    Madeline789:  I always wait until after Remembrance Day, out of respect. After that, decorations and Christmas music are fair game!

    Madeline789:  Definitely too early. I usually wait until the beginning of December. I hate it when people start decorating before November 11 which is Remembrance Day. Seems disrespectful.

    Madeline789:  Who cares? I was actually just having a conversation on facebook about this. Her back Story: One of her preschool aged boys has autism, recently diagnosed, and they’re a strong family but have had their world rocked. Who cares if the kids are in Santa hats. My back story: I lost my mom unexpectedly last year and have totally quit caring what most people think of me. If I want to celebrate something I do! Why not bring a little more joy to the world??

    Her post: 

    Checking out of Walmart, the woman behind me saw the boys in Santa hats & said, “Santa hats?!? It’s not even Thanksgiving!!”. As dramatically & sarcastically as possible, I looked at her & said, “OMG, it’s not?!?”.

    Seriously, why do people get so bent out of shape about when to start/stop celebrating Christmas? I’ll do what I want while you do what you want & we can both mind our own business about it!

    Don’t be a South Pole Elf.

    My response: Once you’ve experienced something that changes your life and you realize how short it is…you just kind of give up on caring what other people think and do your own thing. I am so there with you! You rock those Santa hats! I saw a (our local NFL team) Santa hat at the football game today, too!

    I am a grinch so I don’t think Christmas decorations should go up ever, but if it’s before December, you need to hold your damn horses.

    I voted yes its too soon,  but ask me again on Wednesday and my answer will have changed. Im Canadian so were already done Thanksgiving, and after Remembrance day tomorrow any time is fair game in my books! Especially since we already have 2 feet of snow on the ground!
