Hey everyone, as you may know I've written a lot of hubs on halloween in the past few weeks. In hindsight I would perhaps have seperated these hubs and written about each topic in more detail, but oh well.
Anyway, I've run out of ideas for halloween hubs, and I was wondering if it's too early to start writing christmas hubs. So if you've got any suggestions on halloween hubs or you think that it's appropriate to write about christmas, then your responses would be much appreciated
It's NEVER too early for Christmas!!!
Just my opinion....
And it's a very valued opinion indeed thanks for your help.
Haha thanks.... But I'm similar to you, I wrote about Halloween and then just published a hub recently on Christmas music. I also wrote one on Thanksgiving, if you were looking for something in between ... Good luck!
Ive already done a christmas gift hub,will hopefully do a couple more before the months out,its not too early at all.
I agree, its never too early for Christmas! I missed the Halloween all the way around, had too much going on and it just slipped by. Hope to be more organized next year! Good luck!
A lot of hubbers start writing Christmas hubs in the summer so that they have time to age and gain authority before the festive season, so I would get writing so that you can capitalise on the Christmas rush
"Is it too early for christmas?"
Imho, writing a hub 3, 6, or even 9 months before an event is a darned good idea! Gives the critter time to develop backlinks, collect comments, be fallen in love with by the search engines, etc.
edit: And you can always go back and edit it.
I'd say it is actually bordering on "too late" but it never hurts to write more content.
I hope I haven't missed the optimum time I've only been writing halloween hubs over the past two weeks and they're doing pretty well.
No one knows exactly when Christmas is. The shepards were tending their sheep is indicative that the blessed event occurred during the spring. Now how would I know that?
But we celebrate Christmas in December
That's very interesting Druid Dude, really makes you thing.
Are they getting traffic from other Hubbers, or traffic from outside HubPages?
I wrote a Halloween hub that was/is a total piece of cr@p, but it is so demented that it’s actually getting traffic.
Awesome My halloween hubs caused me to get my first orders on amazon.
Rhysjc, I found that my Halloween hubs are getting orders on amazon, although they have slowed which makes sense. It's not too late for Christmas hubs. Quality content and a little effort with backlinks will shoot them past stuff that has been out longer.
My 17-year old daughter, my 12-year old son, and I were just talking about that yesterday. After a teen poetry slam at the local library, my daughter was telling me about the event when suddenly I thought of the poem "Twas the Night Before Christmas." At that i wondered outloud if it was too early to sing Christmas songs. I told my daughter and son of one year when I was a boy I brought out the Christmas albums before Halloween and how at the time I felt funny about it. However, my daughter's reply was "Nah! it's never too early for Christmas songs. That's like saying it's too late for Christmas songs. Christmas songs are good all year 'round." Then I broke into the song version of the poem. I sang one line and then my daughter joined in and recited the next line and we did that back and forth through about half the poem.
That's a lovely story, and the moral helps me with my problem
By the way I realize that the question was about whether it is too early to write hubs about Christmas. I would said no. When I was a sales rep at Circuit City (before the collapse) people started shopping for Christmas in October. So it would a good idea to start writing Christmas gift hubs and toy reviews anytime now.
Over on ESPN's website they have a columnist named Gregg Easterbrook who writes a long weekly column during the football season called Tuesday Morning Quarterback. Each week he devotes a portion of his column to various instances of "Christmas creep," as he likes to call it. Readers send in examples of stores putting up their Christmas stuff as early as mid-September.
That's really awesome, I'm going to have a look at that
Ah - Christmas creep! Thanks for bringing it up! Before joining HP, I was one of the people who complained about a too-early Christmas! But I learned how to embrace it, thus I wrote my first Hub on the holiday (on the early Christmas phenomenon, in June). It's never too early to write a Christmas Hub - so go ahead!
Shops where I live are already putting Christmas trees inthe windows and were already sending Xmas gift emails out on behalf of our ecommerce clients so I'd say NO - it's not too early for Christmas!
It is a good time to start writing about Christmas. The signs, symbols, decorations are already everywhere. Live Christmas.
There was a thread about this a few months ago. Although I'm not sure it's ever too late, most of the experienced hubbers were ready for Christmas by the end of August--or end of September at the latest.
Get those Christmas hubs up! People are already shopping for Christmas. Anything ordered can take a few weeks to ship. I realize shipping has improved, but you'll miss the boat if you wait.
Start writing the holiday hubs! It's never too early, but it can be too late.
3 months ago was a good time to start writing for Christmas :p
Saying that though I still have a load of unfinished Christmas hubs I need to write!

I went over to the mall today and they were playing Christmas songs in Sears. It is too early! I thought it was bad enough when they started after US Thanksgiving. And the Save the Children or another charity, can't remember which, is already playing John Lennon's So This is Christmas in their ads.

Is it too early for Christmas ads?I read a story about how Target was already starting their Christmas ads on tv, then I had the luxury (or not) of seeing it last night. Do you think it is way too early to start Christmas ads? Does the company who starts advertising first really get more of our...
