Stop premature Christmas decorating

It’s the beginning of October and stores are flooded with Halloween candy and costumes. Mid October comes around and you start to see half the stores flooded with Halloween decorations and half the store flooded with Christmas decorations. Come November first, it’s a winter wonderland in fall.

Don’t get me wrong, I love Christmas and seeing beautiful colorful decorations everywhere, giving you a jolly feeling. But, wouldn’t it be an even better feeling having the jolly Christmas cheer… during Christmas… or after Thanksgiving at least?

Although Christmas music is made to bring you joy and can be very catchy, there isn’t quite the selection to choose from. So how much can you really take of listening to the same 10 songs over and over again for the next two months—at least.

Why are people starting to celebrate Christmas two months early, when they still have at least two other fall holidays they could decorate for; Halloween and Thanksgiving?

The fall season isn’t even half way done before some people are starting to bring the winter holiday in.

Would you start celebrating your sister’s birthday two months early, when you and your brother still have your birthdays coming up before hers? No, you wouldn’t. It would be rude if everyone just passed over your birthdays and continued onto your sister’s birthday.

So don’t be rude and ignore the Halloween or the Thanksgiving spirit of giving thanks and stuffing your face.

I say the perfect time to start gearing up into the Christmas spirit, is the day after Thanksgiving. That way the major fall holidays that people decorate for are over, and you can start Christmas shopping and decorating.

After all, the day after Thanksgiving is Black Friday. Which means, sales on everything; get a kick start on the Christmas shopping.
