    Too early?

    Is it wrong for me to decorate my house before Christmas? My family always has started around 1th november. Is that wrong?

    We;ve always started around or right at Thanksgiving.

    Depending on the weather, we will out up the outside lights early November, so we can turn on the outdoor lights as soon as Thanksgiving is over.

    Smile baubles in colours

    inside I have now some fall/autumn colour baubles in bowls around house end of november I replace those with red/green gold/red red/silver baubles in bowls and on dec 1 that is when I put up xmas decorations and the tree I wait until around mid dec since my heating system will dry out that xmastree so for it to be fresh for xmas must wait patiently.

    I don't wait till after thanksgiving to put up my tree. I do it on Halloween and enjoy it for 2 months. I love having the spirit of Christmas in my house. I am already saving up money to buy gifts but next year I will start early with my shopping.I would think Nov 1 would be good for outside decorations

    I'd say november is fine.

    Normally I find its best to get all other festivities out of the way such as haloween, bonfire night and thnaksgiving.

    It's November 5th which almost means its Thanksgiving which means it's absolutely okay to start decorating. I put up lights today go for it. But definitely save the tree for early December.
    ***Happy Holidays!***
