Updated Countdown Clock for 2016 Season



Attention Christmas music nerds:  The calendar may, indeed, say May.  But that doesn't mean it isn't time to interrupt your inboxes about Christmas music.  Check out the homepage of the "Can I Listen to Christmas Music?" project and you'll find a brand, spanking-new countdown clock.

We upgraded the clock this year to make it a responsive object and one that you can embed in your friendly blog or tumblr or what-have-you, if you are so inclined.  And...being subscribed to a Christmas Music countdown site, me thinks you're inclined.

Check it out here.  We've also pasted the official CILTCM countdown clock below, too, but we're not sure it will show up in email.   You *might* need to click here to see the clock in this full post.  Otherwise, enjoy below:


This year, we've called the *official* CILTCM date/time for Christmas music.  It is Tuesday, November 1, 2016 at 6:00 am Central Standard Time.  That gives us 10 hours after the close of Trick-or-Treating on Halloween to transition over and - without shame - start thinking about, and listening to Christmas music.

Oh...and, if you'd like to share this with your friends, send them here to subscribe to Can I Listen to Christmas Music via email.

Can I listen to Christmas Music Yet?

Discover when it is ok to turn on the Bing Crosby and Vince Guaraldi.

Hooray! Today is *THE* day (in 2015) we can start listening to Christmas music!

Halloween is over.  This is your annual reminder that Christmas music is NOW permissible across the United States.  Should you be blasting it and going crazy?  Probably not.  We mean...it is ONLY November 1st for crying out loud.  But if you want to?  Go ahead.  Put on the Bing Crosby.  The 'all-Christmas' station won't turn over for a bit, so here's one of our favorites, Bob Dylan doing "Must be Santa".

Yes! Today is *The* Day!

It has been 311 long, agonizing days.  But we made it!  Today marks the turning point towards the holiday season.  Sure, there's still that pesky Thanksgiving and it's needy stuffing to be dealt with, but let's be honest:  it is all Christmas from here on out.

And that means, officially, that we can now tune into Christmas music.  Go ahead, break out the She and Him Holiday record.  Or that weird Bob Dylan Christmas in the Heart album from a few years back.  You can!  Nobody is going to judge.

The countdown clock on the homepage now says ZERO.  Let's celebrate with a little "Baby it's cold outside."
