Holiday Decor: How Soon Is Too Soon?

0

It seems every year stores start putting out Christmas decorations earlier and earlier, and Halloween now appears to be the start of the official holiday season.

This month’s question is: How soon is too soon to start decorating for the winter holidays, listening to holiday music, and watching holiday movies? When do you begin doing these activities?

Too soon is before Thanksgiving. I begin doing all of these things after celebrating Thanksgiving.

Too soon is before Halloween. I’ve always considered Thanksgiving an attached holiday to Christmas so I don’t mind decorating before that. My tradition is to start the day after Thanksgiving. I’ll listen to holiday music year-round, or some classics like Nightmare Before Christmas that you can watch year-round, even in the summer.

Too soon for holiday music and decorations is before Thanksgiving. The appropriate time to start listening and decorating the house or tree for Christmas is the day after Thanksgiving, or week after Thanksgiving. I will watch Christmas movies before Thanksgiving.

Anytime after Thanksgiving is good. I start listening and decorating Thanksgiving weekend, and absolutely not before, because it drives me nuts.

Too soon for Christmas is before Thanksgiving, and once Thanksgiving is over you can start getting ready to put some Christmas stuff out —  not right away but pretty soon after. I don’t really listen to holiday music; if anything, the week of.
