I passed a restaurant this evening that had full Christmas display on

The whole thing- reindeer,  plastic Santa, decorated tree, lights all over, what!!?

It just doesn't seem right. I can see why retail stores might have Christmas trees and decorations for sale, but actual decorations in front of the store!-  I can't get a happy Christmassy feeling from this.

What are your thoughts?

Commercialism has ruined the true meaning of Christmas.

We have neighbors already putting up lights and some friends have already put up their trees.

I am surprised! I thought everyone waited until after Thanksgiving. :)

 DH and i wait to decorate our store until after Thanksgiving. although i can see the benifits of putting up outdoor lights now while its not as cold as it will be in a few weeks here.

Last year we put up our Christmas stuff around this time. We did it for one reason! It was my sons first Christmas, a week before Christmas he was scheduled for open heart surgery. I wanted to make his first and maybe only (Thank God he is still with us!) to be the best!

The whole early Christmas thing this year has really put a damper on my holiday spirt this year. I'm not looking forward to Christmas at all this year.

I'm a traditionalist...decorations after Thanksgiving. Santa should 't be at the mall until Black Friday, after he make his appearance in the Thanksgiving Day Parade.

The whole little town (mainstreet)where I live is putting up lights and such... Course the whole place is kinda a tourist trap and they are running a polar express train from now till Christmas...so....
