The Bates Love Christmas Music


When do you start playing Christmas music? After Thanksgiving? On December 1st? In the video below, Gil and Kelly Bates admit that their family cranks up the festive tunes in October.

Now that four of the19 children are married and have to balance time with their in-laws, the Bates family doesn't always celebrate Christmas on December 25th, but Gil and Kelly say they don't mind at all. "It's a special time, no matter when we celebrate it," said Kelly in a recent interview with UP.

  4. October??? I guess that maybe makes sense if they don't do Halloween?

  5. We love Christmas, too; but are always mindful of my mom's saying: "sing out of season, trouble without reason". So, we set out our Nativity, decorate and listen to Christmas music beginning Thanksgiving night. One holiday at a time!

  6. Do they like the non-religious music also?
