If you were to ask me directly, I would say just about anytime is too soon for Christmas decorations. I’m not a big fan of the holiday myself, due to it slowly turning into a complete cooperate/consumer based holiday with much of the proper ‘jolly’ and ‘righteous’ attitudes being left in the dust in wake of ‘want, want, want’, and ‘buy, buy, buy’.
When I was younger I was enthralled by the holiday. I mean it was the time of the year where I got to get new stuff! The decorations were also much more exciting. As I’ve been growing older, the holiday has been becoming just excessively more annoying to me. So many people put up Christmas lights and their tree right after, or even before Halloween. That’s way too early!
Stores even start moving out Halloween stuff to put up Christmas crap up to 2 weeks before Halloween! What if you wanted to get some more damn Halloween decor. No! Christmas slams that request to the floor saying, “look at me. Why aren’t you looking at ME!”. And I go, “How can I not see you Christmas? You’re already right here! You’re everywhere!”
There needs to be a rule. You should have your Christmas tree out December 1st the earliest. That’s when ‘Tis the season’ officially starts in my book. Not on my Turkey Day! Not On any other day before December. Hell, December 1st is too early. But at least it’s still December. Same goes for Christmas music. That is like the worst thing ever created in the music world.
It’s up there with listening to ‘It’s A Small World’ over and over while on the iconic ride. You just want to hop off that boat and get out of there. But you can’t. You’re there for the children (whether it’s your own or the animatronics). Besides the fact, I know I’m not the only one out there who feels this way! The Christmas season has really gotten out of hand, invading other holidays kind how cockroaches invade unclean kitchens (Thanksgiving would be the kitchen of the holidays).
