Even though it was a few weeks ago, it feels like we just wrapped up Halloween last week. In fact, I still have two little pumpkins in my kitchen window…. decorated with glitter and finger paint.
Isn’t it crazy to see the store shelves full of Halloween costumes on one side…. and then Christmas decorations on the other side? Honestly, it kind of annoys me. Let’s finish Halloween before we start Christmas. And I’m sure most would say let’s finish Thanksgiving first too.
We have a rule in our house that we must finish Thanksgiving festivities before we start decorating for Christmas. We usually get the tree out from the attic the first weekend in December. (don’t judge.. I’m a fake tree kinda gal)
I keep seeing pictures on my personal Facebook page of people already putting their tree up. I can’t imagine having Thanksgiving with my Christmas tree in the same room!
It makes me wonder why we are all rushing the holidays? Is it the buying of gifts and the non-stop commercials for Black Friday that make us want to celebrate sooner? Or is it that we really just love seeing a pretty tree decorated for the holidays? This doesn’t mean I don’t love seeing Christmas decorations early (especially at Disney World), but in my house… it’s gotta be at least December before we start the festivities!
So… when do you start decorating for the holidays?
