How Early is Too Early for Christmas Decor?
The Rob & Kat Mykals were talking this morning about how early is too early to decorate for Christmas. Surprisingly, 26% of Americans have already started decorating and it's the first of November!
Listen, I LOVE Christmas! I would say I love Christmas MORE than the average American. However, people, it is TOO SOON for Christmas decorations! To me, anything before Thanksgiving is disrespectful to Thanksgiving. Let's enjoy the turkeys and the gord and the squash and all that bulls--t before we put a Santa hat on everything!
It's funny that we talked about this today because I was just discussing this with my boyfriend's mom. She will be in full Christmas decorating mode this week so she can enjoy the sparkle and flair of Christmas for a full two months. I do enjoy Christmas. I don't want you to think that I don't or that I am some kind of Scrooge, but I am a firm "not until after Thanksgiving" kind of person. In some recent years I have even waited until the week before Christmas to even put up a tree.
