Most Rradio stations turn off the Christmas Music at midnight on December 25. Many start playing it in mid October. A few play it past December 25. The song "The 12 Days of Christmas " is familiar to everybody. Christms season lasts until Jaunary 6th Epiphany Day. It commemorates the Baptism of Jesus by John the Baptis. Some traditons commemorate the gifts of the Maji on that date. Aslo some Eatern Orthodox groups Russians, Serbians and Ukraninains and other groups from the former Soviet Union and Yougoslavia - plus the Coptic Christians in Egypt celebrate Christmas on January 7 because thery follow the Julian Calendar which is 13 days late. In England untill the mid 1700's they also used the Julian Calendar.
One of the cable music channels plays Christmas Music until January 5th or 6th. if you can listen to it enjoy it. Some people especially in colder weather will not be able to take down outside decorations untill the weather gets better.
As of now I have 2 more presents I have to give out.
One of the cable tv music stations taht plays holiday music is still playing Christmas music as of now. It will probably stop soon. Then they will play music for Valentines Day then Mardi Gras then St. Pat's Day. Both new Years Eve and St. Pat's day are just excuses to go drinking. I used to like Halloween as a kid but Halloween has too many occult overtones. Dans macabre by Camille Saint Seans is often played around Halloween. Around November1st You start hearing Christmas music agian and seeing Christmas decorations beingput up again.
