I'll admit that does kind of bother me a bit... I mean, they get into such a hurry to rush Christmas music on the radio, rush Christmas retail out into the stores, yadda-yadda-yadda, but immediately the day after Christmas, they waste no time yanking the Christmas music off the radio and such. I mean gee, there's like six days after Christmas before the New Year, we can't have a grace period to enjoy the calm down? Heck, Comcast's seasonal Music Choice channel still plays Halloween music like for the rest of the week after Halloween ends (but then again, they don't start at the beginning of October because they play German music for Oktoburfest)... but yeah, they're already playing 24-hour Christmas music, and they brought back their Christmas TV screensavers On Demand as well.Actually, my mom had almost the opposite problem when it came to Christmas carols on the radio. While she did think it kept getting earlier and earlier, she was very disappointed that the day after Christmas, they stopped that music entirely.
But then again, I think part of it is because other culturals DO try to end Christmas immediately the day after... Canada has what they call, "Boxing Day" on December 26, which is basically their excuse to try and make a special day out of boxing your decorations back up for the year.
