I don't like seeing Christmas lights on before Thanksgiving.
I don't like hearing Christmas music before Thanksgiving.
I hate that Hobby Lobby (and many other stores) are out of all of their Christmas stuff before December even hits.
I don't like that everyone wants to skip Thanksgiving. Or it seems that way anyway.
I miss the days where you wouldn't see Christmas stuff (or hear the music on the radio) until turkey day.
For me it just takes away the excited anticipation of the Christmas season. And then you get to hear how everyone is 'sick of Christmas' before it even happens. That's sad.
So the outside stuff goes up the weekend before Thanksgiving and the inside including getting our tree happens Thanksgiving weekend. Although, now that I live somewhere that it snows I may have to change that timeline a bit!
I love having all of my outdoor lights up ahead of time so that on turkey day (or night) I can turn the lights on and 'officially' start the Christmas season. But they don't go on before then. There's people around here who have had their lights up and on for the last week (or more).
I make a big deal out of it. I wait til it's dark and then we all go outside & light up the house. Thankfully it usually doesn't turn out like Clark Griswold where I'm freaking out at lights not turning on & attacking miniature reindeer ;)
Call me old fashioned. But I miss how it used to be :)
Disclaimer - and if you're one of those people who turns on their lights early I am in no way criticizing you. I just miss the days when we used to wait for the Christmas season!
