How early is too early to begin with 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? Is it a family or community decision? Do you wait for the signs of the season's 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?

Christmas is the most wonderful period of the year. I like the family gatherings and also to party with my friends. We have already started to buy some of the decorations. We like to prepare everything in advance. We normally start decorating the house and the yard by mid-December. Since some years I have been making D.I.Y Christmas cards for my friends and relatives. They love receiving personalized cards. I have also started to work on those cards as it is time consuming.

I start my decoration from the tenth of December, I love the atmosphere and environment to be electric enough for Christmas.Let everywhere be frenzy and excitement.So anytime from the first week of Dec is good for me, it always good to prepare early so as to put everything that needed to be up in the right time and at the right time.

Every time you want there nothing bad about that. They have no right to force to stop you because that's your decision. We all know celebrating Christmas is one of the most happiest occurrence every year. :)

I guess the decision should be done by the family. In our culture, once the 'ber' months starts, that is the time that we will set up the christmas trees, mistletoes, etc. The shopping done for those decorations are done 2-3 months before christmas so that we can avoid crowded malls and we can be able to pick on a wider variety of designs because once the end of November starts, the crowding of people on markets and malls starts. You wouldn't be able to shop properly and it will definitely take more time.

I think that everybody will interpret this differently but for me, if you start celebrating Christmas before December it's simply too early. When I was a child, there were no decorations three months earlier... only a week, maybe two. It's just an excuse for the shops to grab the attention of the consumers to make them spend money on all sort of things.

I guess I've answered a question concerning this in the other post, but I would have to say again that the ending week of November that brings about the first week of December is the best period to start getting set for the celebration. This is the period that many are still thinking of whether to be the first that will start this, so when you lead, everyone will come around to see how creative you are when it concerns decorating the Christmas trees at this period.

Normally around Christmas time, I don't begin putting my decorations up until the 2nd week of December. I don't take them down until a week after the New Year is rang in.

A lot of us put our decorations before December. Usually, after Halloween. Some countries love celebrating the Christmas season early. It's because it only comes once a year. So they prepare in advance to feel jolly good.
