ok- i am a big christmas fan.... in fact i am a fan of
all holidays... i like to celebrate them all... my favorite
is halloween followed closely by christmas....
however, i think there is a "socially acceptable"
time table for christmas.... in order to enjoy each holiday
you can't bring the next one on too soon....
october- you get to enjoy halloween for the entire month
you get to decorate, carve pumpkins, plan costumes,
go to haunted houses, corn mazes, parties, etc..
november- you get to enjoy fall, the look of the leaves, the
crispness in the air....then the big day you get to
cook all day for the dinner that takes a table of
men 15 minutes to devour...then the rest of the day
you spend cleaning dishes... not my favorite holiday
but after all the work is done you relax and pull out
the christmas ads and make your plans for the
day of shopping and where you will be standing in
line at 4:30am, which is a fair payoff for the day of
cooking and cleaning the day before....
december- after the day of shopping you can ring in the beginning of
christmas any day of your choosing.... remember if your going
to go thru all the trouble of decorating you should be able to
enjoy it for a month.... the lighting of the out door christmas lights
should begin no sooner than dec 1st and continue no later than
jan lst.....this turning on christmas lights until the middle of jan
are against the "holiday rules"
However, i am not the boss of the holidays.... so do whatever you want and enjoy :)
