This has been a huge topic of conversation recently. How soon is too soon for Christmas decor?
I have to admit, I do not like Christmas decorations before Thanksgiving. It doesn't really affect me if someone decorates though, so if you are a pre-Turkey Day decorator, I don't hate on you. But I do think that rushing Christmas makes the season less special. I don't know about you, but I think I would burn out on Christmas movies and music if I listened to it from November 1 to December 25. That's almost 2 months! I would rather enjoy the fabulousness of Thanksgiving and then start celebrating the Christmas season the Friday after. I love how Nordstrom will be doing just that:
After all, how awesome is Thanksgiving? Cooking great food, traveling to see loved ones, the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade, watching football on Thanksgiving Day and the college rivalry games that weekend, eating turkey shaped gingerbread cookies (is that just me?) and other pumpkin wonderfulness, and wearing an autumnal Thanksgiving Day outfit. I also love doing Turkey Trots/Hobble then Gobble/Thanksgiving Day races. And of course, think and reflect on how fortunate we all are. It's important to remember to be grateful for what and who we have in our lives.
How do you feel about celebrating Christmas before Thanksgiving?
