Should You Be Concerned About Christmas Creep as a Hubber?

    We know all too well that Christmas is getting pushed back earlier. As early as even July (or June), the stores dedicate shelves to decorations of the holidays, and it's still hot outside! As early as late September, they start blasting out Christmas music.

    In recent years, I'm used to that. The main reason why is because I'm an online writer, and I want to be ahead of the game when it comes to Christmas Hubs.

    In fact, I published my first Hub specific to the holiday, the one on Christmas creep, on June 2010. Not only it give people information on the good and bad of a too-early Christmas, but publishing it months before the actual holiday season gave it emphasis!

    Should you gripe about the Christmas creep? Do you think it's a benefit as a Hubber to take advantage of it by writing Christmas Hubs earlier, even if you resent it? Tell me your experiences on writing them early if you had.

      Staying busy with other holidays takes care of worrying about this for me  For instance, did you know that Flag Day is June 14?  smile  But I know what you mean, Christmas music is rather grating in September.  At least it's only in the stores.  Radio does not do that. 

      One reason that it's so sad is because Thanksgiving is being brushed aside.  It's getting more difficult to find quality decorations for Thanksgiving, and some stores did not even offer them last year.  You've reminded me to start shopping for them early via the web--thanks!

    your right Christmas commercialism does happen earlier and earlier it seems.

    But you have a good point about writing hubs for Christmas as early as june it give them age before the season begins will give you more potential for views during the season.

    I say good going everyone should plan ahead so well.

    Me I don't hate it really since Christmas is one of my favorite holidays. But that may be just because I don't have much to worry about as far as getting gifts, and planning holiday events.

      Great points! Christmas creep fazes me less and less each year due to online writing, especially here on HP!
