Christmas season, including music, decorations, etc. should start on December 24 and be done at 12:01 am on December 26.

Thanksgiving is the best - food, naps and football. But I love Christmas music and decorations too. Christmas shopping...not so much.

Where I am supposed to be
I saw Christmas displays up already at a local home improvement retailer. It took everything I had not to scream. I love Christmas but this is too early. At least let Halloween happen before we get to Christmas.

And a cute little snowplow driven by an inmate to clear a little strip of field where they will try to kick a field goal from.

My husband works for Costco. He sent me the picture of the displays going up last week. I love Christmas, but since living in the South, it doesn't feel them same. The last 2 years have reached 80 degrees on Christmas day. It's going to take a bit getting used to it. But I do love watching a game on Sunday afternoon when the field is covered in snow while I lounge with the breeze coming through the windows!!

Bah humbug...Always love Halloween, appreciate the time off at Thanksgiving, but Christmas is just a hassle to me. Why can't it just be Christmas...and not the buying pressure it has become.

Up here in Montana we've gone straight from forest fires and choking smoky air, to snow and blustery wind! Yikes. Usually autumn is especially pretty here, too. frown

Amen RebekahL! I have been wondering if we are going to experience any of the beauties of autumn. I had planned a trip to Red Lodge and Bozeman.

AMEN! A game so notorious, it has it's own Wikipedia entry: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Snowplow_Game and NFL video: http://www.nfl.com/videos/nfl-videos/09000d5d82651450/Vault-Keeper-The-Snowplow-game

Any where but work
Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas; this is the proper order to decorate and celebrate the holidays wink. I started my Christmas 2017 shopping in January 2017, try to pick gifts up as ideas pop into my head.

I don't like Halloween so I generally ignore it. Will use fall décor at home, put out the Pilgrims in Nov. Love Thanksgiving! (you left out football, DQ) Love Christmas!

Amen! I boycotted presents last year at Christmas and I thought everyone's head was going to explode! I'd been trying to do away with gift exchanges for years, but since no one else felt the same I finally put my foot down and removed my name from the mix. It was so much more enjoyable that way. I love getting together with everyone and eating good food and playing games. Why do we have to ruin it with gifts?

I have to admit I am ready for all the Christmas lights, I will have a one year old that will absolutely love them. Also excited for her Santa pic.

Got me one of them fancy lasers last year. Run an extension cord out to the mailbox and presto! Laser light show!
