How early is too early to begin the Christmas decorations?

How early is too early to begin the Christmas decorations?
I know Christmas is the time of year for many where they look forward to celebrate the season with gifts and food and decorations. When exactly is the appropriate time to begin decorating the yard and decking the halls and trees? Is it a family or community decision? Do you wait for the signs of the season, like perhaps the first Christmas Carol on The radio or for those who live in a cold climate the first snowflake or the onslaught of social media calibration from shopping stores deals to Christmas decors on the websites and even TV stations? When is your ideal time to decorate and is there such a thing as starting the decorations too early?

We normally start buying the decorations in November. We don't like the last minute rush. In my country by mid November people start preparing for Christmas. You will also find many items on sales. We start decorating the house at the start of December. Christmas is now another commercial festival. Sellers just try to convince customers to buy things they don't really need.

Anytime before December is too early. In the good old times, the towns and cities weren't decorated in the middle of November. Nobody went out and bought the decorations, presents, or set up a tree a month in advance. I hate that and I never do it. It's far too commercial and the shops only want to increase their profit. My family starts decorating a week or so before Christmas. We don't do anything over the top either - just very homey and cozy.

I agree with you, nowadays everyone will just run and buy decorations and everything immediately, it almost looks like Christmas is in the middle of November. We usually start decorating things in my country around December, and that's the way it should be.

How early to begin buying Christmas decorations or how early to begin putting them up? Well to how early to buy them you should probably buy it sometime in the Summer if possible since it may be the cheapest at about that time and less competition. For putting it up I would say if you haven't put up that little Christmas countdown calender on your door yet, then you probably shouldn't be putting up any decorations externally though I'm pretty sure no one would mind if you put up some stuff in your house before December or even never took it down from last year.

I think that any time before the first of November is too early to start decorating for a Christmas. There is nothing wrong with Christmas shopping all year though. It is good to be prepared for it a head of time so that you are not so stressed for the holiday season. I usually start to decorate around mid November. I love Christmas and all the beautiful lights and decorations and all the hustle and bustle that goes with it. It is my favorite time of the year.

I think anything before the mid November is a bit too early. After the mid November people can get started with the purchase and the decoration. I have seen people bringing the tree. Some people bringing the fake tree. So it all can make sense. And you can see that this type of the celebration does make sense. We just have to understand how the different people have their own routine.

We tend to have our Christmas tree up on the 1st of December. That's when we start decorating the house to make it ready for Christmas and start doing a bit of shopping as well. Anything before the 1st of December is just too early for us. I know that a lot of stores get ready right after Halloween but it just feels weird shopping for anything Christmas related that early. In terms of presents, we tend to buy them a bit late, maybe around the 15th of December.

Over here, there are people who are ultra excited over Christmas that when September comes in, they start decorating their home. My take on the topic is that let other holidays happen and be celebrated or observed. Can you imagine some houses with decorations of Halloween and Christmas? That is silly. The best time to decorate is late November or early December.

Some people start the christmas preparation as early as November to begin their christmas decorations while for others they start when it is two weeks to christmas time.

It is definitely early. Over here the first flashing lights and Christmas decorations usually come along when December begins and not before that. Let's not forget that there is Thanksgiving waiting for us before Christmas still

I normally break mine out around 3 weeks before Christmas day. They're all usually up two weeks before Christmas, and come down two days after January 1st. I know some people who put them up right after Thanksgiving. That's way too early for me.

I believe if one start any preparation from the first week of December is not too early or late, I believe it would just be the appropriate time.I know people love Christmas period and can't just wait for it but starting too early wouldn't make sense because before the period is here the excitement must have worn out,so it good to start at the appropriate time to keep the excitement tempo high.

I guess it all depends on what you plan to prepare for Christmas. If you plan to have a great party, you should definitely prepare a few months before. Here in my country it is very common to see the preparations begin at the end of October. However, I have seen prepatives begin before that. The trade usually exaggerates and usually they are already talking about Christmas at the end of August. Either way, it all depends on your intensity.

The best time is at least 2 weeks before Christmas day. My mom used to make us to put up the fake Xmas tree, wrap up empty gift boxes, decorate the tree with cotton buds, ornaments and lightnings. it was a dreaded job but she insisted. Then she would leave the tree there for another one month before disassemble it.

I am not a Christain, therefore, I don't celebrate Christmas. However, when I get an invitation to Chrismas parties, I always make sure to attend Christmas parties. Since we don't celebrate Christmas, there will be no Christmas decoration in my home. Christmas is a holiday in my country because the country law recognizes Christanity. For me Christmas is just a one day leave.

Anything before December 10th would be considered way too early where I live.

As apart from the fact that - we don't celebrate Christmas in the same way as other western countries here and even when we do its not celebrated in a commercial way - but is a low key family orientated affair with all the festivities centered around the children - that doesn't involve having days of large feasts, receiving lots of gifts or decorating homes with Christmas trees, lights or any other kind of decoration.

Our Christmas traditions are really very simple and generally only ever start with a celebration of the beginning of the Christmas season on

December 10 - which is not only the day when town squares are decorated with elaborate nativity scenes - made by the local children - and when the very subtle Christmas lighting - normally in the form of snowflakes or stars - is switched on.

But its also the day when Christmas shopping traditionally starts - which as this is usually celebrated with the arrival of Medieval Christmas Markets in most towns and villages - and the stall holders - selling artisan Christmas products from years gone by - are all dressed in medieval Christmas attire - it really adds a festive atmosphere to shopping and the lead up to Christmas.

It's traditional to begin on the 1st December and that includes sending out cards unless it is to people abroad. I know people like to dress the house up with lights and to make the most of them, and I find those quite annoying with the flashing to be honest. I think the stores have to plan it towards the middle of November if they have a Father Christmas so most people in the US do it after Thanksgiving in the home.

It's never too early for me. I actaully start planifiying my christmas decoration in november or earlier. I'm one of those "crazy" people who get the tree in the middle of november and has everything set for the first days of december. Christmas is my favorite holiday and since I love the season that much I like to start early with it. Christmas decoration is serious thing for me.

Most people start decorating for Christmas the day after Thanksgiving.

Here at home we will begin preparations in the middle of November. I think this is an ideal time to organize gifts, effects, travel and other preparations for the end of the year. If you're going to have a big party, I think it's best to start the preparatory work at least in early November.

Honestly, when I was a child, you never really saw Christmas decorations being put up until after Thanksgiving. Now it seems like everyone is in a rush to get their decorations up. I think Mid Novemember is the earliest you should see Christmas decorations and preferably waiting until after Thanksgiving is ideal. I don't know if anyone has Christmas decorations up now,,but the stores have been ready for weeks..They probably can't wait to crank up their Christmas sound systems!

When it comes to supermarkets I just hope they won't start decorating things for Christmas before Halloween. It seems like November is Christmas season now. I prefer that people start decorating in December, maybe two weeks or so before the Holidays. When the season starts too early it doesn't even look as Christmas because the weather still is autumnal.
