Do you like that holiday decorations/candy/spir it starts early?

So, that time of the year has rolled around again. Long sleeved sweaters, thick coats, hot chocolate, time with family and friends and.. Christmas candy during Halloween? Already?

So far this Fall, I've noticed that holiday spirit seems to start earlier and earlier each year..

I've always known of families and towns putting up Christmas decorations and lights the day after Thanksgiving, but if you think about it, that's having a Christmas tree up for a full month before it actually rolls around and comes time to open the gifts. I'm all about the holiday season, but I never really got why some families did that. I was walking around at Walmart recently and saw the day after Halloween, Christmas candy, decorations, and store promotions went up immediately. I was almost shocked, but then I realized, of course, these holidays make the economy swell and expand in good ways because people buy all this good stuff from stores.

So I was wondering if anyone else noticed how quickly stores and neighbors rush from holiday to holiday, almost as if the holiday is a month long celebration. I can see how it's a fun to make holidays that way, but I've heard some others state that it's really ridiculous. I can see the benefits of stocking up early and having things prepared beforehand, as well. My question is do some of you guys actually like it or get bothered by it?

It doesn't bother me, but I've been curious as to why.

Only a month?

You're lucky.

Christmas crap comes out at the beginning of October around here, so we've got it for three months. I'm sick of Christmas by Halloween. Oh, and the local store finally caught onto me: they stopped carrying monster masks due to me putting them on the 3-foot-tall nutcracker figures for the past two years ...

I think I'll probably wind up in the minority of this poll, but I love Christmas so I like that they start putting stuff up a bit early.
Here you usually don't start seeing it all in stores until about Halloween, but it gives ample time to stock up on decorations and other things you might want.

I especially love when people put their decorations out early, I make it a habit to go walking around the block around the middle of December just to see all the pretty lights and such. ^_^

I liked it when Christmas decorations started after Thanksgiving - it seemed to the proper sequence. But if someone wants to put up decorations in July - it's a free country!!!

Every year Christmas seems to start earlier... I remember when it didn't start till Black Friday. Before too long it will be Christmas all year.

We have it the same here, 3 months of Christmas crap, ugh! I'm so sick of Christmas, why can't it be nice like it used to be? Spending time with family and friends, good food and drink and merriment; that's what I'd like to see more of!

Christmas nowadays is so commercialized, it's all about getting the best gifts for everyone and running around acting so selfish and mean, so irritating.

It bugs me that Christmas stuff gets put out so early. We're barely done with Halloween and everything is out (hell, I've seen some places that were bringing out Christmas stuff BEFORE Halloween).

I so agree and I said the same thing yesterday when I was in the store grocery shopping.

It doesn't bother me that it goes up early. I enjoy Christmas, so I kind of like it.

It doesn't bother me. Everyone has their own Christmas traditions. Some parts of my family put their tree up Thanksgiving Day, while my grandmother always put hers up on Christmas Eve.

I work retail, and we have had a Christmas display since the very beginning of October. It ruins the mood for me.

I don't mind it up early but too early is just ridiculous. If I go to the store for halloween stuff 2 weeks before Halloween and it's all been pulled and replaced with Christmas stuff, thats irritating so thanks Walmart.

i don't mind it in the beginning, but then i get so burned out earlier and earlier every year

I hate seeing Christmas stuff up before December. I put my tree up a week before Christmas and take it down 12 days after, and that's quite enough. Any longer is just excessive.

I know that it's the big time for retailers to make their money, but Christmas stuff up before Halloween is absolutely ridiculous. I used to not want it until Thanksgiving week, but have long since given up on that. I don't like it, but I'm learning to live with it.

I think it takes away from the holiday season. Some of the stores had their Christmas displays up the last week of Sept. this year.

I love the winter and Xmas, but it does intrigue me when stores put out Xmas decorations in the middle of October.

I have a co-worker that put up her three during the first week of November. I don't dislike early decorating, but I think it's a bit odd. Isn't that tree going to die by Christmas? Or maybe it's fake.. I personally prefer decorations closer to the holiday, to get me in the spirit. If they're up too long it doesn't seem like anything special when the holiday arrives.

I don't like it. I don't get into the Christmas spirit until December.
