    Decorate whenever you want – around my area some people decorate now, depending on how the weather looks a few weeks down the line.  Some places already have snow and it doesn’t look like it’ll be warming up…

    I usually wouldn’t decorate until after Thanksgiving, but we’ll probably be getting a tree a bit earlier this year. I say decorate whenever you want!

    I love Christmas too, but we always wait to decorate until the saturday after Thanksgiving. It’s become a little tradition at my house and my little nieces come over to help with the tree and lights. Sometimes waiting makes the anticipation stronger and it’s so much more exciting when you can finally do it.

    Madeline789:  Way too really! I think you should wait until at least thanksgiving has passed, but agree with pp who said December.

    Madeline789:  NOOOO! Lol… that’s one of the first things I thought about this morning LOL.

    I love Christmas as well, and Halloween is officially over, time for Christmas. At least for us Canadian Bees, for our American friends I would wait until after Thanksgiving.

    I’m a word, yes.

    Though I am extremely tolerant of people who put up lights early, because it can be a real pain and even more dangerous to do that in December versus November.

    There’s something very off about seeing Christmas decorations on Remembrance Day IMO.  Our Christmas lights are up (like about 1/3 of the houses around us), but they won’t be on until December.  Other decorations won’t go up until the end of Nov/beginning of Dec depending on when we have time.

    My rule is one holiday at a time.  I love Christmas, but Thanksgiving comes first!  As far as I’m concerned, the day after Thanksgiving is the start of the Christmas season.  We’re never home over Thanksgiving (we go to celebrate with my family), so we’ll decorate during the following week.

    Too early for Christmas. Way too early. It’s barely November. It’s fall, not year end.
