I have seen a lot of Christmas decorations up now before Thanksgiving, which I can understand, being they will have family to come and can enjoy the decorations a little longer, also being it takes a lot of time to put them all up, just to take them back down in a couple of weeks. Plus, if one is not going to see their family during Christmas, it adds to the festivities. Having said all of that, we usually put ours up, the first weekend in December.

Hi suzette, Yes, I love to experience each holiday's special tradition on its own. However, Christmas Eve is cutting it a bit short LOL. Thank you about my granddaughters. That photo was taken last Christmas of course! Blessings

Hi teaches, yes, that is about when we start decorating for Christmas too, and leave it up longer. Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours.
Hi quildon, I believe you are right about the stores and putting out decorations earlier and earlier each year, even in October, I saw Christmas decorations. That is about when we decorate, the first weekend in December.
Hi Crafty, that sounds so lovely for when family and friends who you may need see at Christmas to decorate on Thanksgiving and listening to Christmas music. It is a joy to decorate to get one in the mood, and I have not started shopping yet either!
Hi suzzycue, thanks for answering. Yes, back in October, my husband and I went into a restaurant/retail chain store, and it had all three holidays set up, Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas. It was overwhelming. Yes, there is plenty of time.
I meant to write Black Friday LOL Black Christmas is a movie. Anyway that almost happened in my store where they decorated all three holidays at once but they honored November 11 Rememberance Day before decorating for Christmas.
Hello nancynurse, thank you for answering. Personally, I like to celebrate each holiday as its own too. But I can understand why some go ahead and do have it all up at Thanksgiving for family reasons or just to enjoy the season longer.
