Do you consider snowman decorations Christmas decorations or winter decorations? When do you start putting out your snowmen??

My SO considers anything related to snow Christmas decorations. I disagree!

My kids (teens) all throw a fit if I put out a snowman before Halloween or the first snow. This became a mutual agreement in my home between myself and everyone else in our home. Otherwise, as soon as the leaves start turning, falling and temps start falling (at night) I could start putting my snowmen out!

  • winter. i have Snowbabies, and they are winter. I put them away sometime in February, unless they are strickly Christmas related, then they are part of the Christmas stuff. But I put the regular winter ones out after Christmas anyways, since I have enough Christmas things.

  • Don't know, but I am going to start Christmas decorating this week. I leave it up as long as possible to enjoy it. I figure if the stores can do it, so can I. I'd rather enjoy it at home!!

  • Snowmen are winter. My mom is big on decorating - after halloween she puts up fall, then thansgiving, then winter, then Christmas, then more winter, snowmen go along with both winters & Christmas sets. A snowman is only specifically for Christmas if it has something Christmas-y on it.

  • Snowmen are winter and can be out from the day after Thanksgiving until the first of March

  • Winter, but they can certainly fit a Christmas theme.

  • Both. I use them at Christmas and Yule but leave them up during the winter also

  • I put them out with the Christmas decorations but I leave the snowman things out for the entire winter most of the time.
