Decorated Yet?

All the twinkling, blinking, spectacular light displays, shiny holiday ornaments, and overall Christmas decorations.

Decorated Yet?

Postby Merry Sage » Wed Dec 03, 2008 1:06 pm

Not just in your own home, have you noticed your neighbours have their displays up now?

I was really surprised to see how many people in my area have their trees and outdoor lights up already. First time in the seven, nearly eight years we've been here that I've seen this. Last year it was the week leading up to Christmas before the street started looking more festive.

I can only think its a way of cheering people up, what with the non stop diet of doom and gloom in the media. And the fact that there's been major job losses in this area too, thanks largely to the banking collapse.

I think its great personally. We're all decorated (natch!) and its so nice to see this change, even if it is just this year. I won't be here next year to see if the same thing happens again as we'll be back in Canada, but I hope it will.

Absolutely! The tree was up after Turkey Day and the house completed 2 days later! The tree isnt quite finished to my taste.........but it is fully decorated. A new garland and flameless candles set a nice glow. Just need the outside finished.......time for DH to get a glowing! :scene:

The first house in our street had their outside lights up a week ago and we put ours up last night - looks fantasitc (will be taking pics and posting them soon).

I have not noticed many more but then I have been busy and not had much time to go out at night to see if there are any lights up in the neighbourhood. But I will be soon.

We have had our main tree up since November 20th and the other tree has been up for a week as have the inside decorations. I still need to put up two garlands over the hall doors and I will be done.

Then it is just time to relax, enjoy and bake, bake, bake...

Most of the decorations (except outdoor lights) are up; it's only taken a week. Now all I have to do is get rid of (put back in storage) all of the boxes and tubs cramming the living and dining room.

Contrast! Winterself. My Autumn decorations came down yesterday. Housecleaning and laundry finished and now my Christmas bins are in the great room. It takes 3 days, usually, to finish house. The tree goes up the day after Thanksgiving. On my way..
