariah Carey, “Feliz Navidad”,  and “Last Christmas” by Wham. If you don’t celebrate Christmas, there are many more songs. Even Adam Sandler has his own Hanukkah Song. Stop waiting around and discover your hidden passion for holiday music! And remember, begin playing on Thanksgiving night.
