Christmas music has returned and the most popular holiday tune in Iowa is one that you, unless you've lived under a rock since the 60's, know extremely well.

Lately, there's been a lot of chatter about Mariah Carey's alleged lip-syncing at the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade, her copyright dispute over owning the term "Queen of Christmas", and it's all just way too extra for me. Her hit song from 1994 "All I Want For Christmas Is You" does chart every holiday season. But this year, according to Finance Buzz, it is only the favorite in two states.

And let's not forget there are other iconic Christmas albums in the rotation too.


Listen To Christmas Music

You can stream the classic Christmas bops on B100's Holiday Channel while you're shopping, baking, or preparing the house for yet another family gathering this month. For me, nothing says "holidays" like an airport playing instrumental Christmas songs while exhausted parents are screeching at their kids. Glad tidings indeed.

When To Begin Listening To Christmas Music?

Like the QC, the country is pretty split on when to begin listening to Christmas music. My family has always been of the belief that that begins after Thanksgiving. That's when we'll start with the Christmas carols.

The study asked 1,200 adults when they thought it's acceptable to listen to Christmas music. Here's what they found.

Either way, it's after Thanksgiving now so it's perfectly fine.
