I need an opinion

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 

Okay, so You all know we are celebrating Brandon's birthday on Sat. My question is, we usually don't have people over during the holidays so, should I put up my Christmas decorations now so that everyone can see our house all decorated, or should I wait. No one will see them if I wait (probably.) What do you all think?

Hmmm.... kinda early for decorations for me, but if you really want to show your family and friends what your place is like for the holidays, I say go for it! And Brandon might get a kick out of it as well!

(I'm also the one that hates going to the stores after July 4 and seeing halloween stuff )

Put it up! I only say that because I'm putting all my stuff up today.

Do you have time to put everything up? Or would it be a big burdon to put it all up early for his party?

I should be able to get it all up. I'm just gonna do it before Brent gets home from work The hardest part will be convincing him to do the tree

I would say put it up if that is what you want to do. I would wait on the tree till after Thanksgiving though.

You could put up some stuff - decorate one room maybe, and explain that you wanted them to see your house decorated (it might be a good hint for them to visit during the holidays, too!)

I wouldn't put up all the decorations though, or any of the outside ones. I don't celebrate Christmas, but my family does, and I did as a child. I always feel a little weird seeing Christmas stuff up (as decorations) or hearing Christmas music played in stores before December 1st. I don't object to seeing Christmas stuff for sale - I realise that Christmas shopping is best done early, and probably spaced out.

Personally, in general, I would wait til the 8th of December, but that's me.

My partner and I celebrate Yule, around December 21st, and we put some decorations (not many, I guess I'm a little Spartan with them!) usually around the 15th or so. Yule isn't as big as Christmas though. (We spend Christmas with BF's family).

I would put them up, you put all that money into decorations, a person should get the fullest use out of them.

And of course i am putting mine up this weekend.
