Over the weekend I stopped in TJ Maxx for a new pan and about a quarter of the store had been taken over by Christmas. Of course, this is nothing new… Target put their Christmas stuff up as soon as they cleared out the Halloween costumes. Also, I noticed yesterday that one of the local radio stations has also already started playing Christmas music around the clock.
For me, I basically don’t even think about Christmas – which includes no decorating, no shopping and no Christmas music – until Thanksgiving has passed. This year, my family is coming over for Thanksgiving dinner a few days AFTER the holiday, so I decided to put our tree up early so everyone can enjoy it.
Which brings me to thinking…. for you, when does it feel *right* to start decorating for the holidays?
Are you like my friend Lindsey who already has everything up (complete with watching holiday movies on the Hallmark channel) because it makes her happy? Do you just bring out all the décor when you have free time? Or, is there a certain day that you do your annual unpacking and decorating?
I’m super curious… so share in the comments and let me know when unbox your holiday spirit!
