Is it to early to put up Christmas decorations?

I'm so anxious and excited!! My son is three this year and I really think he is going to understand most of what's going on, and I'm ready to get started!!!

  • I really think it depends on your personal preference. I usually wait until Thanksgiving is over. (Okay, the day after.) However, all up and down my block there are houses already getting it done.

  • I'm going to put the lights and figures outside on Friday it's going to be 65, perfect weather for that. However, we don't turn them on until Thanksgiving night.

  • Personally, I think it's too early. We don't even consider doing anything until after Thanksgiving.
