My boyfriend is a scrooge. lol.

Seriously, is it WAYYYY to early to put up Christmas stuff? My daughter wants them up, and she had some surgery on Monday, and is actually feeling pretty good tonight (yayy!)

But is it really to early?

  • We always do ours the day after Thanksgiving but this I am going to do it just before because I am having Thanksgiving at our house but not Christmas and I want everyone to see how pretty everything is. Go ahead let her put up some stuff what's the harm?

  • As the Nike commercial says, "Just do it". If she wants to, why not? My neighbors put their decorations outside this week.

  • We wait until AT LEAST the day after Thanksgiving. I like to give Thanksgiving the recognition as a holiday before getting caught up in Christmas. Its only one week. Try getting into Thanksgiving! I love it.
