A few weeks ago I commented on Christmas lights seen in windows, however today I saw a whole house done up with lights going up to the roof, a santa climbing up the chimney and various twinkling lights, indoors there was a tree etc.
Is it me or is this just too early for the whole works, the novelty must wear off by Christmas.
I dread putting up a modest tree and leave it to the last week, however I like to see houses decorated Im not a spoilsport, \I just think mid November is too soon. anyone agree

I take them down on 12th night and not a day later, and am glad to see the back of them [although I enjoy seeing them for the first fortnight.]

We will be decorating our house next weekend, can"t wait !

Am so sorry to see them go on 12th night, whenever that maybe. Seem to remember in the mists of time, a discussion on G/N about when that actually was !

Oh yes, I remember that one, Nonu! grin

In fact, there may have been more than one...

No decorations before 11th December which is DD2s birthday and it didn't seem fair to overshadow it with Christmas when she was small and we have carried that on. Love the decorations but by New Years day, I have had enough of them. not sure how people put up with them for 6 weeks or more. Keeps them special that way too.
