When do you start putting up fall or Halloween decorations?

Fall is my favorite time of the year! Ive already ordered fall and halloween hand soaps from bath and body works. Im already burning my pumpkin spice candles! Ive bought a few new halloween and fall home decorations! When would be an appropriate time to start decorating? The first day of fall is Sept 23. do people usually decorate before then?

  • I hold onto summer for as long as I can =/ I will start to decorate mid to end of september, maybe I may even wait until october depends on my LO's mood if she asks to decorate beforehand we will.

  • Fall decor is out on Sept 1. Halloween goes out on Oct 1. Thanksgiving goes out on November 1. All Fall stuff gets put up on the day after Thanksgiving (after the Christmas shopping, of course).

  • October. At least in October I can be reasonably sure that they won't melt, rot in two days, or blow away in a hurricane. We don't really get a 'fall' here in the lowcountry of SC. Most of the time it goes from too hot to die to a month of rain, followed by vaguely chilly (40's-50's). I miss fall.

    I miss spring as well.
