Christmas already!

Is it just me or are people ready for Christmas and the holiday season earlier than normal this year? I have noticed that people are itching to put up their decorations earlier than I can ever remember. There are even quite a few of you who already have Christmas trees up. Not sure if this has to do with the economy or maybe the colder weather this year.

Have you noticed the same thing?

It seems like the worse the economy is, the closer people stay to home and family. Maybe that translates into more eager decorating. I totally agree with you that people are getting started earlier than usual!

I dont really like to but since our Christmas party is always the first Saturday of December I have to start thinking about getting the decorations out in the middle of November!

I have noticed it but my husband is totally anti Christmas until after Thanksgiving dinner!

I totally agree with you! I think with the economy the way it is, people want some cheer right about now, which translates to christmas being even earlier than normal!

YES!!! And it's killing me!! LOL I just can't do it until the day after Thanksgiving. It's like an unwritten law, isn't it??

Amber said...

My son begged me to put up the tree in his room, so that's what we did! Usually we wait until Black Friday but for this year he can't wait LOL I think it's all over the place!

I have been having trouble getting in the mood for the holidays, which is weird for me because I LOVE them.

I have noticed alot of the stores have stuff up. Like Target had a Christmas aisle next to Halloween. Oh, and I also drove past a house yesterday that had pumpkins, a scarecrow, ice sicle lights and three candy canes out front lol. I was like PICK A SEASON! lol But, I will give the radio some credit. Usually out here in Philly/NJ they start the ALL CHRISTMAS ALL THE TIME station on 11/15 or there abouts. So far so good! lol Maybe there are waiting till Black Friday! As far as my decorations. They are in the apartment, but not out, and wont be out until the weekend after Thanksgiving! =)

Our neighbor has had their tree up for two weeks now. I love Christmas but I refuse to put the tree up before Thanksgiving.

I think that everything is going up earlier!! But part of me doesn't mind it!! I remember when my parents waited until the day after Thanksgiving, but it seems like no one does that anymore.
