When is too soon to put up Christmas decorations?

I see so many up already and I would like to take them down. At least until after I eat my turkey.

  • I agree, it is too soon before Thanksgiving but some of those are never taken down to begin with......

  • If you live in states that the weather can flip flop from beautiful to nasty snow storm over night, then it's
    good to put them up right after Halloween and if so before Thanksgiving weather permitting...
    As for me personally I live in one of those states, but since I am not doing Thanksgiving dinner I put my
    decorations up inside and out, but do not light them daily until Thanksgiving night or the day after...

  • I think everyone should wait until they are done eating thanksgiving turkey, I love to decorate the day after thanksgiving, but I take them all down after new years.

  • Well, I put mine up inside before Thanksgiving. I put up everything inside starting the Monday before Thanksgiving because that way the house is nice and festive feeling for Thanksgiving gatherings. BUT the tree never goes up until the first weekend in December because we go cut it down at a christmas tree farm, and the outdoor decorations never go up before then either just because not everyone enjoys seeing them, and I just don't have time to do it the week before Thanksgiving. I personally LOVE seeing the decorations up early. I think people should be able to put them up whenever they feel like it (I mean before Halloween would be a bit ridiculous but whatever, it doesn't affect me lol).

  • I usually put mine up the weekend after Thanksgiving. My sister put hers up a week ago. I thought that was too early. We once had a neighbor that kept her tree up all year long. During the off season, she would just move it to her back porch. Of course she had to have it perfect.
