As I mentioned in the Countdown thread, the Shoppers a couple blocks from my house had music playing last Friday. It was excellent! Nobody seemed to be complaining, really. I don't see how people can be offended by Christmas music while shopping in a store for five minutes. If you're in Shoppers for more than that, you should be at a grocery store - not a drug store.
"The bells, the bows and the flashing lights, the mistletoes and the 'Silent Nights. It's all for show, but that's all right. That's not why I love this time of year..."
