Already!? :eek: That's just a little early, don't you think? I've always thought getting them up around Thanksgiving was rushing it! :lol:

Tinsel is forbidden in this house. :nono:

Hope you didn't mean me. I always put the lights up in the fall, living in Maine ,it will soon be to darn cold ,to mess with Christmas lights. So on a nice fall day up they go.

Wow! I saw people around here with Halloween stuff up and I thought that was pretty darn early. I decorate early, but we can't forget about Thanksgiving!! :rolleyes008:

I was just going to say the same Shelly . I thought about putting Halloween stuff up , but thought its still too early . I kept my Christmas lights up around my windows outside last year . Hopefully, they will work when I plug them in . If not, they are coming down and in the trash they are going . My electric bill is always too high anyway . :lol:

You do make a very valid point, GrammiePo! :yes: In Maine there is no winter decorating. :eek: Freeze your hands to the siding you would. :yes:

i have to admit i bought the 'buy one get one free' tins of sweets in Tesco last week - i'm going to put them in the loft so they last 'til Christmas!


Decorations in September though......that's just wrong!

:yes: and mince pies :lol:

Our friends start putting their outside decorations up the end of October because they always have a large display where they collect money for a different charity each year.

This year they are collecting for St Luke's Hospice, it's where my Dad spent his last few days :sigh;

Well I have a few gifts for the boy tucked away in case they become the "must have" toys as I refuse to queue for 3 days outside Hamleys. :lol:

But 1st December is decoration day in our house. I need to buy more tinsel before then though - left half my supply at Teresa's house last year. :D

Who me :lol: we leave on the 6th December and don't get home until the 30th and I usually take the decorations down on New Years Day so for 6 days it's not worth it. I will be buying some decs when we are on holiday so I can decorate where we stay though :D

Well, I went to Sainsburys today - they do indeed Christmas stuff in the seasonal aisle, right opposite the Halloween stuff! :rolleyes008:

They *even* had Chistmas cakes and mince pies.....wonder what the 'use by' date was?! :lol:

Grandpa Sweetie (Leu's DH) will begin putting up Christmas decorations the last week of September or the first week in October.

They have a huge display that runs from the peak of the roof to the front of the lawn and includes music and a snow machine! The only thing missed is the driveway--and that's because they have to use it! :)

Needless to say, it takes a while to assemble everything (he made most of the decorations from scratch, including a ferris wheel that turns!), then set it out and anchor it. He usually flips the switch on Saturday of Thanksgiving weekend (apart from trials), and they have a huge open house (or open front garden) the Saturday before Christmas (unless it's Christmas eve, in which case it's the previous week).

Two years ago he decided it would be his last year decorating. He had a heart attack and slowed down considerably. Wouldn't you know--last he was at it again! I don't think he'll stop until he physically can't do any of it any more!

That's so cool Taja!

I love watching the specials on HGTV around Christmas about the extreme displays people put up....
