It seems like Christmas begins to start sooner and sooner every year and Thanksgiving is totally over shadowed.  How do you feel about this?  Are you one of the ones who refused to put up any Christmas decorations prior to Thanksgiving or are you already thinking about getting the sleigh and reindeer out?

 How soon do you think you'll put your decorations up?  I have to find some time in my schedule, not to mention a day that the weather is decent to do the outside stuff.

Funny, I was just complaining about this! Every year, the city puts up decorations on all the light posts. They have been doing this earlier and earlier every year, and the last few years, they have gone up the day after Halloween. Well, this year, the decorations went up a couple of days BEFORE Halloween! It's crazy, lol. I like to wait until the week of Thanksgiving to drag out the Christmas stuff and put up our decorations. It keeps the kids occupied while they are home and we are preparing for Thanksgiving :o)

No joke!  Friday, the girls and I ran into Dollar Tree to get a couple of things real quick before picking up DH.  The whole front of the store was nothing but Christmas!  The girls wanted to do some fall decorating and with money being so tight, I thought I'd just get a few cheap things there, but saw nothing!   Guess I'll have to find some Michael's/Joann Fabrics coupons now!

Omg! Most of the stores here had Christmas stuff on display before Halloween! Annoying! Don't get me wrong I love Christmas but that's too early, IMO.

I don't get out Christmas decor until the day after Thanksgiving.
