Thread: What's your Start of Christmas?

  1. #1

    Cool What's your Start of Christmas?

    Hey Guys.. thought i'd say Hi to all by starting off a thread, so Hi :

    So, What's the beginning of Christmas for you guys...?? when does it really kick off, like seriously when you feel, it's here!

    Well, here in Ireland for me it's when a show called "The Late Late Toy Show" is on which is a once a year show on a Friday night at the end of November and the host gets kids to show off the this years must have toys, as well as live performances and Carols and Christmas goodness.. it really is the best, and then I know It's Christmas

    Usually the next day i'll get the Christmas songs out!

    But the real bummer for me is I have exams up to a week before Christmas.. very annoying, makes it extra stressful

    But what about you guys?

    When the stores start removing their Halloween items, it's the beginning of Christmas spirit for me. Of course, Thanksgiving is sandwiched in there.

    About the end of September. But don't really get into decorations until after Thanksgiving.

    Yes.. but its not until decorations go up generally end of November till it kicks in, until then people just complain about it getting earlier and earlier every year :P

    Putting up decorations at the start of Nov seems far too early.. it need to be a nice December maybe Saturday with the family, makes it feel special!

    I'm definitely feeling the Christmas excitement, already, but I won't put the official Christmas decorations and tree up until the weekend of Thanksgiving. We usually get the tree on Black Friday or that Saturday, let it 'settle' for a day, then decorate it.
