      When do you start putting up your Christmas decorations? Do you start the day after Thanksgiving or do you wait until December? I wait until the 7th of December.

      We’ll start putting ours up in another week to 10 days or so.

      For retail outlets, they usually put up festival decorations one month in advance.

        @jkct01, our town started putting up decorations on November 29 & 30, but most of the stores are just putting up decorations now. That doesn’t include Christmas advertisements, which have been up for a couple weeks.

        The stores would like to make their shoppers having the festival mood in order to buy more. There is a trend here for the retailers to get ready festival deco and items early to tell the community that they are the best store to shop all your festival needs.

        Thankfully, we are a smaller town that isn’t nearly as commercial as many. 🙂

        They do the same here, @angel08. On the main road, there are street lights every block, on both sides of the road, so they hang decorations across the road. There is also a spruce tree in town that is about 40 feet tall, and they put lights up in that and turn them on at night. They’ve had the lights up in the tree for a while, but haven’t finished putting up the decorations across the road yet. 🙂
